Alien Siege (2018) Script

Oh, God, I don't like the crossfade.

You want a hit?

Maybe later.

You know, Independence Day should actually be July 2nd.

That's the day the Continental Congress decided to break from England.

Well, yeah but didn't they also formally adopt the Declaration on the 4th of July?

Okay. If you want to go that way then the Declaration wasn't signed until August 2nd so technically August 2nd would be Independence Day.

So what you're telling me is that tomorrow is not the 4th of July.

Well, it is the 4th but not "The 4th." if you're down with John Adams.

Mm.

May the 4th be with you.

I am declaring my own Independence Day.

Independence from parents and teachers and school and everything.

But-you ever feel like that?

Maybe when I was your age.

Okay, you are three months older than me.

Look at that.

Look.

There's no way that's a meteor.

It's moving to slow.

Hey! What are you doing? That's my song!

There has to be something about this online.

Well, yeah, everyone in Cumberland has posted about it.

Must be like a missile test or something.

No, that's D.C., there's no way they're testing missiles over there.

Are you getting that?

Did my family land in Vermont yet?

They just landed, sir.

Good. I want a report when they're in a secure position.

Yes, Mr. President.

Have they said anything new?

Same thing. They want it back.

Are you sure your translation's right?

Sir, this comes direct from the asset.

We'll be in position shortly, sir.

Sorry to keep you in the dark, Smith.

But I need you focused on deciphering that thing.

Is everything in order?

It is, sir. The rocket is ready to launch.

Waiting on your command.

Find anything?

I'm not getting anything from any of the commercial sites.

The Pentagon has to know what this is.

Good luck getting any info from them.

I know a back way in.

Cool.

It's encrypted from within their site.

Let me see.

Just override the digital certificate.

No, that's not gonna work. I got this.

Okay, and here we go.

Everybody's on high alert but nobody's saying what it is.

What's that!

They've launched a missile.

I've got the nose camera on the screen, now.

I could tell you one thing, Mr. President.

You're about to see the biggest gosh-dang fireworks show you've ever seen.

Next message we get from those boogers-- if we get one at all... will be a S.O.S.

If, of course, Colonel Smith can translate that information.

I can handle it.

Are we at war?

Whoa.

We gotta get out of here.

Come on. Let's go. Come on.

What?

-You getting that? -[Ryan] Yeah.

Fifteen seconds to impact, sir.

How's this for a hand shake!

Did you see that?

Luke, come on.

Visual's lost with the missiles, sir.

Sir, we have picked up the signature of the object again.

-What do you mean? -It's moving towards us.

Which direction is it headed?

Washington D.C.

And, sir, we've picked up the transmission again...

-Same message as before. -The one we decoded?

Yes. It's identical.

They want it back.

We've mobilized the Air Force and Air National Guard.

We grounded Air Force One. It's too big a target.

So we'll go with Marine One.

Standing by, sir.

That's not what I think it is, is it, Colonel Smith?

Sir, this is the device.

I thought it was on the way to Lake Groom.

It was but we've had a new development.

If that's what's been bringing them here maybe it isn't wise to be toting it around.

The case shields it from all spectrum interference.

Detection should be impossible.

If it is impossible to detect then what was it that brought them here in the first place?

Sir, it wasn't encased when we first obtained the device.

We only did that when we discovered it was transmitting information.

-You were at that briefing, sir. -Colonel!

What is the new development?

In layman's terms, the arrival today has caused a change in the device's operational status.

Spit it out, Colonel.

The device is now active.

Sir, I recommend an alteration in flight plans.

We need to visit the asset. It might be our only chance to get on top of this.

Mr. President, it's a quick diversion on the way to Reagan Rock.

I agree with the Colonel.

Okay.

Destination, Mr. President?

Bunker 25 on the outskirts.

Copy that, Colonel. We'll be there in 20 minutes.

Buckle up. We're waiting for the all-clear command from Air Control.

Mr. President.

We brought in the device when we made contact.

Despite the full spectrum shielding we did notice some activity that coincided with their arrival.

So what you're saying is, not only do we have a threat from above but their doomsday device could initiate its final sequence at any moment?

