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 movie -- which follows a group of survivors who take on some evil ETs after an alien invasion -- was the highest grossing flick in 1996, and earned over $50 million its opening weekend. Even today, the movie is still one of the highest grossing films 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 18 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 in the gallery!) and the First Daughter grew up to star on "Parenthood" and "Arrested Development."
