This awesome vintage t-shirt is for the iconic 1996 sic fi film Independence Day directed by Roland Emmerich who also directed Godzilla, The Patriot, and The Day After Tomorrow. The shirt features an amazing graphic of one of the alien invaders that threatens Earth during the movie. The movie has a star-studded cast consisting of Will Smith, Jeff Goldblum, Brent Spiner, Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, Randy Quaid, Vivica A. Fox, and Harvey Fierstein, among many others.
The movie required a then record 3,000 plus special effects shots, and in order to save money the majority of effects were created in-camera rather than through computer generation. Many of the shots were created at the Hughes Aircraft in Culver City, California where the film's art department, motion control photography teams, model shop, and pyrotechnics team were all headquartered. The aliens in the film were designed by Patrick Tatopoulus who is also known for his work on films like Underworld, Bram Stoker's Dracula, and the Chronicles of Riddick series. He designed bio-mechanical suits for the aliens with the specific goal to have them look like they could not house a human being, in order to avoid the aliens resembling a man in a suit.
The film was nominated and received various awards including the People's Choice Award for Favorite Dramatic Motion Picture and Saturn Awards for Best Special Effects, Best Science Fiction Film, and Best Director. It eventually spawned a 2016 sequel titled Independence Day: Resurgence.
Fits like a modern unisex adult over-sized medium. There are repairs on the side and the back, see pics.
