Answer to Trivia

When you watch Independence Day, some of the most striking scenes in the movie are when the aliens attack and destroy some of the world's most iconic landmarks, including the White House. All of those scenes involved models which makes Independence Day the film with the most model work.

In fact, there was so much model work in the movie that the total number of model shots is about the same as two other movies added together. With the onset of computer-generated special effects in the last two decades, this is a record that will most likely never be broken.

Independence Day director Roland Emmerich is back this week with his latest film Midway. The movie recounts the events of the pivotal World War II battle that helped to turn the tide in the Pacific theater.

Midway is now available on 4K UHD, Blu-ray and DVD.
