The War of 1996 | A United World News Special


  1. Matthew Hamilton on May 27, 2016 at 1:53 pm

    Must see movie.

  2. MrBisketTV on May 27, 2016 at 1:22 pm

    This a live action RoboTec movie lol????

  3. Shawn Khokher on May 27, 2016 at 1:18 pm

    I was born in December of 1996 so for all I know Independence Day could
    very well be the lost history of the world. Can’t wait for the new one!

  4. ajdiddie on May 27, 2016 at 8:15 am

    Why didn’t they make a star destroyer with the anti gravity technology

  5. Sir Robert Johnson on May 27, 2016 at 2:59 am

    Is this real? Hard to tell. But I don’t really remember a war in 1996.

  6. _ Mechros _ on May 26, 2016 at 10:35 pm

    Oh I remember 1996.

    Tupac died D,:

  7. SilentWingsOfFreedom on May 26, 2016 at 6:23 am

    I for one welcome back our alien overlords! If they want, I can help them
    round up other humans to force to work on their new weapons systems.

  8. nixtblack on May 25, 2016 at 5:39 pm

    wow this is so tacky!

  9. Kenny Tee on May 25, 2016 at 3:26 pm

    The true alien on our planet is Jeff Goldblum…mmmm-a-yes

  10. M. Volgrand on May 25, 2016 at 8:50 am

    I don’t know if the movie will be half as good as the first one. But I must
    say that the advertisement campaign they have done is goddamn AWESOME! The
    webpage, the story told in a documentary way, how the world has changed,
    the integration of alien tech… It is SUCH a great job, and only for this
    I will so be in the cinema the very day of the release!

  11. Rob White on May 25, 2016 at 8:26 am

    nice extras to get us hyped cant wait

  12. Michael Brown on May 25, 2016 at 6:50 am

    What made Independence Day good was JG and WS. I was hyped at the beginning
    of this trailer but without WS I don’t think I will enjoy it as much..

  13. javier baron on May 25, 2016 at 6:41 am

    UWN is another word for NWO and mankind enslavement. Just look how these
    bastards are pushing the NWO agenda. A alien attack,…. please, what bs.
    There’s no aliens or UFOS. The secret societies ( elites ) are behind on it
    all. They will create an alien attack, just like all the presidents from
    Reagan to Obama have been pushing in their UN speeches.

    Search ” operation Blue Beam”. The gov. is 20-30 years ahead of anything we
    know exist today in technology. Can’t you all see,….. They’re going to
    use this technology against us! I recommend watching the 1988 movie “They
    Live ” to get a good idea what’s in store for us all. One World Religion,
    One World Government ( NWO )

    Remember, the aliens is the gov. ( elites ) themselves.

  14. solongsucka on May 24, 2016 at 10:57 pm

    Where are the Indians? Only the second most populous country in the world
    and the second largest army.

  15. TheFearlessDave on May 24, 2016 at 8:17 pm

    They built all that in 20 years?
    …with all that advancements, I bet Apple just made their iPhone a little

  16. FeroxX on May 24, 2016 at 6:52 pm

    This movie will be my childhood wet dream! I was 8 years old when I ve seen
    the first one in the theatre and I effin loved it, now Im 27, but this will
    be the blockbuster of this summer for me I can feel it 🙂

    Of course it was somewhat silly, over the top, and got that murica” vibe to
    it, but neverthless the first one is still an awesome movie, and this new
    one just looks more serious and well thought out which I welcome very much.

  17. Guts Likes It In The Ass on May 24, 2016 at 3:18 pm

    Bush did 1996. The alien invasion was an inside job. Alien plasma can’t
    melt Earth minerals

  18. SuperDeluxe80 on May 24, 2016 at 11:59 am

    fight aliens with there atleat 20 year old tech.

  19. 714RockStarJohnny04 on May 24, 2016 at 8:37 am

    don’t take it to seriously people, its just a FUN summer movie

  20. scottieman2 on May 24, 2016 at 8:09 am

    I like when movies make these bonus material. Wish more movies do this.

  21. tghr182 on May 24, 2016 at 7:09 am

    Its the robotech saga

  22. Mohit Verma on May 24, 2016 at 4:59 am

    I like this propaganda style of marketing ….Star ship troopers style

  23. glennwih on May 24, 2016 at 3:07 am

    I’m really looking forward to this movie.

