Chris McKay’s live-action directorial debut ‘The Tomorrow War’ dropped its final trailer. Starring Chris Pratt as a soldier drafted in the past to fight an alien invasion in the future, the movie is set to premiere on Amazon Prime on July 2, 2021. With this new teaser, we get an up-close and personal look at the alien creatures trying to erase humanity.
Check out the trailer:
The official synopsis explains that “Time travelers arrive from 2051 to deliver an urgent message: 30 years in the future mankind is losing a war against a deadly alien species. The only hope for survival is for soldiers and civilians to be transported to the future and join the fight. Determined to save the world for his daughter, Dan Forester teams up with a brilliant scientist and his estranged father to rewrite the planet’s fate.”
During a press junket, co-star Jasmine Mathews praised Pratt for his portrayal of Dan Forester in the film to SyFy.
“Chris is great. The way he is able to not only manage himself as an actor and as an executive producer on this project, but also really tune into people’s well-being on set, making sure that everybody’s good mentally and advocating for those that may need a break,” she said. “He’s always sort of watching for things like that and it’s beautiful to have him as one of our leaders on this because we really felt safe and taken care of. He’s hilarious, so we were always laughing in between takes.”
Pratt, who is also serving as executive producer, shared a behind-the-scenes look of the movie on social media where we learn that the aliens are called “Whitespikes,” and to them, humanity is a food supply.
“The watermark for terrifying aliens in cinema is set by the Xenomorph in Aliens and the Predator itself,” he wrote. “Get ready for a creature we truly believe sets a new bar. The biggest, baddest alien of them all, the (Whitespike.) We are food. And they are hungry.”
‘The Tomorrow War’ also stars Yvonne Strahovski, J. K. Simmons, Betty Gilpin, Sam Richardson, Edwin Hodge, Ryan Kiera Armstrong, and Keith Powers.
