Watch: Bud Light Super Bowl Commercial Featuring Seth Rogen & Ant-Man’s Paul Rudd and Michael Pena

Check out the Bud Light Super Bowl commercial above featuring Seth Rogen and Amy Schumer as well as Ant-Man’s Paul Rudd and Michael Peña. The spot also references Independence Day.

America. They say we’re a nation divided. They say we disagree on everything. But they’re wrong. We agree on a lot. Like liberty. Justice. Three-day weekends. Funny t-shirts. Jeans. Free parking. Burritos. Sliding on hardwood floors in socks. Cat videos. And beer. Nothing brings America together like Bud Light. That’s why we formed the Bud Light Party. A party for everyone: man or woman, liberal or conservative, Broncos or Panthers fan. We don’t care about labels. Beer should have labels, not people. We’re not stuck in the past. We’re unstuck in the present. We are the fake political party America needs right now. Because no matter where we all stand on the issues, we all sit on bar stools. America has seen the light. And there’s a Bud in front of it.

Independence Day: Resurgence Reveals What Happened To Will Smith

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:23287:]]

By now, we all know that Will Smith is not returning for Independence Day: Resurgence.

Smith played the lead character in the 1996 film with Captain Steven Hiller.

Now with the release of the new Independence Day: Resurgence trailer and War of 1996 viral site, it’s not only learned that Smith’s Hiller received a promotion — but that Will Smith and Hiller will not be returning for any more sequels.

Will Smith’s Colonel Hiller has been killed off as the character died in an alien-tech malfunction.

Both the trailer and viral site revealed mankind has taken the alien tech as their own and used it as an upgrade, where we see Hiller has been killed off as a result of experimenting with the tech.

The date of Hiller’s death: April 27, 2007.

While test piloting the ESD’s first alien hybrid fighter, an unknown malfunction causes the untimely death of Col. Hiller. Hiller’s valor in the War of 96 made him a beloved global icon whose selfless assault against the alien mothership lead directly to the enemy’s defeat. He is survived by his wife Jasmine and son Dylan. 

Independence Day: Resurgence has a June 24, 2016 release directed by Rolan Emmerich starring Liam Hemsworth, Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, Vivica A. Fox, Brent Spiner, Angelababy, Maika Monroe, Sela Ward, and Jessie Usher.

Synopsis:

We always knew they were coming back. After INDEPENDENCE DAY redefined the event movie genre, the next epic chapter delivers global spectacle 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.
