Independence Day: Resurgence Viral Video Asks You To Join Earth Space Defense

We're only a month-and-a-half away from seeing the aliens who attacked Earth 20 years ago in Independence Day to regroup and return to finish the job, and as we've seen in the trailers and news reports for Independence Day: Resurgence, we've already rebuilt, and even utilized alien technology to advance our weapons and society, with a global initiative that founded Earth Space Defense, which includes  a military based on the moon. 

Now there's a new viral video that was released in the form of a recruitment video for Earth Space Defense with William Fichtner trying to persuade you to be all you can be in...space. And you can actually enlist in ESD and play mini games to reveal new footage from the movie, and some of them provide story details that we might see in the movie. Watch the trailer below: 

You can enlist in Earth Space Defense here. Once you enlist, you can choose four different missions, and upon completing each of them, you can watch four different 30-second featurettes with some fresh footage from the movie and commentary from actors like Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman and Jessie Usher, as well as director Roland Emmerich.


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 defense program to protect the planet. But nothing can prepare us for the aliens’ advanced and unprecedented force. Only the ingenuity of a few brave men and women can bring our world back from the brink of extinction.

Independence Day: Resurgence hits theaters on June 24.
