Independence Day 2 Now Has a Title

For many fans of the original 1994 film, there was a lot of excitement when an Independence Day sequel was officially confirmed. Since its initial greenlight, several cast members have been confirmed, including the return of original cast members like Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman and Vivica A. Fox, as well as newcomers like Liam Hemsworth and William Fichtner. Original director Roland Emmerich will be returning to the chair for the 2016 sequel, after twenty two years of waiting for fans. While I liked Independence Day, I didn't see why it was so beloved by so many people. It seemed kind of average to me. But it looks like the sequel is going in a good direction, so I may check it out. And now, the sequel has an official title. 

The sequel will officially be called Independence Day Resurgence, which I think sounds like a cool title. This movie will show the return of the aliens and mankind standing up to them, which is exactly how "resurgence" fits in. It seems like the plot will revolve around the people of Earth using recovered alien technology from the initial attack to build weapons to protect them from subsequent invasions, which I think is a genius idea. Normally, I would say that doing a sequel to this movie like this after so many years is simply a cash-grab, but this is a legitimately cool idea, and is probably the best direction for this movie to go in.
