Movie fans who like to buy them on the cheap should jump on today's sale in the Google Play Store. The classic sci-fi invasion film Independence Day can be bought for just 99 cents for Android phone and tablet owners.
This is the HD version of the movie, by the way, which normally costs $12.99, so you might want to kick the tires and light the fires to get it for a fraction of its usual cost. The 1996 film was a box office blockbuster, making over $800 million worldwide.
The sale comes on the same day that a new trailer was released for the movie's upcoming sequel, "Independence Day: Resurgence". The movie, which brings back many of the original actors, will be released in theaters on June 24.
One more thing: There's also a funny promo for the sequel starring Jeff Goldblum to help celebrate Earth Day today, and all of the proceeds from the sale will go towards Earth Day Network and their Trees for the Earth initiative. Enjoy
