I think that my buddy Joe Cunningham sums it up rather well, honestly.

Seriously: it looks like they’ve decided to take advantage of the fact that all the actors are twenty years older by setting the sequel twenty years later, as well. I find this somewhat reassuring; it implies that people took seriously the idea of making this sequel. That’s not always a given.
PS: Of course I’m going to go see this film. I’ve seen the first Independence Day more times than I can count; no way am I going to pass this up. Unless I thought that it would suck; and it doesn’t look guaranteed to suck, based on this trailer.
