"Stargate" (1994)
When it comes to the films of Roland Emmerich, the German director who has immigrated to Hollywood to become the premiere purveyor of large-scale destruction, it doesn't get much better than 1994's "Stargate." A movie that combined ancient aliens theorizing with old-fashioned adventure, the film (that starred James Spader and Kurt Russell) spawned a series of successful television spin-offs and endless talk of a sequel. While the director confirmed that Will Smith might be in talks for "Independence Day 2," he also let slip during the same interview that a "Stargate" reboot/sequel thingee is also in the cards.