Sir, I wouldn't exactly characterize it as a doomsday device.

This device that you're carrying, Colonel, has the capability of ending our world as we know it.

If it hasn't already... by bringing a full-scale extraterrestrial invasion.

So don't tell me it's not a doomsday device, Colonel.

Yes, sir.

This is why we're going to see the asset.

No one has more knowledge of its workings, sir.

What are we waiting for then? Let's go!

We're waiting for the confirmation on the clear air space, Mr. President.

Copy that, General.

Guys, we gotta go.

Come on, we gotta get out of here.

Luke.


Hey, Rachel!

What?

Take a look at this.

Never seen anything like it.

Where's Luke?

I don't know. He left with his friends.

Oh my God.

All right. Let's get in the house. Now. Go! Go!

Oh, no.

Let's go! We have to get out of here!

The air space is not clear, Mr. President.

Air Traffic Command has issued a no-fly zone over D.C. until it's all clear.

That's a direct order.

Copy that, Mr. President.


Request air support.

Do you have some kind of evasive maneuvers up your sleeve?

I suggest you use it. Now!

Come on! Come on!

Wait wait wait! Guys! I live this way.

I'll take you. I gotta get back home too.

-Okay, well, we'll see you. -Okay.

He has Paige with him.

Okay, we'll drop her off at home.

Okay, here's what we're gonna do.

We're gonna pick up Luke.

We'll go to the mountains and stay at the cabin by the lake.

I think we're being invaded.

Hey, you better call your parents.

-What about you? -It doesn't matter.

-Yes it does. -No it doesn't.

They're not even in the country.

They're in France on some holiday for like a month.

Wait, so you're alone?

Well I have the maid during the day, but...

No, why don't you come to my house?

Your parents don't exactly like me.

Shut up. They like you.

Better get that.

Mom. Yeah. I'm sorry I didn't answer.

Yes. I saw it.

I'm... I'm coming home.

We'll be there in 20 minutes.

Okay. Okay. Love you.

They're coming to the church to pick us up.

We got the First Lady on the line, Mr. President.

Hey.

Wanted you and the little one to know...

We're out of harm's way.

We got out.

A convoy is on its way to pick you up and take you to Reagan Rock.

Yeah, I understand.

Of course I want to be with you, but that can't happen right now.

We'll be there soon.

No, no. You have to stay where you are.

-This doesn't make any sense. -What?

They're saying... the U.S. Capitol is gone.

I don't know. Everyone is freaking out.

The whole military is going into action.

What's wrong?

I just lost signal.

Me too.

Does anybody have service?

Let's go.

They're on us.

All right. You guys are always bragging about what you can do when you open this thing up.

Now is the time to go for it.

You got it, Mr. President.

Hang on! It's gonna be a bumpy ride!

Where's the air support you called for?

Air support is en route. You stick to our flight plan.

Where's the V.P. now?

Can I get a line on her?

-Sir? -I wanna check her status.

They can't get a clear shot with that thing on our tail.

We have to do something.

Hang on! We're going low!

No!

Arms over your head! Mr. President!

Protect yourselves!

If I go down, it'll be chin up.

They might need our help.

Clear!

We need to move.

-We can't leave the-- -I got it.

Stop right there!

Don't shoot! We're Americans!

Stay where you are!

They're kids.

They're coming back!

Get down!

Come on!


Let's move!

That means you too. On your feet!

We have to get out of the open.

That's the president.

That's the president of the United States.

Come on. Come on.

Phone's out.

It's a bad zone for service.

Luke is supposed to be here.

Where is he?

Don't worry. We'll find him.

Let's, uh... let's head towards the park.

I've never seen Main Street so deserted.

The new arrival must have scared a lot of people.

Go go go go!

People acting crazy cause they're scared.

All right. We're not gonna let that happen.

Working together. That's how we're gonna do this, okay?

Okay.

Oh my God. Patrick, stop.

Oh my God.

Wait! Rachel!

Who is that?

Oh my God.

It's Ryan.

Wasn't he with Luke?

We don't know that for sure.

-Luke! -Rachel!

