Amazon Prime Video unveils a muscular first trailer for its sci-fi thriller The Tomorrow War starring Chris Pratt. Parks and Recreation’s former Andy Dwyer plays a soldier sent to the future to save the world from aliens.
Amazon has just released the first official trailer for sci-fi blockbuster The Tomorrow War, which premieres July 2 on the platform. Chris Pratt plays Dan Forester, a family man, former military turned high school teacher, recruited by a group of time travelers to wage a war 30 years into the future.
We discover these soldiers of the future as they interrupt a televised football match to recruit fighters of today. “In 11 months, all human beings in the future will be wiped off the face of the earth, unless you help us“, says one of them …
And for good reason: extraterrestrials threaten the survival of human hope on Earth. The only hope for this is to send soldiers and civilians from the present to 2051 to join the effort to save the planet. Dan teams up with his estranged father, played by JK Simmons, and a brilliant scientist, played by Yvonne Strahovski.

Without ever denying his past as a boy-next-door, which he embodied to perfection in Parks and Recreation, Chris Pratt throws a few jokes here and there between two explosions. But he also fully embodies the figure of the hero, the not-so-ordinary dad, with concrete abs.
And like any good self-respecting hero, he delivers the answer that hits the mark, with just the right emotion: “I was trying to save my daughter“, he said, hardened by war.”If I have to save the world to save her, then I will.“
Initially, Paramount Pictures was to distribute the film in theaters, from December 25, 2020 in the United States. Postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the studio will schedule it for the summer of 2021. It is finally announced at the beginning of the year that Amazon has spent 200 million euros to acquire the rights to the film and distribute it on its platform.