  24. Fenris30 on May 23, 2016 at 8:01 pm

    Hope they got shields on those planes.

  25. killviner 1876 on May 23, 2016 at 9:21 am

    If only this was real… Minus the alien part

  26. Sir Percival Paladin on May 23, 2016 at 7:09 am

    Good to say old faces are leading XCOM….I mean the ESD.

    But seriously, I predict mods for XCOM and Stellaris.

    I’m surprised the liberal marxist regressives didn’t squeeze the disarming
    of law abiding citizens by a global one world government into this piece.

    It’s the only thing standing in the way of the real plans for everyone.
    Disarming the folks who would defend liberty and give the sleeping lost
    ones a real chance to wake up and see what happens when the tyranny of a
    global elite start to really go to work on inalienable human rights. This
    is their ONLY pathway to a society crippled by the heavy chains to be
    forged of countless regressive laws which they seek. To turn back the clock
    to a time when if you lived it was only because they let you live.

    Say no to non common sense gun control. The founding fathers knew a militia
    of free people’s with at least a modicum of decent weaponry would be the
    only way to fight tyranny, and to refresh and renew the roots of liberty
    and freedom that are under legitimate and terrible threat today.

  31. James Marlon on May 22, 2016 at 11:34 am

    This is looking like Starship Troopers without the campy clever satire.

  32. BATMAN on May 22, 2016 at 7:12 am

    Flat Earthers are using this video as “PROOF” our Gov are creating a FAKE
    alien invasion to recruit people for the NWO. XD

  33. MyN0N4M3 on May 21, 2016 at 9:40 pm

    Now THIS is a Trailer! Good work

  34. KnightZ Plays & More on May 21, 2016 at 8:09 pm

    All this without Will Smith is worthless !!

    Telepathic aliens attack, now the world is united to use their tech and
    build a massive military to prepare for another attack.

    Somebody’s been reading Enders Game

  38. Jake Stutz on May 21, 2016 at 12:29 pm

    This is a bit cheesy

  39. The King Of Waffles on May 21, 2016 at 8:57 am

    First off the people that hated this trailer were probably alien
    sympathizers! Last of all…. Sony! Are you watching? This is how to do an
    honorable & beloved franchise movie! You stupid Sony dumbasses!

  40. mortaza yasen on May 21, 2016 at 7:24 am


  41. Maria Constanza on May 21, 2016 at 5:27 am

    Know they must have spammers that can irritate the aliens

  42. SabreFiveFour on May 21, 2016 at 5:25 am

    Let the brainwashing continue. So, we can use our ancient technology,
    combine it with that part of the advanced technology from ‘them’ that we
    can actually understand (even though THEY developed it, advanced it, etc.),
    and, in just 20 years, we’ll defeat them in a location, Earth, where we
    can’t leave, and where they can come and go as they please. USA – USA –
    USA. Give me a break. I wasn’t born last night, and I wasn’t born at night.

  43. Simon Su on May 20, 2016 at 3:29 pm

    Is this a movie?

  44. Seth Carlow on May 20, 2016 at 12:20 pm

    Awesome i am so looking forward to this movie.

  45. DoomPowerMetal on May 20, 2016 at 7:46 am

    These in-movie marketing skits remind me of Starship Troopers.

  46. jay pth on May 20, 2016 at 4:31 am

    funny if the aliens’ve seen these youtube trailer things,,they might think
    it’s better to eliminate these leaders before the invasion…if aliens
    invasion come true LOL!

  47. Zippcast is BETTER! on May 20, 2016 at 4:24 am

    year Mom got her cancer but I still went to watch this movie……:( with a

  48. Gault05 on May 20, 2016 at 2:49 am

    We thought we killed them all back in ’96. But those were just the
    babies[city destroyers] and the mother[Mothership]. Now, the father’s come,
    and this time, he’s got nothing to lose.

    Also, that city destroyer rubble at 3:30.

  49. Free Roam on May 20, 2016 at 12:44 am

    Dam i thought that i’m in future now, and watching news about “war”, so

  50. LibertyMan on May 19, 2016 at 9:21 pm

    this is quite the interesting marketing move by 20th Century.

