Those watching Sunday’s Super Bowl 50 live might have been left wondering how fast Twentieth Century Fox put together their trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence. After all the ‘fly-over’ and the soundtrack seem to closely match the half-time show. However it’s smoke, mirror and explosions. Though it sounds like Lady Ga-Ga’s version of the US National Anthem it’s actually an earlier recording of a performance by Angie Johnson, an Air Force veteran and Voice contestant at an earlier game. However kudos to the studio and editing department for making it feel organically part of the night’s proceedings.
Will Smith won;t be back (unless there’s a sleight of hand going on, his character was reported killed off between the Days) but the likes of Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman Judd Hirsch, Vivica A. Fox and Brent Spiner, will be joined by Liam Hemsworth, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Jessie Usher.
