[[wysiwyg_imageupload:23287:]]

While we won’t see it in the movie, a viral site has revealed the fate of Will Smith’s character for Independence Day: Resurgence, which turns out that Captain Steven Hiller died back in 2007.

Now Will Smith comments on the death of Hiller with Yahoo:

“I was working on Suicide Squad during that time. [Independence Day director] Roland [Emmerich] and I had talked about it. The trailer looks really cool. I’m going to be sitting around with tears in my eyes when that one comes out… It was terrible when I found out my character died.” 

Will Smith is currently starring in Concussion, and Suicide Squad hits next August 5th.

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.

Exclusive Deadpool Trailer Attached To Star Wars: The Force Awakens

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:23261:]]

Deadpool trailer will be shown in front of Star Wars: The Force Awakens next Friday on IMAX. 

Update: According to Alberta Film Ratings, the Deadpool IMAX trailer will be 27 seconds long. In addition, two new Deadpool trailers are listed (which may be a PG-13 and a Red-Band version) coming in at 2 minutes and 24 seconds.

A user on Reddit who works at a movie theater posted a picture of the box that contains the Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie where listed are the following trailers:

Batman Vs. Superman
Captain America: Civil War
Deadpool
Independence Day: Resurgence
Jungle Book
Warcraft

Note: The Deadpool trailer may be new as it appears to be an IMAX 2D exclusive.

It was thought Fox was going with the X-Men: Apocalypse trailer (perhaps in different screenings for the Force Awakens?), but we see from the image some sort of Deadpool (assuming a non-Red-Band version) will be featured on IMAX.

You can watch the latest Deadpool trailer below.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens Friday, December 18th, with advance screenings kicking off Thursday night.

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:23260:]]

“Deadpool” has a February 12, 2016 release directed by Tim Miller starring Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, TJ Miller as Weasel, Gina Carano as Angel Dust, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Morena Baccarin as Copycat and Ed Skrein as Ajax.
