Time travelers from a war-torn future, the fate of the world in the balance, and soldiers recruited into a secret military campaign. Of course, Chris Pratt is going to lead something like that. Is it Christopher Nolan‘s sequel, a spin-off of “Edge of Tomorrow“? Nope, it’s “The Tomorrow War,” a brand-new sci-fi action blockbuster that hits Amazon Prime this summer.
In The Tomorrow War, the world is stunned when a group of time travelers arrives from the year 2051 to deliver an urgent message: Thirty years in the future, humanity is losing a global war against a deadly alien species. The only hope for survival is for soldiers and civilians from the present to be transported to the future and join the fight. Among those recruited is a high school teacher and family man Dan Forester (Chris Pratt). Determined to save the world for his young daughter, Dan teams up with a brilliant scientist (Yvonne Strahovski) and his estranged father (J.K. Simmons) in a desperate quest to rewrite the fate of the planet.
Alongside Pratt, Yvonne Strahovski, and J.K Simmons, “The Tomorrow War” also stars Betty Gilpin, Sam Richardson, Edwin Hodge, and Keith Powers. Jasmine Mathews, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Seychelle Gabriel, and Theo Van also star.
The film marks the live-action directorial debut for Chris McKay. He is best known for his animation work on the TV show “Robot Chicken” and “The Lego Movie.” Watch Pratt fight for his daughter’s tomorrow when the film hits Amazon Prime on July 2. Check out the full trailer below.
