The time has finally come! Twenty years in the making, Independence Day: Resurgence arrives in theaters. This sequel to one of the biggest hit films of the 1990’s, and also one of the most influential, is here with a lot less fanfare than the original. I remember standing in long lines to get tickets to Independence Day. That was long before online ordering of tickets. The wait, the anticipation.. wow! It was grand.

This one, not so much. Reviews have been overall favorable, but the box office has not been exactly stellar. To date, only $60 million in America, while foreign totals bring the total take to $176 million. Not too great for a $165 million movie.
