Last week we told you that Fox isn’t holding advanced screenings for Independence Day Resurgence due to the nature of the movie’s ending, but now they’re spoiling it with TV spots.

Two TV spots aired over the weekend, one was posted online by Fox and the other hasn’t made its way online yet but aired during the NBA Finals on ABC last night. The TV spot Fox put online spoils the final scene of the movie and a big pay-off line leading into a major character’s death. The NBA Finals spot also shows a death of a different character.

We don’t have the image from the NBA Finals spot, but here are the spoilery shots from the online TV spot:

First up is this shot of Okun with the orb. The orb is actually the last survivor of a different alien race that the evil aliens wiped out. It came to Earth to recruit humans (who are the only race to ever defeat them) to lead the alien resistance in a final battle against the aliens. The final shot of the movie is Okun (upset over the death of his boyfriend) saying they need to go into space and kick some alien ass:

The shot of President Whitmore saying “on behalf of the people of Earth, Happy Fourth of July”? Yea that’s another major spoiler. Much like Randy Quaid in the first movie, Whitmore sacrifices himself to save the day by attacking the alien queen using a bomb:
