The Premise: Twenty years after the events of the first film, the international community recovers and builds up Earth’s defenses using technology salvaged from remains of the alien forces. However, the aliens were able to send a distress signal before their final defeat, which results in a new task force of alien ships coming to Earth and threatening the human race once more.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Hey I loved the first one and wondered if we were ever going to see a second chapter and how it would even manage to play out and this seems like they have a bombastic presentation to give us. Based on the next few weeks of events in my own world of media to do list I am not too sure I’m seeing it in the theaters though all that quickly and definitely not today. If you don’t mind spoilers you can click the official Wiki link below because since the film has opened it will give you the whole story from front to back. Those interested in seeing the film soon should not do that. So tell me, will you be seeing this film? Let me know in the comments section and if you do comment please don’t post spoilers.
