I was recently examining some old photos when I came across three pictures that showed a film in the background.

Can anyone help me in identifying this movie?

My first assumptions were The Transformers:The Last Knight or Rogue One due to the satellite, but none of them have a scene with the subtitle saying "Kids hold on".

My other guesses were something like 2012 or Battleship.

    Why does the third picture look like anime instead of a live-action movie?

  • @Medinoc Low color depth? The human arm in the first image seems to have the same thing going on.

    @Medinoc I thought it was a Matt painting behind the scenery like in Star Wars, but 2016 is in the greenscreen/cgi era.

These images are from Independence Day: Resurgence (2016).

    "They're gonna target the cannon first." Shows how ignorant the writers are. You target the radar first, so the cannon can't aim as fast and accurately. Then you aim at the cannon.

  • @RonJohn Are the writers ignorant, or the characters?

  • @Barmar the characters are wearing combat armor, and are huddled behind what appears to be a radar station. I’ve not seen the movie, so don’t know who they’re supposed to be, but that indicates they’re “military”, and so should know better. Screen writers knowing squat about the military is a truth of nature which is regularly confirmed (the occasional exception providing the rule).
