Chris Pratt plays a man transported 30 years into the future in order to save mankind in the action-packed new trailer for The Tomorrow World.
In the film, Pratt plays Don Forester, a teacher and family man who time travels decades into the future in order to join the battle against an alien species wrecking havoc on civilization.
The teaser begins with a bang, with aircrafts flying over a burning city as a female solider declares, ‘We are fighting a war 30 years into the future.’

Pratt’s character in the film works with a band of soldiers to time travel 30 years forward to 2051 with a key message to deliver in the battle against aliens invading the earth.

Pratt is joined in the cast of the time-traveling film by Yvonne Strahovski, who plays a scientist; J.K. Simmons, who plays Forester’s estranged dad; and Betty Gilpin.
The film was slated to debut late last year, but was sidelined amid the coronavirus pandemic that shut down theaters. It was subsequently sold to Amazon in a deal estimated around $200 million earlier this year, Variety reported.
Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke called the film ‘a global event that will surprise and delight our customers around the world.’
