Brent Spiner is back as the wacky Dr. Okun in this summer's alien thriller sequel, "Independence Day: Resurgence." Believed to be dead in the first "Independence Day," Okun is clearly alive and experimenting on aliens again. In this new clip, Dr. Okun has recovered his dangerous and experimental "Okun Laser" from storage.
A new trailer and poster also debuted this week, featuring outer space dogfights, welcome back signs, and the President's daughter asking her boyfriend to "make them pay."
We always knew they were coming back. After INDEPENDENCE DAY redefined the event movie genre, the next epic chapter delivers global spectacle on an unimaginable scale. Using recovered alien technology, the nations of Earth have collaborated on an immense defense program to protect the planet. But nothing can prepare us for the aliens’ advanced and unprecedented force. Only the ingenuity of a few brave men and women can bring our world back from the brink of extinction.
"Independence Day: Resurgence" stars Liam Hemsworth, Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, Vivica A. Fox, Brent Spiner, Charlotte Gainsbourg, and is directed by Roland Emmerich. The film opens in theaters on June 24.
