Civilians rather than superheroes saving the day feels timely given the centrality of essential workers in the fight against Covid-19. In The Tomorrow War, soldiers from the future appear in the present to announce that, thirty years from now, we’re fighting an inhuman enemy and perilously close to becoming extinct.

Among those recruited are Dan Forester (Chris Pratt), who travels to the year 2051 for the sake of his young daughter. He’s joined by his estranged father James (a kick-ass J. K. Simmons), Col. Muri Forester, (The Predator actress Yvonne Strahovski), fellow civilian and comic relief Charlie (Veep star Sam Richardson), and Keith Powers as Major Greenwood – among many others enlisted to repel the alien invasion.

Heralding the live-action debut of director Chris McKay, The Tomorrow War looks to be an epic science-fiction movie packed with action, emotion, and out-of-this-world special effects. Put another way, if you’re a fan of Jurassic Park, The Terminator, or Independence Day, you should love this film.

Read on below as we detail how to watch The Tomorrow War online and start streaming this highly-anticipated Amazon Original from anywhere now.
