About the Movie

Independence Day is an edge-of-your-seat Oscar winner for Best Visual Effects. When aliens in enormous spacecraft suddenly appear in Earth's atmosphere and start blowing things up, it falls to a cocky pilot (Will Smith) and a brilliant scientist (Jeff Goldblum) to save the planet from total destruction. Bill Pullman co-stars as the gung-ho president who urges his citizens to fight back.
