The Licensing Expo is currently taking place in Las Vegas, and while that might not sound very exciting, it is giving us first looks at a lot of promotional material from numerous studio’s upcoming projects. Remember when we brought you the first synopsis of Roland Emmerich’s follow-up film to Independence Day? The one that promised us pissed-off aliens and an Earth on the brink of destruction? Yeah, well apparently Fox’s marketing department picked up that idea and ran with it for this promotional art.

As a reminder/teaser, here’s the official synopsis for the sequel, which explains a bit of what’s going on in the first look at Independence Day 2‘s promotional art:

After Independence Day redefined the event movie genre, the next epic chapter delivers global catastrophe 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.

So either the aliens have returned to suck up all of humanity through that pretty light beam (not likely) or they’re back with a vengeance and have brought along their powerful world-destroying ship to punch a hole straight through to Earth’s core. Something tells me we’re going to need more than a clever hacker and a smart-ass pilot to bring that sucker down.

Opening in theaters on June 24, 2016, Independence Day 2 stars Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Liam Hemsworth, Maika Monroe, Jessie Usher, Joey King, Sela Ward, Brett Spiner, Vivica A. Fox,William Fichtner, Charlotte Gainsbourg, and Judd Hirsch.
