The promo wheels behind Independence Day: Resurgence are in full motion with the stars and director of the blockbuster hitting Sydney to promote the film. Liam Hemsworth, Jeff Goldblum and Roland Emmerich arrived in the capital of New South Wales and posed in front of the iconic Sydney Opera House for their first stop on their press tour (check out the gallery below).
The trio couldn’t pick a better spot in Australia for their photo call seeing how Emmerich loves to destroy iconic monuments in his films. Rest assured, Independence Day: Resurgence will have plenty of that, judging by the trailers and recent city-centric promo posters.
According to the early synopsis release, the sequel will showcase an Alien spaceship that’s a super-structure of unfathomable size, and has a gravitational pull that wreaks havoc with the entire planet. The ship ignites an incendiary cloud that stretches across the sky, plunging the city of Singapore into darkness before everything—everything!—lifts off the ground and is sucked into an orgy of destruction.
Another city, Dubai, literally falls on Paris, as the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa Tower, disintegrates floor after floor of the Eiffel Tower. Then a giant Buddha rips through Big Ben, as London’s Ferris Wheel comes crashing into the Thames.
