11 AM matinee here I come, I think they run just under these days

Probably the same for me unless work gets in the way and I end up delaying until I lazily pirate a decent copy. Also, it's nice to see Vivica Fox and Brent Spiner get rescued from the straight to Redbox ghetto but where is Will "welcome to earth" Smith?

SolRo
He dead

infinite zest
That alien kicked sand in cool cat's face!

infinite zest
But yeah Vivica's career seems like a roller coaster; usually a big spot in a Tarantino movie gets you a big career boost (see John Travolta, Sam Jackson, Christoph Waltz, Pam Grier and even Kurt Russell) after you've sort of faded from the spotlight, but not so for Ms. Fox.

BHWW
YOU WOULD ALL BE DEAD WITHOUT MY DAVID!...AGAIN
infinite zest
Yeah for some reason I thought Judd Hirsch died in the first one. But there he is! I'm pretty mixed on this: for all the horrible bullshit that Roland Emmerich has made over the years, Independence Day and Stargate were two movies that really created the template that modern sci-fi/action &explosion-gasms use today. I'd say ID4 was just as influential as Star Wars. But whereas you can do a lot in the Star Wars universe, this looks utterly unpredictable and after 20 years of action & explosion-gasms I don't know if I can take another 2 hours and change worth of it.

infinite zest
"unpredictable" = "predictable."

StanleyPain
I honestly never had a problem with ID4. It was a big, stupid action movie but it delivered pretty well and was the kind of over the top sci-fi disaster film that going to the movies was practically invented for. I honestly am cool with a sequel so long as its more of the same. Emmerich is a pretty terrible filmmaker, but it seems like under certain circumstances he at least understands how to properly utilize his terribleness.

infinite zest
Yeah.. I actually caught some of 2012 when I was over at my parents' house not too long ago, thinking "how can this suck? 2+ hours of the world falling apart" and I was asleep within an hour. But I remember when I was 13 when ID4 came out, and it was like "dude it's the movie where they BLOW UP THE WHITE HOUSE AND THE EMPIRE STATE BUILDING" and I was like "cool." The aliens were very tangential for me. It could've been a gas leak and I would've been ok wth that because shit goes boom. But the idea of a domestic space counterterrorism operation seems kind of cool now, so I'll be looking forward to torrenting this.

Lurchi
2012 put me to sleep too. I woke up for the last half hour which I remember as literally nothing but flashing lights and sirens.

chumbucket
I'm pretty sure Randy Quaid won't be coming back for this as a zombie drunk.
MurgatroidMendelbaum
Why not?
He and Brent Spiner could team up as the pilot/scientist zombie duo we never knew we wanted.

chumbucket
I dunno, his recent arrest and release in my town told me he was pretty much done with Hollywood for the foreseeable future.

Oh and have you seen his YouTube videos?

fedex
ah, but you forget there is nothing Hollywood loves more.....

...than an Underdog!

Since the first one wasn't terrible enough let's make another!

FADE IN

Jeff Goldblum holds up an iPhone to the alien mothership.

*EXPLODE*


FADE OUT
Quad9Damage
Against all odds, Jeff Goldblum must install a trojan in the mothership that drains the alien economy by stealing their bank account and routing numbers.

Where's Will Smith?
infinite zest
Something something Scientology something something.

Quad9Damage
Off purging humanity of the real alien ghost invaders.

SolRo
The website said he died testing those planes In between movies

Xenocide
I can't wait for Will Smith's tie-in rap single about being dead.

Cena_mark
Really? Will Smtih made Indepence Day and Independence day made him. How is he not in the sequal. His character should be a general at this point.

SolRo
He would be, if he weren't exploded

infinite zest
He's probably busy with Suicide Squad and Bad Boys 3, but it is weird that he wouldn't show up in some form or another, get paid a couple million bucks for a day's work on a set, and go back to his other stuff.

Scrotum H. Vainglorious
If YT comments are to be believed it's because he was asking for an exorbitant amount of money as well as having his kids cast into it.

SolRo
sounds like the kind of demands that would get you exploded in a backstory.

Cena_mark
I understand for parents to support their children's dreams, but Will needs to recognize that his boy doesn't have IT. When you watch old episodes of Fresh Prince, you can see early on that he had IT! For a silly sitcom, was able to show great range, and his charisma was undeniable. Will trying to shove his son down our throats is like the WWE shoving The Rock's cousin down our throats.

infinite zest
Also it's never good to throw your kid into something just because you can. I grew up with enough musicians whose parents had them playing violin at a professional level by 6 years old, and by the time they're 18 and on their own they'd rather be doing anything else.

Cena_mark
I think Jaiden genuinly wants to act. He just sucks

infinite zest
Yeah, I guess I was thinking that Pursuit of Happiness was earlier, but he was six or seven and that's old enough to make your own decisions, like maybe not when it comes to bedtime but at least as far as choosing to act or not. And now he's like 17 himself.. they grow up so fast!

