Final “Tomorrow War” Trailer Features Chris Pratt’s Alien Foes
“We’re food, and they’re hungry,” says Romeo Command (Yvonne Strahovski) in the final trailer for The Tomorrow War. Romeo Command is a tough-as-nails soldier/scientist in the year 2051, and she’s doing her best to get Dan Forester (Chris Pratt) up to speed on just how bad things are going here in the future. That’s one of the conceits of director Chris McKay’s sci-fi feature—Dan has been plucked from his timeline and dropped into the future in an effort to help win the titular war against a race of hungry aliens. Humanity has been losing this fight, badly.
The final trailer gives us our best look yet at those aliens, and they’re not a pretty sight. They are big, fast, smart, and brutal, and in one nifty sequence, they reveal they can sort of fly. The LEGO Batman Movie helmer has assembled quite a cast at hand to help him make the transition from animation to live-action, with Pratt in the lead role as a man with nothing short of the fate of humanity on his shoulders.
Pratt, of course, is no stranger to aliens, but these beasties aren’t the lovable misfits of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise. The conceit of The Tomorrow War is that Earth gets a grim message from a group of time-travelers who break the bummer news that the world of the future is on the verge of collapse after a brutal and costly war with aliens. Pratt’s Dan Forester is a high school teacher and family man, with a problematic relationship with his father, Slade (J.K. Simmons), and a deep love for a daughter he’ll do anything to protect. Hence him zooming off into the future to fight in a war.
Joining Pratt, Strahovski, and Simmons are Betty Gilpin, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Sam Richardson, Edwin Hodge, Jasmine Mathews, Theo Von, and Keith Powers.
Check out the final trailer below. The Tomorrow War is due to hit Prime Video on July 2.
