Independence Day is one of the greatest, classic movies to watch when celebrating the 4th Of July. Many hoped there would have been a sequel, but Dean Devlin stated:

As for Independence Day, we never intended to do any films in that series beyond the first one. Many years ago, I was actually hired to write the sequel to Independence Day. And I wrote a sequel. And they paid me a boatload of money to go write this thing. And after I wrote it, I read it and I gave them back the money and I said, ‘Look, this is an okay movie I just wrote. But it’s not worthy of the sequel to Independence Day.

So, for those of you hoping for an Independence Day 2, it looks like you’ll just have to stick with the original. Let’s celebrate the film by checking out the top 10 best quotes from the movie below.


1. “Mankind.” That word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can’t be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests. Perhaps it’s fate that today is the Fourth of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom… Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution… but from annihilation. We are fighting for our right to live. To exist. And should we win the day, the Fourth of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day the world declared in one voice: “We will not go quietly into the night!” We will not vanish without a fight! We’re going to live on! We’re going to survive! Today we celebrate our Independence Day!
– President Thomas Whitmore