Stop.

Look, it's not safe. I need you to stay at the truck.

No! I'm coming with you.


Patrick.

Stay back.

Ohh.

Don't look. It's not Luke.


Where do those things come from?

Looks like some kind of teleporter.

Beams those things from the mother ship to Earth.

-Let's go. -No no no. Wait. Stop.

We gotta break it.

Stop the invasion.

What about Luke? Where is he?

We'll find him. I promise. Okay?

But if I don't do something this town's gonna be crawling with these things.

No one will be safe. It has to be done, okay?

So go back to the truck and I'll be there in a minute.

No.

If you wanna act like an idiot someone has to watch your back.

Okay.

But if one of those things come close you pump them full of lead, all right?

There. There's seven rounds in there.

And there's seven here.

Okay, if things go down, you keep firing and you get back to the truck.

-Okay. -Okay?


Stay.


Rachel!

Ah!

Ah!

Are you okay? Come on.

Oh God.

What is this thing?

Ah! Hold on.

We can't stop, sir.

I need a break.

-What's the status on-- -I don't have an answer now.

Excuse me.

You're Ben Draper. Our President.

Sure looks like him, doesn't he?

He's a decoy.

We've got dozens of look-alikes running around.

It's a tactic to confuse enemies.

I'm not buying that.

It doesn't matter if you buy it.

Oh, so you're then you're just some fake decoy military officer?

And the guy back there that got killed, he's a decoy as well?

I hope his pay is good.

Enough.

I'm the president.

Is someone gonna tell us what's going on?

Who is attacking us?

Is... are we at war?

They're aliens aren't they?

Thank you for your bravery.

Most people wouldn't fault you for running in the other direction.

When they see a helicopter crash.

But you came to our aid.

And I want to thank you.

According to our last position we aren't far from our objective here.

Until we have an extraction point we continue moving forward.

We don't have a choice.

We'll need communication. Do you guys have a phone?

I-I have mine but none of our phones are working.

We have to figure out another way.

I--I do have a mesh network.

It's a--a network that's off the cellular grid.

Electronics can work in proximity.

But only with others that are on the network We use it to talk to each other sometimes.

-I built it in 9th grade. -I helped.

We built it together.

Rigged up all the transmitters.

This could help.

Tell me more about your setup.

Oh!

Oh! Patrick!

Baby! Baby! Come with me.

Up, up... come on. Come on.


Ahhh!

Let me look at you.

No, no, leave me! Go find Luke!

-No, I'm--I'm not leaving you. -No!

-I'm not leaving you! -No!


Sit down.

Sit down right here. Right here.

Okay.

All right, okay.

My phone! I left my phone! Luke is gonna call us.

No. I know. I need you to calm down.

Okay, we'll find him, he'll be okay.

How are we gonna do that from here?

Look, I need you to breathe.

Breathe, okay?

Here's what we're gonna do.

We're gonna take care of your leg, then we're gonna figure out what we're gonna do next, okay?

We need to find Luke.

By night.

Patrick.

Okay. Okay. Luke's a smart kid. He's a smart kid, right?

If he's out in this, he's gonna--he's gonna find someplace to lay down low.

Okay.

Under here!

Luke and Paige, how wide of an area did you say your mesh network covered?

Um, a good three miles. Two and a half.

Mr. President, I think their mesh network could be useful in establishing a line of communication.

Good idea.

You've both been very brave here today... braver than most.

People like you are the reason I ran for office.

Get down!

Mr. President, stay with the briefcase. I'll catch up.

Paige!

Run!


What's the status?

There's no change.

Wait, there is something.

Looks like it tried to deactivate it.

Did it work?

No, something's happening to it, but it's not deactivated.

What is it?

We need to get to the asset ASAP.

Come on, let's double-time.

This way.

Stay low!

Wait! They're human!

-Mom! -Oh, Luke! Oh my God!

Mom! Mom!

Mom!

What--what happened to you?

-I'll be fine. I'll be fine. -I knew you kids would be okay.

Oh my God.

Come on.

We've gotta get you off the road.


You look like you need some assistance, ma'am.

Oh! You-- You're the president.

