The first trailer for Amazon's new sci-fi action movie The Tomorrow War has been released. The film stars Chris Pratt and it arrives in July.

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 teaser is short but it delivers impressive scenes of a city under attack from an unseen enemy, plus various shots of Pratt walking slowly with a gun, looking very serious. Check the trailer out below:

The Tomorrow War also stars Betty Gilpin, JK Simmons, and Mary Lynn Rajskub. It's directed by Chris McKay (The Lego Batman Movie), and it hits 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.

It's 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.
