On July 3, 1996, the most glorious alien-invasion movie hit the theaters and we forever knew: Independence Day. Will Smith was at the top of his game. Vivica A. Fox managed to keep her son AND her giant golden labrador alive. Bill Pullman was the best President of the United States (ever) with the best motivational-lets-go-die-in-war speech (ever). Jeff Goldblum, once again, just charmed the pants off everyone.
Twenty years later, we got a sequel with Independence Day: Resurgence. Pullman and Goldblum returned, joined by new cast members, including Liam Hemsworth, Jessie T. Usher (who played a grown-up Dylan) and Maika Monroe (who played a grown-up Patricia, President Whitmore’s daughter from the first film). Although, the actor who stole the show was Brent Spiner, who returned to reprise his role as Dr. Brakish Okun.
