Cinema – Independence Day: Resurgence (15)
It’s 20 years since Earth was last devastated by a July 4th alien invasion and the plucky planet has managed to rebuild itself, complete with a massive new defensive apparatus. The intergalactic invaders are back, though, having received a distress signal from the vessels lost last time around. With Will Smith no longer on the job, it’s left to Liam Hemsworth – who was orphaned in the first attack – to save everyone. Expect effects galore.
In cinemas from July 7
