'Independence Day's 20th Anniversary Inspires Our Fond Look Back At The 1990s

'Independence Day' marks its 20th anniversary.

We're almost at the 20th anniversary of the iconic sci-fi thriller 'Independence Day' hitting our screens - released, fittingly, on 4 July 1996.

1996... remember then? The world around us looked somewhat different when Will Smith, Bill Pullman, Jeff Goldblum and co made their first defence against the aliens in the global blockbuster that triumphed at box offices everywhere.

Ahead of Jeff's return in the highly-awaited sequel later this month, we look back on era that stood alone for fashion, icons, music and our first forays into digital devices.
