Independence Day

July 24, 2021


When powerful aliens launch an all-out invasion, the world’s only hope is a disparate ensemble of heroes who band together to defeat the alien invaders that are bent on exterminating mankind. The survivors devise a plan and July 4th becomes the day humanity fights back for its freedom.