Mr. President, it's an honor to serve you, sir.

Yeah, let's get inside.

Take a seat over here.

I'm fine, sir, uh, Mr. President.

Stay quiet.


So those-- those things out there, Mr. President, are they from, uh, up there?

Six years ago, during the term of my predecessor--

Mr. President-- we received first contact from a being from another planet.

You mean aliens.

That's right.

Six years? You've been hiding this for six years?

I wasn't given the intel until I took office.

This being was a refugee from a distant world.

It was injured, but we brought it back.

This refugee told us he was an engineer.

Wait, it spoke English?

It knew how to communicate with us.

It seemed to know everything about us.

The Engineer told us its world had been taken over by warmongers, their leaders irrational, full of hate.

What do they want with us?

The Engineer is part of a program to build a device that would dominate the universe.

That briefcase right there, the one the aliens were trying to steal-- it's part of this, isn't it?

What is in there?

That's classified.

That's what the alien refugee gave us-- alien technology--probably the most powerful in the universe--

and the only one in existence.

And they want it back.

I think that's enough information, sir.

Mr. President, how did you end up on the edge of the city?

We fell from above.

And thankfully your son and his friend here found us.

How are you, ma'am? How are you?

I'm okay.

Didn't hit an artery. It's stable for now, but it's not gonna be for long.

Can I take a look?

Luke, you don't need to see this.

It's okay, he can see it.

Oh!

Luke... you okay?

Yeah.

We have to remove it.

The leg?

No, son, that bit of metal.

Oh!

We need to get you somewhere with some first aid supplies.

You're a vet, right?

Marine Corps, 22 years.

What's your MLS?

Marine Raider, reconnaissance corpsman.

Patrick, glad to have you with us.

Right now, we're on our own.

Our land is hostile territory.

The president and I got shot down on our way to a top-secret location nearby.

You need to get first aid supplies and your family to safe cover.

That syncs with our current objective, so we will accompany you there and then be on our way.

Colonel and Mr. President, it'd be my honor to serve you, but my duty is towards my family first.

Son, I wouldn't have it any other way.

And what, may I ask, is your objective?

-Your house. -What?

We need to access your mesh network.

My what?

It's a network Luke--

It's-- it's a setup for emergency times.

And this is at my house?

In the vicinity.

Luke here pointed us the way.

Now if it's still operational, we'd like to put it to use.

Yeah, okay, whatever-- whatever you need.

Okay. Let's go.

We need to stay off the road.

We can cut through the woods.

It comes through at Fairview gas station.

Okay.

I know.

Let's see if we can find you some painkillers, okay?

You've been brave.

-Come on. -I know, I know, I know. Okay.

Okay. Here.

Guys?

Get down! Get down!

Patrick!

There's more of them!

Luke!

How much ammo do you have in that thing?

Enough for this one.

Get in, in, in, in, get in, in, in!

Go, go!

Get in! Get-- get in! Get in there!

Get in!

-Keep down! -Hide!

Smith! Smith, what are you doing? Smith, get back!

Get back! Smith!

Smith!

We're clear, let's go!


That must be the weak spot.

I-- I tried stabbing one back at the barn.

That was the only place I could penetrate.

Ah!

-Easy, easy, easy. -I'm-- I'm fine.

No, you're not. We've gotta get you home.

Colonel, we need to get her home and take care of that leg.

Copy that. You got whatever meds you need?

We gotta get off this road, guys.

We're too exposed.


Sit on the couch.

Come on.

Power's out.

-What you need? -We need towels.

The gas should still be working.

Can you boil some water please?

-Oh my god. -Don't look at it, don't look at it, look at me.

We're gonna get this out.

Okay. Okay.

This is gonna hurt, but we need to do this, okay?

Luke--

Luke.

Can you show me your mesh network?

Okay.

Does it need power?

Okay. All right, just relax-- breathe, breathe breathe.

Lie back, lie back, lie back.

Just breathe, relax. Okay.

Be strong, okay?

I'm gonna go upstairs and get the rest of the ammo, okay?

Breathe for me, okay? Breathe. Relax. Breathe.

