The newest “Independence Day Resurgence” trailer takes world destruction to a whole new level.

20 years after the events of the original “Independence Day,” the world has united to build up a defense network capable of repelling another alien invasion.

But no one was prepared when the aliens from the first film not only returned, but returned with a ship so large that — as Dr. David Levinson points out — “it has its own gravity.”

The new film stars Liam Hemsworth, Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, Vivica A. Fox, Brent Spiner, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jessie Usher, Maika Monroe and Sela Ward. Will Smith will not be returning for the sequel, as it has been explained his character died in the intervening years.

Roland Emmerich returned to direct the sequel and also co-wrote the screenplay with Dean Devlin and Carter Blanchard.

“Indpendence Day Resurgence” will blast its way into theaters on June 24.
