Stars from the original film, Jeff Goldblum and Vivica Fox, were reunited on the red carpet for the world premiere of "Independence Day: Resurgence" in Hollywood, Monday (June 20, 2016). New additions to the cast, Liam Hemsworth and Joey King, also kicked off the promotional band-wagon for the action-packed sequel directed by Roland Emmerich whom, by the way, received Hollywood honors with his imprints in cement on Monday as well. The German film director, screenwriter, and producer, widely known for his disaster films, directed the original "Independence Day" in 1996 that became the first film to gross $100 million in less than a week and went on to become one of the most financially successful films of all time according to Box office Mojo.
Kudos to the stars of the film and guest attendees who braved the brutal 100 degree Los Angeles heat on the red carpet, and still managed to look great and seemed to take it all in stride.
About the film: 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.

About the Film:
The BFG (Mark Rylance), while a giant himself, is a Big Friendly Giant and nothing like the other inhabitants of Giant Country. Standing 24-feet tall with enormous ears and a keen sense of smell, he is endearingly dim-witted and keeps to himself for the most part. Giants like Bloodbottler (Bill Hader) and Fleshlumpeater (Jemaine Clement) on the other hand, are twice as big and at least twice as scary and have been known to eat humans, while the BFG prefers Snozzcumber and Frobscottle. Upon her arrival in Giant Country, Sophie, a precocious 10-year-old girl from London, is initially frightened of the mysterious giant who has brought her to his cave, but soon comes to realize that the BFG is actually quite gentle and charming, and, having never met a giant before, has many questions. The BFG brings Sophie to Dream Country where he collects dreams and sends them to children, teaching her all about the magic and mystery of dreams. Having both been on their own in the world up until now, their affection for one another quickly grows, but Sophie’s presence in Giant Country has attracted the unwanted attention of the other giants, who have become increasingly more bothersome. Sophie and the BFG soon depart for London to see the Queen (Penelope Wilton) and warn her of the precarious giant situation, but they must first convince the Queen and her maid, Mary (Rebecca Hall), that giants do indeed exist. Together, they come up with a plan to get rid of the giants once and for all. “The BFG” opens in U.S. theaters on July 1, 2016, the year that marks the 100th anniversary of Dahl’s birth.