-Okay. -Okay.


It'll run for nearly a week on this.

-Okay. -How big is your network?

We have 10 spots up on it now.

It goes nearly to the Point, but people keep stealing our setups over there, so we've kept it close.

-Can you hook it up to a laptop? -Yeah.

-Do you have one on you? -Yeah.

Do it. Let me know when it's done.

Now I told you to breathe. Breathe. Just stay strong.

I'm gonna go upstairs and get the rest of the bullets, okay?

-Mm-hm. -All right.

Breathe for me. Okay? Breathe. All right?

Hey, Rachel, how you feeling?

This'll be quick.

Patrick, you know I don't drink.

It's for me.

Honey.

Network's good.

Your mom's gonna be fine.

How's everything on your end?

Um, the network's up.

Connections are shaky, but they're good.

Okay. Let's get this set up.

The original Internet was military, you know that?

ARPANET.

We gave it away, but we kept something for ourselves.

We maintain an alternate internet over high-band radio frequency.

Thanks to your mesh network, we're accessing it right now.

Mr. President, we need to figure out an extraction point.

I'll tap into two-way radio comms.

This is Eagle One.

I repeat, this is Eagle One. Please respond.

Mr. President, will you keep an eye on that?

Patrick, let's go check on your wife's wound.

This is Eagle One, over.

-Can I take a look? -Yeah.

Okay. If it starts bleeding again, let me know, but it looks good.

Painful, but we're lucky it didn't hit an artery.

Thank you.

Your mom is one tough cookie, Luke.

I see where you got your moxie.

You should get something to eat from the kitchen.

I know you're hungry.

Thank you.

We made quite a spread for the 4th of July.

It would be a shame for it to go to waste.

You do tech for the Army?

My team decoded the language with the help of a-- classified source.

We were just starting to understand the software when they showed up.

Is it a linear binary code?

Who's the classified source?

It's classified.


Let's check the artillery.

Son, you'll get a medal for what you've done today.

Yes, I will.

You're kidding me.

The device is connecting to a mesh network.

What?

It looks like a duplicate operating system-- like they made an off-device copy.

But it's connecting.

-Haskell. -Don't.

What?

Don't use Haskell. Try something imperative.

No, we'll use Haskell, it's too risky.


They're surface-to-air missiles.

They're close.

We can't stay here.

No, not that. Try this.

Wait, wait, wait, slow down.

That looks like some kind of an initiation code.

That's a trigger, don't touch that!

It's not a trigger, it is something else.

Do you see that?

It's an alphanumeric code.

We can disable this thing?

Let's do it together.


Stop! Get away from it!

What have you done?

When your team copied the operating system, they left a link open.

It was still connected, and it let us back in.

And you thought it would be a good idea to touch any of it?

What if that accidentally triggers it?

We didn't trigger anything.

It's a manual trigger. We didn't touch that. But we did--

You are about to be in a world of hurt.

You have no idea what you've done.

Oh my God.

Smith! Smith!

Okay, everybody out-- come on, out.

Come on, let's go, let's go, let's go. Come on. Go, go, go.

Patrick-- Patrick--

There's more coming.

We need more ammo.

This won't stop them for long.

I need you to go upstairs, the extra gun's in the lockbox in the bedroom.

Okay? Go. Go, go, go.


God, get off me!

Luke!

Hey, let go of her!

Luke!


We need fireworks, they ran through their armor.


Go! Keep the device safe.

Keep my family safe, too, please.

I will.


Luke, it's under the bed.

Guys, there's more coming.

Do you know how to use one of those things?

-Here. -What?

I don't know how to use this.

Hold it like this.

This is the safety.

When you're ready to shoot, aim by lining up the sites.

Did your dad teach you this?

Yeah.

Thanks.

-Ready? -Yes.


Luke!


I'm still linked to their device.

Don't do that.

They told you not to mess with that!

-But we can fix this. -Stop it.

If we don't stop this thing, who will?

Stop!

We don't have a lot of time.

You need to tell me what you did.

It's linear coding.

It's an off-unit sequence.

Tell us what it does, and we'll tell you.

