On July 2nd the world receives news of extraterrestrials approaching earth with jubilation. But it's only a matter of short time before they realize that these aliens do not come in peace. The destruction begins in earnest as the 'mother ship' unloads 36 smaller fighter ships that begin the mayhem that sees most of the world's major cities destroyed.

David Levinson (Jeff Goldblum) wants to warn the President to what he suspected were attack strategies being transmitted by the aliens. USMC Captain Steve Hiller (Will Smith) in the meantime, manages to lure an alien spaceship and recover the pilot and drags him across the desert, finally reaching Area 51. There they discover the aliens' plans and coordinate an attack the next day against the space invaders- creating an Independence Day for all mankind...
