Is Star Wars Ready To Be Dethroned?© 2018 20th Century Fox

In just a few days, the long wait will finally be over. On December 17 and 18 for most countries, Star Wars will wake up the Force and capture the hearts of its fans once again. It has been literally years since the last installment and everyone is pretty psyched about the newest addition to the saga, even Google joined in on at the excitement as it lets everyone choose their dark side through their account profiles. 

However, what comes next once we see the new red arm which C-3PO has been sporting in the new movie or how the Millenium Falcon now has a rectangular radar dish? What happens next? Of course we go and find a new obsession to be gaga about. Although Star Wars will always arguably the best Sci-Fi saga of all time, film makers didn't fail in giving us other movie franchises worthy of being excited over. As it is, there's always a movie worth waiting for and so far this weekend gave us a glimpse of what comes next after we've finally watched the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie.

Independence Day: Resurgence
After 20 years, the new installment from the 1996 sci-fi blockbuster Independence Day will finally be back on screen. Sure, it won't have Will Smith but the trailer alone makes you think it's A-okay even without the first one's protagonist on board. Yes, it might still be awhile till we see it since the movie will be coming out by June 2016 but movie buffs are masochistic that way. We love salivating over films that we wait for, for months. Alien invaders are bound to come back and all we can do is wait...at least for now. The Independence Day: Resurgence will feature characters from the first film played by Bill Pullman, Jeff Goldblum, Vivica A. Fox, and Judd Hirsch. Meanwhile, addition to the cast includes Liam Hemsworth, Maika Monroe and Joey King.

X-Men: Apocalypse

One of the most successful comics with different arcs, X-Men had captivated fans all over the globe. Sure, they might have lapses and had to reboot to give way to more story possibilities, but the franchise seems to be in the right track this time. The trailer of the new installment: X-Men: Apocalypse is yet another wow-inspiring glimpse of what's about to come in the silver screen by May 2016.

The stellar cast composed of James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar Isaac, Nicholas Hoult, Rose Byrne, Tye Sheridan, Olivia Munn, Lucas Till, Evan Peters, and the addition of Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner makes up for the fact that we won't be seeing the beloved Wolverine played by Hugh Jackman in this film. More mutants and with the greatest adversary they will face, movie goers and loyal comic readers will definitely line up the cinemas for this one. 

If those two new trailers doesn't excite you (which we highly doubt), well, there's still the force awakening that will keep you up in the following nights. Here's the trailer to further rile you up for the upcoming premiere!
