Amazon Prime Video is stepping up its game when it comes to landing big-name movies. The streaming platform has acquired Paramount’s big budget sci-fi movie Tomorrow War which was originally set for theaters earlier last year. Now, the Chris Pratt film will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on July 2.
“The Tomorrow War will be a global event that will surprise and delight our customers around the world,” said Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios. “Director Chris McKay has brilliantly crafted this unique, action-packed sci-fi escape that will keep audiences on the edge of their seats and tug on their heart strings with its father-daughter storyline. We couldn’t be happier to continue our relationship with Chris Pratt—who brings such dynamic star power to the film—along with David Ellison and the Skydance team, as we share this exciting film with fans.”
Tomorrow War stars Pratt (who is also EP on the film) as Father Dan Forester who partners with a scientist to help prevent disaster from happening after a team of time travelers from 2051 come back to warn them of future events.
This is the latest major film to land at Amazon, following after other big titles like Coming 2 America and Borat Subsequent Moviefilm.
