'More spectacle' to Independence

The sequel to blockbuster Independence Day will provide "more spectacle than we have ever seen", star Jeff Goldblum has promised.

The original film, which was released in 1996, saw Goldblum and Will Smith battle to save the world from an alien invasion and the sequel will pick up 20 years later.

Smith will not return for Independence Day Resurgence, but Goldblum is back in the role of David Levinson, who is now in charge of an operation known as Earth Space Defence.