  51. robotechmasters1999 on May 19, 2016 at 9:38 am

    now . . . replace all those jets with Veritechs

  52. MrNetrizhul on May 19, 2016 at 12:20 am

    So far I like to think that they included all world to world defense
    organization not just United States but I’m sure that we will see American
    patriotism in the end just like the first one.

  53. Steamforger on May 18, 2016 at 12:33 pm

    Never realised how much like Trump President Whitmore sounded haha

  54. Celedam on May 18, 2016 at 8:00 am

    0:05 So is that a VF-4 or a VF-19? I see parts of both…

    Great way to promote this film as well as give a sneak peak into the
    technology of the time…I’m very excited to see this movie, but I did
    question one part of this new movie, but it’s in a different trailer….dr.
    Okun was killed in the first movie, so how is he back in the second one?

  57. TranslatorsTroubles on May 17, 2016 at 3:30 pm

    I don’t think I’ve ever been this excited for a sequel

  62. Hisham 5% on May 17, 2016 at 4:50 am

    they preparing us mentally through these kind of movies
    the real alien invasion is coming no doubt

  63. megatroll on May 16, 2016 at 11:24 pm

    So basically:
    – War propaganda with America being the world’s saviour again
    – Demonising of political opposition by leaving them out of the
    – Race mixing between the white man/Asian woman and black man/white woman
    Yay! They got the full spectrum here! A film for the whole family!

    this is the future I dream every night. humanity puts aside there stupid
    wars and fights together ….. makes me tear up a little ?

  67. GUNVALKERIE on May 16, 2016 at 9:24 am

    If there is a 3rd movie (I WISH) it should be about recalling all ALIENs
    from every corner of the galaxy just to converge on one small planet that
    has resisted them for so long but instead of a big giant machine that
    covers the whole planet this machine itself would be the size of JUPITER a
    planet class machine… these ALIENs had centuries or at least millions of
    years to perfect their technology a technology that would last as seen in
    the first film… just saying

    There was this one commercial that was done under the disguise of an US
    Army commercial that flew over my head last week. The promotions for this
    movie is strong with this one.

  72. pkesseli on May 16, 2016 at 6:19 am

    Plot twist: ESD is a global fascist government. The aliens are still
    douches though.

  73. Starhunter Terra on May 16, 2016 at 6:18 am

    I love the marketing for he film, reminds me of Starship Troopers’
    federation Propaganda reports. UNFORTUNALLY, the Aliens saw the 20th.
    Anniversary reporting by the Humans and decided to give it another go with
    better and improve technology. Time to kick some Human Butt, right?, just
    to get even in Payback for the defeat of 1996.

  74. WaveForceful on May 16, 2016 at 5:40 am

    This is awesome, Imagine if we were this advanced in the first movie…but
    from what I’ve seen from the latest trailer, were still in for a struggle.

  75. GodFlamingchariot on May 16, 2016 at 4:29 am

    Well done

  76. cardiac19 on May 16, 2016 at 3:53 am

    Good job on marketing this movie!

  77. STDrepository on May 16, 2016 at 2:33 am

    They should get Donald Trump to play himself as president in this.

  78. Ken Pomegranate on May 16, 2016 at 1:58 am

    I am fairly sure this movie will be aweesome, and unless they add feminist
    themes too it I will definitely be paying to see it……
    but….honerestly….. it seems weird to have a sequel to Independence Day
    without Will Smith…… I know that on it’s own doesn’t make for a bad
    movie…. but I woulda liked to see Will Smith in the credits.

  79. artbytandy on May 16, 2016 at 1:20 am

    If Independence Day happened in real life idiots would say the war of 1996
    was an inside job.

  80. Chibi Levi on May 16, 2016 at 12:12 am

    I’m going to go and see this movie the day it comes out !!!!

  81. kab1r on May 15, 2016 at 10:30 pm

    would be cool if the aliens came back with Gundams

  82. MarcellusTheGreen on May 15, 2016 at 10:27 pm

    I, Conspiracy :

    This is actually all true and are bits of info being leaked, and the 1996
    incident is in reference to Jonathan Reed and The Phoneix lights, as well
    as the movie that inspired fire in the sky….all happened around that same


  85. lykan2 on May 15, 2016 at 1:37 am

    Would you like to know more?

