Banagher & Full Frontal comment on alien invasion

IGN be hatin’ on America 'coz of how cool we are, always having to save the day :smile:

I can understand why they “Pepper Potts’d” Will Smith’s character, but it would’ve been kinda cool if Adam Baldwin had returned as well.

It looks kinda fun but I’ll probably save Resurgence for home viewing.

Franchise? To borrow from Zoidberg: “When did this happen?!”

Assuming it really becomes a franchise, I hope it goes away from Emmerich as he has transformed into fellow German filmmaker Uwe Boll…has anyone seen the two of them in the same room together lately? :wink:
