We always knew they were coming back.
After Independence Day redefined the event movie genre, the next epic chapter delivers global spectacle on an unimaginable scale. Using recovered Alien technology, the nations of Earth have collaborated on an immense defence program to protect the planet. But nothing can prepare us for the Aliens’ advanced and unprecedented force. Only a few brave men and women can bring our world back from the brink of extinction.
After the great war of 1996, Levinson spent 20 years trying to prepare us for the next attack he always knew was coming, using the Alien technology acquired during and after the first invasion. He was appointed to be the first Director of the Earth Space Defense program (ESD).
US president Thomas J. Whitmore led the planetary defense in 1996. Due to his close encounters with the Aliens at that time, he ‘knows’ what the Aliens know. He has visions of their return and dark premonitions of the Aliens’ plans for Earth.
Raised as an orphan, he is a heroic fighter pilot of Alien-human hybrid jets. His outspokenness, as well as his fearlessness and occasional disregard for authority, land him in hot water.
