Roland Emmerich talks about the future of the Independence Day franchise
Following its big screen debut this past summer, Independence Day: Resurgence today comes home on Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D and also as a 4K Ultra HD edition. We got an early sneak peek at some of the home release’s new special features and then sat down with both Independence Day franchise director Roland Emmerich and VFX Supervisor Volker Engel. Emmerich says that the future of the Independence Day franchise has yet to be decided, but he confirms that bringing the story to the small screen may be one route it could take! Check out the whole conversation in the player below and, just beneath that, find technical specs for all three home entertainment versions.
We always knew they were coming back. After Independence Day redefined the event movie genre, the next epic chapter delivers global spectacle 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.
Independence Day: Resurgence stars Liam Hemsworth, Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, Vivica A. Fox, Brent Spiner, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jessie T. Usher, Maika Monroe, Sela Ward and Angelababy.
