Never before has the term bigger is better carried more weight than while watching the latest trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence.

A sequel to the original 1996 Independence Day, Resurgence tells the story of the Earth Space Defence (ESD) a military program that’s the first line of defence against the alien menace, which nearly wiped out mankind in the first film.

Unfortunately for Earth, the strange tentacle beasties were able to transmit a distress signal before their final defeat in the last movie, and the aliens return with even bigger ships.

Can mankind survive its new darkest day? From the looks of this trailer, no – but that doesn’t mean that we’ll go quietly into that dark night, we’re going to try to live on, we’re going to try to survive.

Leading the charge against the evil extraterrestrials is Jake Morrison (Liam Hemsworth) an ESD pilot and Dylan Dubrow-Hiller (Jessie Usher), the stepson of Will Smith’s character from the original.

Of course you couldn’t make a sequel to Independence Day without a few returning faces Roland Emmerich’s back in the director’s chair.

While both Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman return as David Levinson former President Thomas J. Whitmore respectively.

Even Brent Spiner’s back as the kooky director of Area 51, Dr. Brackish Okun, and we’re pretty sure he died in the last film!

As we say bigger seems to better in this film, with a ship the size of the entire Atlantic Ocean.

And while the last alien super-weapon was capable of wiping out landmarks in the blink of an eye, this new one seems to topple entire cities like they’re made of Lego.

Don’t go thinking think this is going to be another Roland Emmerich destruction porn-fest though, the film’s got its fair share of laughs with Goldblum, obviously, delivering a few zingers.

The aliens return to Earth, well UK cinemas on June 24, 2016.
