The first trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence is here; giving us plenty of faith that the sequel will live up to its predecessor. If you loved the first film, we think you’re gonna love this one.

The movie will be starring Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Liam Hemsworth, Judd Hirsch, Vivica A. Fox, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Brent Spiner, Jessie Usher, Maika Monroe and Sela Ward. Will Smith unfortunately isn’t returning to reprise his role, but the new set of heroes will more than fill his shoes.

Here’s the synopsis:

“We always knew they were coming back. 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 Alien’s advanced and unprecedented force. Only the ingenuity of a few brave men and women can bring our world back from the brink of extinction” 

If that doesn’t make for an awesome setup, we don’t know what will.

Independence Day: Resurgence hits theaters 24 June 2016.
