Singapore skyline 'destroyed' in trailer for movie Independence Day: Resurgence

Marina Bay Sands topples as familiar skyscrapers crumble in a cloud of dust and rubble.

It lasts about three seconds but sharp-eyed viewers spotted Singapore's skyline in a new trailer for disaster movie Independence Day: Resurgence that was launched at the SuperBowl on Sunday (Feb 7).

Later on in the trailer, London suffers similar devastation.

The movie, to be screened in June, stars Liam Hemsworth, and Maika Monroe. Jeff Goldblum reprises his role as computer genius David Levinson in this sequel to the 1996 movie Independence Day.

The plot for the new movie takes place two decades after the first invasion and the Earth must face a new alien threat.

Singaporean actor Chin Han is also in the movie as Jiang Lao, the leader of the Chinese Space Squadron.

Director Roland Emmerich returns to helm this sequel.
