The INDEPENDENCE DAY 2 Promo Art and Synopsis Revealed

Independence Day Sequel

The first Independence Day 2 piece of promotional art and synopsis have surfaced at the Licensing Expo in Las Vegas.

The synopsis was originally spotted on Rotten Tomatoes (via IndieWire) last month, but now it has appeared in a “licensing expo magazine” (via Comicbook), so here you go:

After Independence Day redefined the event movie genre, the next epic chapter delivers global catastrophe on an unimaginable scale. Using recovered alien technology, the nations of Earth have collaborated on an immense defense program to protect the planet. But nothing can prepare us for the aliens’ advanced and unprecedented force. Only the ingenuity of a few brave men and women can bring our world back from the brink of extinction.

And here’s the first Independence Day 2 promo art (via Collider), which captures the essence of the plot synopsis. Looks like Russia will be Ground Zero this time.
