When the film Independence Day was released it grossed a total of about $800 million worldwide, I think the idea of re-releasing it in 3-D was probably because of how Fox made $344 million at the box office globally after re-releasing Titanic in 3-D.
Independence Day for those who don’t know, is a film about an alien invasion of the planet Earth. It’s focused on a group of people and families that are in the Nevada desert and the other human beings inhabiting Earth, as they take their last stand to fight to protect their world. In the film Will Smith plays as Captain Steve Hiller who’s a Marine pilot, that is more of the protagonist of the film.
In my opinion I don’t really think this movie deserves to be re-released in 3-D all that much, don’t get me wrong it’s an alright film but I just don’t think it’s worthy enough for this kind of treatment. I would have preferred to see the The Lord of the Rings films being re-released in theatres before The Hobbit released, that would make me extremely happy.