  86. haidarym8 on May 14, 2016 at 10:32 pm

    Thar was so cheesy.
    Btw it was really obvious that the reporter wasnt actually near the jet lol

  87. Cabhan Listis on May 14, 2016 at 9:36 am

    We could no more recover alien technology than could people from tenth
    century England recover modern human technology in this way. They’re not
    going to put a catalytic converter on a chariot or figure out how to make
    extra bullets for a hand gun.

  88. osiris292 on May 13, 2016 at 10:46 pm

    love it! gave me chills watching it.

  89. Lew Bear on May 13, 2016 at 5:23 pm

    Love it when the commercials aren’t just snippets from the movie, but are
    separate little pieces to help make the world bigger – looking forward to

    wish you had captions for the hearing impaired!

  91. Tassadarky on May 13, 2016 at 3:31 am

    promotional material.

  95. Hugh Janus Productions on May 11, 2016 at 5:25 pm

    The aliens got their tech from old tech from the now gone First Order. They
    created their own faction, demolishing the New Republic, the Resistance,
    and the New Jedi Order. Then comes the War of 1996 decades after the war
    against the Republic, which lasted around a decade or two. With the last
    remnants of the Resistance gone after General Leia Organa has been killed
    in action at Coruscant, the aliens moved on to another galaxy, the Milky
    Way. Knowing that our planet had resources they need, they invaded, but
    lost the war of 96. Now, we can only hope the Second War on Humanity will
    be won by us.. May the Force be with us.

    We saw ID on it’s first screening at midnight. The theater manager came out
    on stage and addressed the audience. The last thing he said was “any
    requests?” Turn it up! He said OK. That theater was like being in a rock
    crusher, loud and proud. The audience was jumping up and down and bouncing
    off the walls. It was a helluva good time.

  108. knytrydr73 on May 10, 2016 at 2:03 am

    Crazy thing is, I think it really would take an alien invasion to get
    humanity to unite as one.

  109. Oscar Nicholson on May 10, 2016 at 1:23 am

    For those potentially interested in actually ET science and not the wacko
    stuff, SETI puts out seminars on YouTube that range from accessible to the
    highly technical.

  113. DeltaHardcore on May 9, 2016 at 9:41 pm

    So the aliens wanted our resources? And to achive this goal they waged war?
    Sounds like the USA to me :3

  114. DocHazard on May 9, 2016 at 6:51 pm

    Hmm, on an unrelated note, after watching the clips of how we built orbital
    defense satelites, bases on the moon, aircrafts capable of flying in space
    I suddenly feel the urge to conquer the galaxy for some reason!

  115. DarthMessias on May 9, 2016 at 6:34 pm

    This is like a commercial from the Command and Conquer games…

  116. dmed on May 9, 2016 at 4:48 pm

    This is so realistic. I can’t tell that it’s not real.

  117. Stephen Bachman on May 9, 2016 at 3:00 pm

    Aerodynamically having those odd shaped engines would be a hindrance to
    flying and Manovrabilty.

    as its a movie they look really cool.

  118. Ricky Wright on May 9, 2016 at 1:38 pm

    Looks like videos from an awesome Command&Conquer future game.

  122. Alberto Day on May 9, 2016 at 11:00 am

    idk if this is in the movies, reminds me of star ship troopers meets worse
    acting. I hope it’s better then this.

  123. Michael “Zastels” Mayea on May 9, 2016 at 10:55 am

    I love this type of marketing. An advertisement you want to watch.

  124. The Bacons (Yoda) on May 9, 2016 at 10:45 am

    So it’s Ender’s Game

  125. Alex Chang on May 9, 2016 at 9:36 am

    They used a shot from a typical Chinese college military training at 1:10

  126. Shining Star on May 9, 2016 at 9:30 am

    This movie is pandering to China. F that, not watching.

    So Humans did all that in just 20 years? No wonder the Aliens returned, if
    Humans had another century of advancement, it would Humans invading the
    Alien homeworld, oh wait, that’s called Enders Game :)

  129. Barry Almeria on May 9, 2016 at 8:30 am

    If all else fails.. Assemble the Avengers. Oh no wait, you can’t because
    half of them are criminals now. Good luck with that planet earth.

