Independence Day: Resurgence
Independence Day: Resurgence is a 2016 popcorn flick which takes few risks with its sequel premise of giant alien ships invading the earth in large black spaceships—again.
Notably, a friendly faction is introduced into the universe, a posthuman virtual intelligence based alien who is leading a secret resistance against the returning alien antagonists.
It's a sexy posthuman–computer–sphere thing.
The Sphere belonged to a race that shed their biological existence and transferred their consciousnesses into artificial bodies thousands of years ago. At some point, their planet was conquered by a hostile alien race that harvested its core.
The Sphere was the sole survivor of its kind and carries the combined intelligence of its entire species. It then traveled across space and encountered other races that were defeated by the aliens, helping them find refuge on a planet and establishing a major resistance against the aliens.
