The long awaited sequel to Independence Day – INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE is out this weekend! It’s been 20 years since the original, and I can’t wait to see it! I love movies about alien invasions and love watching all the extraterrestrial destruction, but there’s one thing that’s always bothered me about these movies: HOW COME THE ALIENS NEVER INVADE CANADA?!
It’s a serious question! We see tons of big cities and landmarks destroyed in the Independence Day films, from the White House and the Empire State Building – to international locations like Big Ben in London, but we never see Canada! We even have our own awesome landmark – the CN Tower – to destroy in the movies! I’m not saying I would love to see Toronto destroyed by aliens, but it would most definitely look badass on film! I believe in equal opportunity alien destruction! It’s even logical that the aliens would invade Canada, because they’re after natural resources and we got them all in our fair country, so if they make an Independence Day 3 I vote that Canada be one of the countries included in the alien devastation!
Are you going to see Independence Day: Resurgence this weekend?
