- “The Tomorrow War” debuts on Amazon Prime Video on July 2.
- Chris Pratt fights deadly aliens in this sci-fi blockbuster directed by Chris McKay.
- Prime Video costs $9/month on its own, or $13/month as part of an Amazon Prime membership.
Pratt plays an ex-military family man who is drafted by time travelers to fight a war against aliens 30 years in the future. The movie is directed by Chris McKay, whose previous credits include “The Lego Batman Movie” and “Robot Chicken.”
“The Tomorrow War” was originally scheduled to be released in December 2020 by Paramount Pictures and Skydance Media, but the premiere was delayed due to COVID-19, and the global distribution rights were acquired by Amazon Studios.
During a recent interview with Reuters, Pratt requested viewers’ undivided attention while streaming the movie at home and recommended putting your phone away to get the full experience. “Give yourself that gift, honestly,” Pratt said. “When you’re paying the money to go to the theater… you’re buying a two-hour escape from your phone and I think you can give yourself that at home if you’re a little bit disciplined.”
