THE TOMORROW WAR Starring Chris Pratt & Betty Gilpin To Premiere On Amazon Prime This July
Chris McKay's upcoming sci-fi action film The Tomorrow War, starring Chris Pratt, Betty Gilpin and JK Simmons, is officially skipping theaters and will premiere on Amazon Prime Video this July...
We first learned that The Tomorrow War might be skipping theaters altogether back in January, and THR is now reporting that Chris McKay's upcoming sci-fi actioner will be heading to Amazon Prime for a streaming debut later this year.
The former Paramount release, which was originally supposed to hit theaters last year before the pandemic resulted in mass delays, will now premiere on Prime Video in over 240 countries and territories on July 2.
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.
Betty Gilpin, Sam Richardson and Edwin Hodge also star.
“The Tomorrow War will be a global event that will surprise and delight our customers around the world,” said Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios. “Director Chris McKay has brilliantly crafted this unique, action-packed sci-fi escape that will keep audiences on the edge of their seats and tug on their heart strings with its father-daughter storyline. We couldn’t be happier to continue our relationship with Chris Pratt—who brings such dynamic star power to the film—along with David Ellison and the Skydance team, as we share this exciting film with fans.”
“I’m so proud of this incredible cast and crew who worked under challenging circumstances to create a unique, original sci-fi action movie… something that’s increasingly rare. Watching this team of actors and artisans effortlessly blend action, horror, comedy, and drama was a dream come true for me … and I hope will thrill audiences this summer,” added McKay.
