Roland Emmerich was honored at an imprint ceremony held at TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, CA, on Monday (June 20, 2016). On hand as featured guest speakers were the star of his latest film, Jeff Goldblum as well as close friend and producer Harald Kloser. The ceremony was held in conjunction with the red carpet premiere of "Independence Day: Resurgence" which opens nationwide June 24, 2016. Fellow castmembers Viveca A. Fox and Joey King also attended the ceremony held in the courtyard of the Chinese theatre.
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.
