The sequel to Roland Emmerich’s 1996 blockbuster Independence Day will now release on July 1, 2016, almost exactly 20 years after the original movie hit the screens. 20th Century Fox had earlier thought of releasing the sequel on July 3, 2015, but the date has now been pushed to July 1, 2016, reported a website.

Along with Independence Day 2, three other movies were also pushed back- Josh Trank‘s Fantastic Four reboot, Matthew Vaughn‘s The Secret Service and Michael Fassbender‘s Assassin’s Creed.