    Ahaha BORIS!!! @ 1:07

    Yet again a white guy gets the Asian girl, not the other way around

  132. 3DO! on May 9, 2016 at 6:06 am

    C’mon..the asian girl is only here for the show. She’s a model or somesort
    in real life.

  133. Michael Ferro on May 9, 2016 at 5:37 am

    Aren’t they making TWO sequels?

    Anyways, this was beautifully done. I love the intermixing of “news”
    footage with clips of the old film along with the new one. I especially
    love how they show the “reporter” standing in the launch bay, watching as
    the craft flies out of the bay, and it just smoothly transitions to the
    clip from the new film. Very well done!

  134. Rowan J Coleman on May 9, 2016 at 4:59 am

    The marketing for this movie is so good :)

    MUST SEE, CANT WAIT!!!!!anybody else get shivers watching this?

  137. Ксения Ковалевская on May 9, 2016 at 1:07 am

    Why do you Americans always have to make movies where you destroy
    everything? Can’t you make a nice peaceful movie?

  138. Jacob Hutchinson on May 9, 2016 at 12:50 am

    It’s so amazing with using alien technology to make Earth safer and
    stronger. I wish everything used with alien technology in this movie would
    be reality.

  139. romulan227 on May 8, 2016 at 11:02 pm

    Jeff Golblum is a caricature of himself

  140. MVA Agent on May 8, 2016 at 10:32 pm

    Steven Hiller, we need you because we cannot defeat the aliens without you!

    I was born two months after the War of 1996. Now in this Timeline, I woke
    up to a destroyed world but grew up in advanced era.

    Looks awesome, cant wait

    Then again this year will be The War of 2016

  145. Daps741 on May 8, 2016 at 12:56 pm

    feels like robotech/macross, minus the part where the jets transform into
    mobile suits.

  146. AlbertaGamer on May 8, 2016 at 11:27 am

    WAIT A MINUTE – you mean this ACTUALLY happened? O.O

  147. tubagus alpha on May 8, 2016 at 10:50 am

    it is a prequel to robotech macross :-D

    I bet even when aliens attack humans will still fight each other.

    i Hate CGI :(

  151. Greg Cowan on May 8, 2016 at 3:18 am

    A disappointment

  153. Thomas Ruston on May 7, 2016 at 10:29 pm

    What an imaginative way to advertise a film

  154. XypherVG on May 7, 2016 at 9:03 pm

    Those fighters look like Valkyries from Macross

  155. Cubejam on May 7, 2016 at 6:56 pm

    The CGI in this movie is actually worse looking than the original!

  156. K31TH3R on May 7, 2016 at 6:15 pm

    I’m totally on board. Would’ve been more on board if Will Smith returned,
    but still very much on board. Independence Day was from a bygone era where
    movies weren’t taking themselves so seriously. Hopefully this movie is in
    the same vain. Not quite to the point of Starship Troopers where it was
    mostly awesomely framed satire, but enough to be “fun.”

  157. Andrew Kuharevicz on May 7, 2016 at 6:05 pm

    Looks terrible

  158. Mitchell Dickinson on May 7, 2016 at 4:22 pm

    I am so happy this movie is being made. But, if you’re going to do this, at
    least take a few pointers from the “Halo: Believe” Campaign. I “believed”
    those actors. Levinson’s speech wasn’t even corny, it just sounded like
    Goldblum hadn’t reviewed his lines till they put him in front of the

  159. fledwest on May 7, 2016 at 1:33 pm

    So I get the movie came out in 1996 but wouldn’t something global of that
    magnitude be called something else? War of 1996? Should be like “Earth War”
    or something bigger.

  160. Panoz Abruzzi on May 7, 2016 at 12:45 pm

    ah ohhh dah biggest boom boom

  161. Rimasta1 on May 7, 2016 at 12:26 pm

    Well here is the problem, the human strategy is defensive. “He who stays
    inside his defenses is defeated.” Sun Tzu

    The best way to stop the Aliens, is find where they live and destroy them
    or dictate terms of peace to them. After al, the best defense is a good

  162. Agent Hunk on May 7, 2016 at 11:27 am

    Imperial Star Destroyers and the SSD Executor will handle that ship.

    Huh, didn’t know the had orbital rays too.

