INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE is a sci-fi action sequel in which, twenty years after the first invasion, aliens attack Earth once again.

Threat

Large-scale alien attacks result in a variety of disasters, including cities being destroyed, with implied but undetailed loss of lives. There are also more personalised moments of threat as aliens wrap tentacles around people's necks, resulting in injury or death; some of these moments are a little scary, but they are not frequent or sustained.

Violence

There are scenes of moderate action violence, including aerial dogfights between human and alien craft, which result in large scale explosions, as well as the use of fantastical weapons which shoot lasers.

Language

There is a use of moderate bad language ('bitch'). Milder bad language includes 'shit', 'God', 'Christ', 'hell', 'damn', 'Jesus', 'butt', 'son of a bitch' and 'ass'.

There is a mild sex reference when a boy says that his school bus teacher abandoned him to "go have sex with his girlfriend".
