Trivia

According to an article by Sanyukta Iyer published in 'The Mumbai Mirror' published on 20th June 2016, "keeping the sensitivities of all the religious groups and other activists in mind, the makers were asked to not shoot in India or portray any prominent monuments being damaged," reveals a source from the 20th Century Fox, the producers of the film. So while the next installment delivers global catastrophe on an unprecedented scale, India won't figure in the film which is set to hit screens on June 24 worldwide. When Mirror got in touch with a spokesperson of the company's Indian subsidiary, Fox Star Studios, they confirmed the news, pointing out that this was an internal decision that was agreed upon owing to several policy makers that reject such requests. 'There was also a request to only represent India on one of the film's posters, by showing an attack on the Taj Mahal. But this too was rejected,' the source added." See more »

I'm sorry, but this movie is complete garbage!
4 July 2016 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

I was looking very much forward to it, since I'm a fan of the original (nostalgia based). 15 minutes into the movie I just knew it was going to be bad.

Made by the same director that made the movie 2012, it has the same terrible drama and completely transparent storyline. I'm not even sure if there even is a storyline to this movie.

The worst part, aside from all the crying scenes based upon long distance relationships, unresolved father issues and what not, was in fact that the aliens are more primitive than us.

You would think that a race with such insane technology have evolved beyond petty and shortsighted impulse driven emotions. It's when you realize that the Queen of the aliens suddenly gets a personal vendetta against a yellow school bus while fighter planes are bombarding her, that the manuscript was written in half an hour in a coffee shop.

I really went into this with open eyes and was completely set for loving it, but no. The movie is just pure garbage. I'm sorry...
