You would have thought that with the incredible success of Independence Day that there would have been at least one sequel by now, but there’s only recently been any serious talk of one.
There’s been talk of a sequel to Independence Day for a while. Actually two sequels, ID Forever Part I and Part II.
A potential sequel for the sci-fi action Independence Day (ID4) seems to be moving forward, slowly but surely.
Filmmaker Dean Devlin is talking about finally crafting a sequel to his hit sci-fi film Stargate.
Independence Day, or ID4 as most of us like to call it, was the big event blockbuster of 1996.
Along with billions of others, I had enormous fun watching the film when it first hit theaters.
It’s been quite a blockbuster summer so far at the movies, with ginormous hits like The Avengers, and big flops like Battleship.
A lot of top Hollywood talent is headed to the world of television these days.
Disaster films were part of a genre that was popular for several years in the 70’s, with such movies as The Poseidon Adventure, The Towering Inferno, and Earthquake.
In recent years, Shyamalan’s star has faded, thanks to a lot of terrible, half-assed movies that didn’t live up to their initial promise.
I still think ID4 is great for what it is, a big, dumb popcorn film where you can turn off your brain and have fun for two and a half hours.
Remember when the world was supposed to end this past summer, but didn’t?
Back in the day before movies played on many screens at once, I stood in my share of long lines to see the latest blockbuster.
