20th Century Fox has unveiled a jumbo-sized trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence, the long-awaited sequel to the 1996 popcorn classic. Featuring a run time just short of five minutes, the clip is full of new footage that sums up the plot of the film. To wit: it's the 20th anniversary of the events from the first film, and humankind has harvested the technology left behind by the aliens so that they can protect themselves from future attacks. On cue, Jeff Goldblum's David Levinson discovers that a downed alien ship has been transmitting a distress signal, which means earth is due for yet another close encounter. Independence Day: Resurgence hits theaters June 24th.
