Amazon's Chris Pratt Sci-Fi Movie The Tomorrow War Gets July 2 Release Date

The time-travelling sci-fi action film also stars Betty Gilpin and JK Simmons.


Amazon has confirmed the release date for the sci-fi action movie The Tomorrow War. The movie, which stars Chris Pratt, will release worldwide on Amazon Prime Video on July 2.

The Tomorrow War will be one of the biggest movies that Amazon has released to date. The film was originally due to be released theatrically last summer, but it was pulled due to the pandemic. In January, it was confirmed that Amazon had secured the rights to release it, with the studio's winning bid reportedly as much as $200 million.

The movie is set in 2051, when the human race is losing badly in a war against deadly alien invaders. In a final attempt to fight back, time travel is used to recruit skilled soldiers and civilians from the past, including a high school teacher played by Pratt.

The Tomorrow War also stars Betty Gilpin, JK Simmons, and Mary Lynn Rajskub. It's directed by Adam McKay (The Lego Batman Movie). We have yet to see a trailer, but with the release less than three months away, that can be expected soon.

This is the latest movie that was originally intended for a theatrical release that Amazon has picked up for streaming in the last few months. In March, it released the comedy sequel Coming 2 America, while the Tom Clancy adaptation Without Remorse arrives on April 30.
