MAJOR SPOILERS: Why Independence Day: Resurgence Won\’t Screen Early

||

idr-resurgence-trailer-2Earlier we let you know how Fox won’t be doing advanced screenings for Independence Day: Resurgence. Now the reason for that has leaked out, and it does have to do with spoilers.

While the movie has not screened anywhere, the movie’s novelization has leaked out. Now, these books always have scenes that don’t end up in the movie as they’re based on the screenplay and not the final film. However, the basic story is in there including the ending and all of the major twists and revelations in the movie.

Back in February, after the Super Bowl spot aired, I speculated that a third Independence Day installment could see the humans going into space and taking the fight to the aliens. If Fox does do a third one, that’s exactly what we’ll see.

The sequel basically ends with a big tease of that third movie. Humans who now have interstellar travel decide to go into space and lead a resistance army of other alien races to defeat the evil aliens once and for all. It’s an amazingly epic idea for a third movie, but its fate will depend on how well this movie does. Remember, they originally wanted to do two Independence Day sequels back to back, titled ID Forever Parts 1 and 2. So an idea for a trilogy was always there. And Resurgence leaves the breadcrumbs for the final movie in the trilogy.

There is a death in the movie, however it’s doubtful Fox is worried about that leaking out. The “Empire Strikes Back” ending that leads into an epic third movie is the bigger spoiler that they want to keep under wraps. Hopefully they do the sequel pretty quickly so we don’t have to wait another twenty years for the big finale…
