A couple new Independence Day: Resurgence trailers have hit the web and offer a much better look at the film's antagonist - the dreaded Alien Queen! That's right, the Independence Day aliens, like Ridley Scott and James Cameron's Xenomorphs, have a Queen! This behemoth of a matriarch is unleashed on Earth at some point throughout the film, but we're unsure of when exactly this takes place and why she decides to leave the safety of her Mother Ship... However, below we've listed off what we do know so far.
A couple things we have learned about the Queen so far - she is BIG! Nearly 10 times the size of her soldiers, she wrecks havoc on Earth's Defenses, throwing military trucks around like rag dolls and crushing tanks in her path. Through screenshots we've taken from these trailers, we know she has at least one, possibly two powerful claw-like limbs, which act as battering rams.
Judging by her exterior, we've also learned that this is likely a bio-suit, like the other, more recognizable ET's from the first Independence Day! This would mean that underneath the tough armor, is a more fragile Alien Queen (though still massive in size and likely very dangerous).
Independence Day: Resurgence hits theaters in 21 days, on June 24th, 2016 in IMAX 3D and 2D! Be sure to also contact your local IMAX theater to see if they're giving out these exclusive IDR posters on opening night!