I actually met Jaden and his mom under weird circumstances one time. My ex worked at a popular shoe store in Madison which was right next door to a concert venue, and Jada PInkett Smith's metal band was playing a show next door and she brought Jaden along. Anyway I'd usually steal her away for "lunch" which meant a couple of beers and shots at the adjacent bar. The owners spent the winter in Hawaii so it was the employees running the store and everybody took turns getting drunk until the store closed. Anyway I walked back over to the shoe store with her and Jada thought I worked there. It was a busy saturday and all the employees were occupied so I just said that I did. Anyway she was looking for a pair of kids' Chucks for her son, and I didn't know Jada or Jaden from anyone else in the world, so I showed them the Chuck Taylor selection, one of which was a pair of I, Robot Chucks for kids with Will Smith's face on the side. All of a sudden the kid goes "Daddy!" and I'm like "huh?" Jada just laughed and introduced herself and Jaden to me. Very nice people. They didn't get the Will Smith chucks but thanked me for my help and offered me free tickets to the show that night, at which point I said that I appreciated it but I had to get to work soon.

ashtar.
>I actually met Jaden and his mom under weird circumstances one time.

You know what? I don't believe you've met this particular minor celebrity under weird circumstances. This is where I'm drawing the line.

Nominal
Me neither. A search for Converse with Will Smiths likeness is coming up with zilch.

infinite zest
Hmmph.. damnit I can't find them either! The thing about this shoe store, Jack's Shoes in Madison Wisconsin was that it was famous for having the largest selection of Chuck Taylors in the country, many of which were super-limited edition, and celebrities and musicians playing next door would come in all the time. Kanye West would come in with nothing but a garbage bag whenever he was on tour and load up with some 50 pair at a time. It was the shoe equivalent of visiting Powell's Books when you're in Portland Ore.

But sadly the store's gone now and I can't find any proof of their existence, not even on ebay. That kind of pisses me off because A.) I could've gotten them with the employee discount and B.) I'd snap a picture for y'all.

infinite zest
There was also a pair of holographic Batman Chucks that I might have buried somewhere at my parents' place with Christian Bale (not Batman) on the side, and when you moved it turned into Batman, which I took for free because nobody bought them. If I remember when I'm over there for Christmas but Chuck Taylor was into celebrity faces for a while in the 'oughties. None of them sold well but Jack's Shoes was sort of the test market for a lot of failed Chuck products :)

Rodents of Unusual Size
Neither Will Smith nor his god awful spawn are in this.

I might actually enjoy this. I mean it will be horrible, and I'm sick to death of alien invasion movies but...no Smiths!
Two Jar Slave
So, when did we all turn against Will Smith? Was it After Earth, or before?

Caminante Nocturno
Nobody was around to turn against him before the Earth existed.

Xenocide
Stars for Camininante, though he forgot to consider the possibility of time travelers who hate Will Smith.

infinite zest
I can pinpoint the exact moment for me, the MTV movie awards with his "Wild Wild West" song. Not because the performance sucked, but because I was so excited for a movie that still hadn't came out yet. Some people have the Phantom Menace, I have my Wild Wild West. :(

That being said, I randomly saw him on some late night show at a bar the other night, dude has not aged AT ALL since Fresh Prince! He was promoting one of his "serious" roles. A lot of people seem to have forgotten that in the height of Fresh Prince Mania, his first main acting role was as the protagonist in an adaptation of Guare's Six Degrees of Separation.

So he can do both funny and dramatic and everything in-between, no sweat, and he's really good at what he does. But I can't think of a single other Hollywood actor who takes me so out of whatever character he or she is playing, devoured by Will Smith simply being Will Smith.

il fiore bel
I still enjoy Will Smith.

I also enjoy getting breaks from him.

bawbag
He'd done awful pap before it i'm aware, but the movie that really did it for me was 'I am Legend'.

Vincent Price >

fedex
yeah I worked on Phantom Menace, so i know what you mean.

Ironically, they were working on WWW at ILM at the same time so I got so see a lot of their work too.

Rodents of Unusual Size
He's a Scientologist and I'm a Scientologist bigot.

I mean I'm a bigot against Scientology. I'm not one of them! Really!

I'm looking forward to saying "I never thought I would fall asleep during something this loud" again.

I hope this bookends the era of noisy, fast-cut, gray, destruction-on-a-massive-scale, characters-nobody-cares-about movies that the first one started. Still nice to see Jeff Goldblum, though.

Emmerich did far more damage to summer cinema than Michael Bay.

OH, CRAP!
fedex
Oh, I'd simply Loooooove it if Harvey Fierstein was in it again....
infinite zest
Yeah.. back when I was working for Broadway Fiddler on the Roof was being promoted as having Firestein as the patriarch, and only in the small print did it say which cities Harvey would actually perform in, one of which was not Portland. Imagine thousands of phone calls from George Costanza's angry mom for weeks after its run.. :(

Dang, is that President Pullman at 1:03 and 1:14? He's looking good for a guy who's spent the last 20 years in the Oval Office.
Rodents of Unusual Size
Well someone needs to really president the SHIT out of our country now that there are aliens.

infinite zest
But that's what Trump's been saying all along!

One day, I hope to make an alien invasion movie where the aliens park one of their giant spaceships at L1 to block the sun for a couple of years, then they take over without firing a single shot.
