The long awaited sequel to Roland Emmerich's Independence Day has been given a release date by Fox. The Hollywood Reporter broke the news.
“20th Century Fox announced Thursday, June 20, that Independence Day 2 will open on July 3, 2015, the eve of the lucrative holiday that drove 1996's Independence Day to a stellar $50 million debut. Emmerich will return to direct and produce, but none of the original cast -- including lead Will Smith -- has been announced as returning as of yet”. - THR
Now all this is great for ID4 fans, however Fox has now shuffled around a few other release dates. Here are the new releases dates for the big Fox releases including the X-Men and Planet of the Apes sequels.
Peregrine's Home for Peculiars is set for July 31, 2015.
The Plot: The story follows a teenage boy who is transported to an island where he must help protect a group of orphans with special powers from creatures out to destroy them.
X-Men: Days of Future Past is now May 23, 2014. It flipped release dates with Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, which is now July 18, 2014.
Assassin's Creed, starring Michael Fassbender, has now moved back a month May 22, 2015, to June 19, 2015. This change in release is due to the release of Star Wars Episode VII, which could be slated for that very same week.