We don't have the time for this.

You two made the situation exponentially worse.

You need to tell me what you did, now.

Colonel, ma'am, you and the president haven't been straight with us since we met.

You hid this from the American people.

We need to know what this is and what we're dealing with, and then we can help.

Otherwise, you can go on your own.

We don't have much time.

From what we've gathered, it's an antimatter generator.

Antimatter and matter destroy each other, turning into pure energy.

It's many times more powerful than even a hydrogen bomb.

Then what is this?

It's a countdown.

All clear for now, but no guarantee when they'll come back.

Luke, get me that relay backup.

Fireworks react with their armor.

I think it's the potassium nitrate.

Potassium nitrate is an oxidizer, and mixed with gunpowder, it's highly reactive.

Copy you, Eagle One.

Are you in a secure location?

We're tied down out here.

I'll have to get back to you with an ETA for extraction.

-You hang tight, over. -Copy, Captain. Standing by.

And Captain, be advised-- their armor reacts to potassium nitrate.

Potassium nitrate, do you copy? Over.

Copy that. We'll spread the word. Over.

What's that, Colonel?

Sir, I'm sorry to report the device is now armed.

I can fix this. Wait, Luke, you did this?

We did this together.

I leave you alone for one minute--

-Armed? -What do you mean, "armed?"

It's a-- a countdown.

A countdown to what?

It's a bomb.

How much time do we have?

Less than an hour.

An hour? Less than one hour?

You have to stop this!

Calm down--that's what we're working on right now.

Your son and his friend here will have to come with us.

-Where are you going? -To see the asset.

Patrick, is that your truck outside?

Yeah.

We're gonna need it.


-Ohh! -Here you go.

Smith. Is it safe?

Looks clear.


Oh, no, no, no!

Don't make any sudden movements.

Why?

We don't wanna startle him.

It's a him?

We call him Al.

Okay.

Okay, you guys, you better stay back.

Does it speak?

Rudimentary, but we've rigged a translator to its armor.

Al, this is the President of the United States.

If you don't know already, your kind are here now.

They're coming for the device you gave us.

We need your help.

We need your help stopping them.

Can he even hear us?

Got your attention now.

Remember this?

This is what you gave us.

We need your help in turning it against them.

It can only be used once.

We know that.

If we use it, it would destroy everything.

By activating it now, you risk destroying your planet.

We don't want to activate it.

It has been activated.

We know! That's why we brought it to you.

We wanna turn it off.

It cannot be done.

You're the expert in this thing.

There must be some way to turn it off.

You shouldn't have taken the device from me.

I brought it here to destroy it.

Al, that's why we took it from you.

You-- you brought a weapon to our planet.

What do you expect us to do?

Your people turned on the device.

That's what sent out the beacon.

That's what brought them here.

Maybe you should have given us some type of warning.

I did warn you, Mr. President.

I communicated with your scientists.

I communicated with your Colonel Smith.

I told you everything I know about the device and what it was designed to do.

I warned you that we must all work together to dismantle it, and most of all that it should never be turned on.

-Excuse me, Al-- -Hey, hey, whoa, hey--

We didn't mean to activate it.

It was connecting to our network on its own.

We didn't mean to start it.

We were just trying to take it out.

Can it be deactivated?

It cannot.

Once the countdown has begun, there is no stopping it.

You're certain of this?

That is correct.

I designed the timer that links to the trigger.

It's a complicated device.

Each of us designed a small section of its development.

It was designed in such a way, in small sections, that no single individual could create the whole device, or deactivate it.

There must be something, something you must know to help us.

Something you may realize that is important.

We need your help.

It is too late. It cannot be stopped.

Better for your planet to be destroyed than to give it to them.

Al.

Al, help us to stop this.

Better for your planet to be destroyed than to give it to them.


Colonel Smith, I am sorry.


So we can't stop it.

Is that what you're saying?

We need to get outta here.

We can't go back to the house now, they know where it is.

I got an idea.


It doesn't matter where we are.

When this thing goes off, it'll take out everyone.

The only way to stop them is to use it against them.

Can't you strap it to a missile or something?

