The Razzies are a tough award show to love. Oh, I’m sure plenty of people probably read the headline to this article and — depending on their opinion of both Dinesh D’Souza and the DC Cinematic Universe — found great comfort in the public mockery of Hillary’s America and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. But while awards shows in general might serve the noble purpose of raising awareness about powerful films, the annual Razzies Awards often feel like you’re kicking someone when they’re already down.

When Bill Pullman dumped that big “We will not go quietly into the night!” speech at the end of Independence Day, he really wasn’t kidding. Even though Will Smith will not return, Independence Day 2 is still moving forward, like an enormous alien spaceship slowly approaching the Golden Gate Bridge.

The last time director Roland Emmerich talked about 'Independence Day 2,' original franchise star Will Smith was not going to be involved. At all. He was "too expensive," a "marquee name" who would be "too much." But a few months (and some time to think about the bomb that was 'After Earth') can make all the difference in the world -- it looks like Smith may end up jo
Roland Emmerich may be on his press tour for 'White House Down,' but he can't stop talking about ‘Independence Day 2.’ He already broke the news that Will Smith won't be returning, but now for some good news: Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman will be back to battle aliens.
Will Smith protecting the earth from aliens seems like a no-brainer, but not so fast, says director Roland Emmerich -- it looks like the summer blockbuster star won't be returning for 'Independence Day 2.'
Fox has begun slot-calling their summer schedule for the next two years, which makes them conservative compared to Marvel and Sony. 'Independence Day 2' has officially been dated for July 3, 2015, among other changes and updates to their schedule.
I have to say that some days I wonder if patriotism is alive or not. Just watching the news these days you would think all of our pride, liberties, freedoms and patriotism seem to be going away fast.
