Last month, the 2nd trailer for “Independence Day: Resurgence” took Malaysians by surprise when it featured a short cameo of Kuala Lumpur City Centre’s Petronas Twin Towers getting smashed to bits.
Well, guess what? Malaysia’s iconic landscape has now received its very own movie poster!
For those that didn’t know, “Independence Day: Resurgence” is the sequel to 1996’s sci-fi blockbuster “Independence Day”, which has been in development for 2 decades.
Once again, humankind is on the brink of extinction against the return of a ruthless alien species after the first alien invasion took place 20 years ago. However, nothing can prepare them for the aliens’ advanced and unprecedented force.
A new task force of alien ships are attacking Mother Earth again, this time with the technology that manipulates gravity, levitating significant landmarks into the sky and dropping them on London’s city.
As such, it is up to a new generation of brave men and women to come together to “fight off the next wave of extraterrestrials, especially before the aliens delivers global catastrophe on an unimaginable scale”.
Returning cast members – Bill Pullman, Jeff Goldblum, Vivica A. Fox, and Judd Hirsch – will be joined by Liam Hemsworth and Jessie Usher (who will be playing the son of Will Smith’s character, Col. Steven Hiller).
Watch the trailer below to catch KLCC’s dramatic appearance at the 2:19 marker.
“Independence Day: Resurgence” opens in cinemas on 23rd June 2016.
