This Homemade INDEPENDENCE DAY Trailer is Almost as Good as the Real Thing

This Homemade INDEPENDENCE DAY Trailer is Almost as Good as the Real Thing

If you celebrate the 4th of July, we hope you’re out and about eating and drinking too much at barbecues and readying yourselves for fireworks extravaganzas. However, if weather, work, or other plans have you stuck inside, then we hope you’re taking part in the true highlight of July 4th: the all-day Independence Day marathon. And should time really be an issue for you, we hope you can at least check out this homemade Independence Day trailer.

CineFix puts out these fantastic low-budget homemade trailers every few months and timed this one just right for the American holiday. Doing a shot-for-shot remake of any movie’s trailer with cardboard, household objects, and whatever else is lying around has got to be a daunting task. But remaking the trailer for 1996’s Independence Day is particularly ambitious considering all the action sequences, explosions, and CGI effects in it. As you can see, they absolutely nail it and even put out a behind-the-scenes reel for anyone wanting to see how the alien invader sausage is made.

These homemade pieces of awesome continue to push the homemade envelope by creating really fun analogs to effects. Shooting regular indoor shots seems easy enough to some degree but we’re floored by how great the massive explosions look when recreated with back-lit bunches of spray painted cotton. It’s truly something we would never think would look as good as it actually does in the finished product.

What are your thoughts on this take on the Independence Day trailer? What’s your favorite Homemade Trailer so far? Let’s discuss in the comments below!
