Independence Day (1996)

Will Smith's alien invasion epic attacked the box office the way the film's space creatures attacked Nevada...only with more success. The film was the highest-grossing film of the year and, at the time, the second-highest grossing film of all time. It also kicked off the comeback of science fiction at the multiplex.