Shoot it at the mothership?

We tried that.

So that's it? It didn't work?

Ma'am, we're not giving up.

Please, can we just focus on figuring out how to deactivate the device?

We don't have to deactivate it.

We can use it against them.

We've tried that.

No, Mr. President, listen, please.

Rachel and I saw a way to get to the mothership.

All right, when we first encountered them, we-- we-- there-- we saw them using some kind of device that beamed them back and forth to their ship.

I took part of it off to disable it.

I thought it might slow the invasion.

Maybe we can beat it back up to them-- ugh.

Easy, easy.

You remember how they worked it?

Yes, sir, absolutely. I saw how they did it.

I saw their interface. Had a bunch of symbols.

Maybe together, we can make it work.

Yeah, but isn't it dangerous that the bombs would be exploding that close to the Earth?

What other option do we have?

A person takes on the White House to make a difference.

You hope for that defining moment, when the world is on the brink, that you'll make that right decision.

No president ever imagined this problem.

No president could ever want this trouble.

But here it is, and it's not me who's gonna save the world.

It's allof us.

It's up to us.

Maybe the last, best hope humanity has.

No one can do it for us.

Let's make the world proud.

Let's go kill these suckers.

-Jump in the back. -Okay.

Honored to ride with you all.

Without fireworks, we're gonna be in serious trouble if we run into them.

We need to get more.

Uh, I still have these.

I know bottle rockets are kinda lame, but better than nothing, right?

Thanks.

You'll be safer here than out in the open.

-Look, we'll be back in a jiffy. -I'm coming with you.

No, no, you've got the weapons here.

I want you to stay here. We'll be back, okay?

I want us to be together.

Listen, there's no point in separating now.

I'm the commander-in-chief, and I'm giving an executive order-- we're all staying together, and that's that.

Well, if that's an order--

It's a direct order, soldier.

You go up front with the device.

Yes, sir.


For all mankind.

For all mankind.

So how does this thing work?

You just beam it up, and that's it?

Wish it were that easy.

Aaahhhh!

One of us needs to be there to make sure they don't deactivate it.

The one part of this device that we really understand is the trigger.

I got him. Ugh!

We can't stop the countdown, but we can trigger the device.

-Get him! -I got him.

Nice.

We have to set it off manually, it's the only way.

We don't have much time.

-It's up this way -We have to hurry.

-How much time do we have? -Minutes.

Hold on.


Teleporter is back here.

Great.


What are we waiting for?

When I disabled it, I didn't actually take the part with me.

But we can find it.

It's just-- it's in those woods somewhere, -I threw it down there. -We're running out of time.

Okay, well, let's go.

You know how to use this, right? Okay.

Got it.

Cover me, Mr. President!

Luke, go long!

Okay, this way-- I got it from right here.

Okay, all clear. You ready?

Yeah.

So we just grab on top, and then push down.

That's it?

I think so.

Smith...

--I wanna thank you for your service to our country.

You will be remembered. We really--

Mr. President.

Something's coming through.

It's no use-- the shot didn't have an effect on it.

Paige!


The bomb?

Does anyone else know how to use it?

I do-- it's an alphanumeric code.

We can set it to go off once I'm inside.

No, you-- you won't be able to get back.

Maybe not.

Okay, well, I'm going. Show me how to do it.

We only get one shot at this.

I'll go-- it's my responsibility.

No, Mr. President, somebody has to restart this country when this is all over.

It has to be me.

Luke, show me how to do it.

No!

There has to be another way.

Let me do this!

You are not going up there.

Mom, I need to fix this.

I am not letting you go!

I-- I can bring you back. I can--

This is not happening!

We're running out of time. I'll go!

Then I'll go with you. Luke, show me how to set it off.

Luke, please-- please-- no-- no--

Hey, we're coming back. Okay?

Okay. Okay.

Couldn't let you have all the fun now, could I, Luke?


How we doing, Luke?

How we doing?

I'm almost ready!

Come on, Luke!

I'm ready!

Don't mess with humanity!


I think they did it.

Luke, Luke!


Now these are some fireworks.

Happy 4th of July, Mr. President.
