This teaser trailer for The Tomorow War is only 30 seconds long and you know exactly how the movie is going to shake-out. More over-reaching slam-bam action and CGI. I find Chris Pratt‘s (on and off) screen persona tedious and I feel that I’ve seen this science fiction action film a million times before.
Directed by Chris McKay and hitting Amazon Prime on 2 July 2021 – the only good thing about The Tomorrow War is that it means the great J.K. Simmons can keep up with the mortgage payments.
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. Simmons) in a desperate quest to rewrite the fate of the planet.
