In The Tomorrow War trailer, the world is stunned when a group of time travelers arrive from the year 2051 to deliver an urgent message: Thirty years in the future mankind is losing a global war against a deadly alien species. The only hope for survival is for soldiers and civilians from the present to be transported to the future and join the fight. Among those recruited is high school teacher and family man Dan Forester (Chris Pratt). Determined to save the world for his young daughter, Dan teams up with a brilliant scientist (Yvonne Strahovski) and his estranged father (J.K. Simmons) in a desperate quest to rewrite the fate of the planet.

Amazon reportedly paid $200 million for distribution rights to the project originally developed and produced by Skydance Media and Paramount Pictures.

This is the first time that Chris Pratt has executive produced a film. Originally titled ‘Ghostdraft’ it was changed with Pratt saying, ‘The title, “Ghostdraft,” turned out to be problematic for various reasons so we started looking at other options… We went through:
Generation Alien, World War A, Generation Gone, Saving Private Ryaalien, WWZ2 but with As not Zs, HORIZON WHITESPIKE’ before the makers settled on The Tomorrow War.
