On Independence Day, the most inspiring speech in film history


What does Independence Day mean to you? For many film fans outside the United States, it can only mean one thing.

While Americans celebrate getting their independence two centuries ago, us Brits will cast our mind back just 19 years to Roland Emmerich’s disaster film, and Bill Pullman’s inspiring speech.

A sequel to Emmerich’s film is due to be released in 2016, but it will have to go a long way to top one of the most memorable 90 seconds in cinema history.
