Chris Pratt and Edwin Hodge on Sci-Fi Fun with Amazon’s The Tomorrow War [Exclusive Interview]

The Tomorrow War with Chris Pratt and Edwin Hodge


The fight for the future relies on the soldiers of the past.

In Amazon’s The Tomorrow War, the film flashes the best aspects of alien invasion movies like Independence Day and Starship Troopers with certain time traveling elements.

In this popcorn chomping summer flick, Amazon Studios brought the action straight to the streaming service just in time for fireworks.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Tomorrow War:

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.

The rest of the cast includes Betty Gilpin, Sam Richardson, Edwin Hodge, Jasmine Mathews, Ryan Kiera Armstrong, and Keith Powers. Chris McKay directed the movie from a script written by Zach Dean.
