Exclusive Preview | The Art & Making of Independence Day: Resurgence

We always knew that the aliens from Independence Day would be back, but it was pretty convenient that they showed up exactly 20 years later! The second wave arrived in Independence Day: Resurgence, as the invaders went up against a unified humanity sublimated by alien tech…and it wasn’t enough to prevent the onslaught. 

This week, Titan Books has released The Art & Making of Independence Day: Resurgence, a new chronicle that goes back to the War of 96 to depict the aftermath of the first invasion, the restoration of the planet through alien technology, and the devastating attacks depicted in the film with pages and photos dedicated to the design and schematics of the alien ships, the hybrid fighters, the weapons, creatures, and everything else.   

Titan Books has provided CraveOnline with an exclusive look inside of the book, along with the descriptions that go along with each picture.
