HOLLYWOOD – New Roland Emmerich Science Fiction drama Independence Day: Regurgitation has changed its name to Independence Day: Resurgence.
Independence Day Star Jeff Goldblum announced that the filmmakers of Independence Day had changed the name of the blockbuster only weeks before the release. ‘It’s definitely a better name,’ said Brundlefly, as he prefers to be known. ‘The other name was…. how can I say? Vomity?’
The Stonewall and Anonymous director Emmerich, however, tried to explain the logic of the original choice:
We wanted Independence Day: Regurgitation to be a sequel that knew it was a sequel. A postmodern ironic romp and so the title was part of that. A poke at the culture of excessive repetition. But the studio felt it was too on the nose.
The movie will tell the tale of aliens invading the world and destroying major landmarks as part of their plan to ruin the international tourist industry.
