In 1996, Will Smith took on some realllly destructive aliens in "Independence Day" -- and what better day to check in with the cast than today, the Fourth of July!

It's no surprise the Roland Emmerich flick was the highest grossing movie of 1996, taking in over $50 million on opening weekend. The movie is currently the #32 highest-grossing film of all time.

Co-starring Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Vivica A. Fox, Harry Connick Jr., Randy Quaid and Harvey Fierstein, "Independence Day" boasts an eccentric cast -- and they've all been up to some really different things since the movie opened 16 years ago.

Will continued to battle aliens in the "Men In Black" films, Randy had a string of arrests through 2009-2010 (see one his mug shots above!) and the First Daughter grew up to star on "Parenthood."
