Singapore in Independence Day: Resurgence Super Bowl Trailer

Check out the latest Independence Day: Resurgence Super Bowl Trailer. If you see carefully, you might be able to spot some Singapore landmarks.

Well, it’s nice to know that Singapore wasn’t destroyed during the 1996 Independence Day’s alien Invasion. But looks like this time the aliens has found the little red dot.

OK, it’s just a movie. And most likely Singapore will only show up in the movie for a few seconds to represent worldwide destruction by the alien invaders.

But it good to know that Singapore is finally cool enough to be destroyed by Hollywood’s aliens. In the past, the Hollywood’s aliens and natural disasters usually just destroy cool landmarks such as London Eye, Sydney Opera House, Eiffel Tower, Christ the Redeemer, Great Wall of China etc. It’s nice to know that Singapore has entered the list of landmarks to be destroyed to represent “worldwide destruction”.

The Batcave features a Bat Lab with Batcomputer, Batcopter with flick missiles, Batcycle and Batmobile.

The classic Batmobile looks fantastic. I wish LEGO will also sell the Batmobile alone. Would really like to have one together with Batman and Robin in classic costume.

Nothing can compare to the iconic film scores of John Williams. An American composer, conductor, and pianist with a career spanning over six decades, John Williams has composed some of the most popular and recognizable film scores in cinematic history. From the first sinister bass notes of Jaws to the grandeur of Jurassic Park, from the emotion of E.T. to the mystery of Harry Potter, from the sublime Schindler’s List to the sensational Superman, these magnificent music masterpieces remain as popular today as when first released. Crowning it all is Star Wars, as one of the most epic scores of all time.

Each memorable music will be further brought to life by a magnificent light and laser display stunningly programmed to perfectly complement each musical score. This spectacular lighting display is designed by Durham Marenghi who has recently been appointed as the lighting designer for the Rio 2016 Olympic Opening and Closing Ceremonies.

The concert will be introduced and conducted by the irrepressible showman Anthony Inglis, taking charge of the full 80 piece Singapore Metropolitan Festival Orchestra.
