Independence Day is returning to theaters on July 3, 2013 with a full 3D post-conversion, 20th Century Fox revealed today.

The original film, released in 1996, starred Will Smith, Bill Pullman, Jeff Goldblum and Randy Quaid and was directed by Roland Emmerich with a screenplay by Emmerich and Dean Devlin. A loose re-telling of H.G. Wells' "The War of the Worlds," the sci-fi actioner grossed over $800 million worldwide.

Rumors of a sequel have persisted ever since the original film's release, but over the years, nothing solid has materialized. Still, with Men in Black 3 a box office hit 15 fifteen years after the original, ID4's 3D re-release could potentially also serve as way of gauging viewer interest in a second big screen invasion.

The July 3rd release date puts Independence Day 3D up against Universal Pictures' Despicable Me 2.
