Bill Pullman rallying the world with a heroic speech? Check. Giant alien spaceships looming in the sky set to wreak havoc on humanity? Check. Jeff Freaking Goldblum cracking wise on the damn moon? Check. Will Smith punching out aliens?

“I spent 20 years trying to get us ready for this,” Goldblum says. “We used their technology to strengthen our planet. But it won’t be enough.”
The film, which is out June 24th, finds director Roland Emerich returning to the helm of his 1996 hit, and stars Vivica A. Fox, Liam Hemsworth, Jessie Usher, Maika Monroe, Judd Hirsch, Sela Ward and Charlotte Gainsbourgwill.
