Are they really going to reuse Bill Pullman's speech verbatim in Independence Day 2?
Yes, it's a spectacular movie scene. But, you can't just recycle a 20-year old speech and play it off like it's naturally happening again. The people are never go to buy that, and the alien invasion is totally going to be successful the second time around because the citizens of Earth just won't be as hyped up to defend themselves as they were the first time.
So, memo to Independence Day Resurgence, hopefully the speech is either just in the trailer, or when they recycle it in the movie they reference its first time around and incorporate that into the plot in a way that makes sense. I'm extremely skeptical though.
Also, in case you're interested, here's the ID2 trailer mashed up with the new Star Wars trailer. Pretty cool:
