Start planning your future around the independences of chimps and Will Smith (3D)!

Next year July 3rd, the studio will release ID43D, a release of Independence Day that adds further redundant digits and a third dimension to the 1996 Roland Emmerich film. Stereo 3D, who handled James Cameron's Titanic 3D re-release, is managing the conversion. Blame them if Judd Hirsch ends up lacking sufficient visual depth.

Christmas of 2013 will see the the release of the Ben Stiller-centric Secret Life of Walter Mitty remake and a film version of the TV series/stage show Walking with Dinosaurs. You love dinosaurs!

The following year, Fox is teaming with DreamWorks to bring us Steven Spielberg's follow-up to Lincoln, Robopocalypse, a film that we've only heard a little about but that will assumedly deliver on the portmanteau it promises. That comes on April 25th.

On Memorial Day 2014 comes Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the Rise of the Planet of the Apes sequel that will now see the apes dawn, which sort of seems like stagnating after you've already risen. Rupert Wyatt returns to direct, and Andy Serkis is assumedly coming back to do more chimp gestures, too.

Rounding out Fox's summer 2014 offerings is Matthew Vaughn's still-untitled X-Men: First Class sequel. With Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence now ascending to huge star status, expect the film to pretty much just be them--probably them discussing how rightfully comfortable they both are being naked whenever asked.