  165. Vincent Ernst on May 7, 2016 at 3:56 am

    of course the us is at the front of everything, ridiculous.

  166. Jack Dove on May 7, 2016 at 3:52 am

    Who are the other world leaders at 1:07, besides US president Tom Whitmore
    and UK PM Tony Blair?

  167. TheShutteredRoom on May 7, 2016 at 2:44 am

    How the hell did Seth Brundle survived his transformation and is now the
    director of the ESD?

  168. Nair Haile on May 7, 2016 at 2:40 am

    our independence day

  169. mrwong11989 on May 7, 2016 at 2:18 am

    I can’t wait to see this movie

  170. JinLost01 on May 7, 2016 at 1:19 am

    this kind of commercials reminds me of the terran from starcraft.

  171. Gregor Barclay on May 7, 2016 at 1:18 am

    Fingers crossed this isn’t a repeat of Prometheus, where the fun
    pre-release material was better than the actual movie…

  172. Lucas Riddle on May 7, 2016 at 1:11 am

    okay i was not looking forward to this movie, But after that i have to say
    it is a must see now. Looks like it will be a great movie.

  173. Gabriel Hoffman on May 7, 2016 at 12:28 am

    Sorry haters, this is a MARVEL! Well done FOX!

  174. Daniel Plainview on May 7, 2016 at 12:24 am

    it’s right in front of you

  175. timefilm on May 7, 2016 at 12:21 am

    I love this. They had these news reports for Id4 back in 1996.

  176. fitzdraco on May 7, 2016 at 12:21 am

    If this follows the American independence we are about to get our asses
    kicked by Canadian Aliens.

  177. FuzzzWuzzz on May 7, 2016 at 12:06 am

    It’s disappointing that there was a war of that magnitude, andnobody could
    come up with a better name for it.
    Hold on, they actually let Tony Blair into a world peace alliance? HA HA

  178. Wings 'o Wax on May 6, 2016 at 11:03 pm

    And now, a special message from the Advent Coalition.

  179. Michael Cachia on May 6, 2016 at 10:58 pm

    Isn’t this globalism?

  180. Daniel Peckett on May 6, 2016 at 8:16 pm

    I think we should call The Avengers

  181. Scwurt on May 6, 2016 at 11:05 am

    and in twenty more years, the aliens will come back in biggerer ships. . .

  182. hardwirecars on May 6, 2016 at 8:34 am


  183. Hodor on May 6, 2016 at 6:29 am

    earth is flat, there is no such thing as aliens, stop making propaganda
    movies and scaring the sheeps.

  184. Brendan McCallion on May 6, 2016 at 4:18 am

    No mention of Russel’s sacrifice? Come on. There is no justice in this new

  185. Silversurfer on May 5, 2016 at 4:07 pm

    I didn’t see the Swedish flag; I guess we wanted to be neutral in this
    conflict too! Meh

  186. Brian Kibet on May 5, 2016 at 8:07 am

    I thought it was Donald Trump’s voice at first

  187. david kozat on May 5, 2016 at 1:28 am

    Fake green screen is fake…

  188. John Smith on May 4, 2016 at 4:48 am

    so Independence Day is a prequel to Star Wars

  189. Pinnie Dizzie on May 4, 2016 at 3:37 am

    Independence day resurgence looks better than all the superhero trash
    coming out this year

  190. Turbine68 on May 4, 2016 at 1:27 am

    I remember where I was on July 2 of 1996 and on July 4 when we fought for
    our Independence.

  191. SlowMotion on May 4, 2016 at 12:45 am

    so it takes an alien invasion to bring all of us to work together huh.

  192. Sabino Rodriguez on May 4, 2016 at 12:42 am

    They should have a separate video about the aliens but it’s just silent
    because they are telepathic

  193. Geert Matthys on May 3, 2016 at 11:39 pm

    Build a wall to stop aliens!

  194. Xenial Xerus on May 3, 2016 at 11:36 pm

    This literally looks like a movie made by a chinese government – e.g.
    creatively oppressed and not fun to anyone except the government slaves.

  195. Bryce P-Stevenson on May 3, 2016 at 11:13 pm

    I’m actually kinda looking forward to this movie. I love when humans have
    somewhat of a fighting chance.
