The Tomorrow War seems like every classic sci-fi flick all mashed together into one epic adventure.
Chris Pratt is back to save the world in the sci-fi drama The Tomorrow War.
The film was developed by Skydance Media and originally set to be released by Paramount Pictures. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the distribution rights were bought by Amazon Studios for a whopping $200 million.
The film follows military vet Dan Forester who is recruited by a group of time travelers to save humanity from an alien species bent on driving the human race to extinction. The only hope for humanity at present is to travel to the year 2051 to fight a war.
The official description reads:
In The Tomorrow War, the world is stunned when a group of time travelers arrive from the year 2051 to deliver an urgent message: Thirty years in the future mankind 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 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.
