‘Independence Day 2: Resurgence’ Now Playing In Theaters Nationwide

The highly anticipated sequel to director Roland Emmerich‘s 1996 blockbuster Independence Day 2: Resurgence is now playing in theaters nationwide. Despite a failed effort to bring back Will Smith, who played one of the lead roles in the original film, the new sequel has gained much anticipation from fans of the original, who no doubt are excited to see veteran actors Jeff Goldblum (Jurassic Park, The Grand Budapest Hotel) and Bill Pullman (Spaceballs, While You Were Sleeping) reunite onscreen to fight aliens! Also returning from the original film are actors Vivica A. Fox (Juwanna Man, Kill Bill: Vol 1), Brent Spiner (The Aviator, Star Trek: The Next Generation), and Judd Hirsch (Ordinary People, A Beautiful Mind), who are joined by new lead Liam Hemsworth (The Hunger Games, Paranoia), and actors Jessie T. Usher (When The Game Stands Tall, Survivor’s Remorse), Joey King (Crazy Stupid Love, The Conjuring), Maika Monroe (Labor Day, It Follows), Sela Ward (The Day After Tomorrow, Gone Girl), and William Fichtner (Armageddon, Black Hawk Down). Despite popularity among fans, the film has not received good reviews from critics, who have called it “boring” and “loaded down with ’90s cheesiness.” Not sure how audiences will react or if they will agree with the critics, but I guess we’ll find out this weekend. Enjoy!

Producers Adam McKay And Will Ferrell Look To Bring ‘Manimal’ To The Big Screen

Even though the show was canceled after only 8 episodes, the 1980s cult-hit Manimals, which followed a man who could change into animals to fight crime, is being picked up at Sony Pictures Animation for a live-action-animated film, and comedy duo Adam McKay and Will Ferrell are lending a hand with the production. Although neither will be directly involved in the filming process, the comedy team is already busy promoting the movie, which is expected to be an action-comedy with lots of visual effects and computer animation. McKay and Ferrell most recently reunited for the long-awaited sequel to their 2004 comedy hit, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgandy, and while Manimal is the latest on their list of projects to complete, the two already have a number of films that will be wrapping up production very soon, including Daddy’s Home and Sleeping With Other People. Stay tuned for more updates.
