The Tomorrow War is a 2021 American military science fiction film directed by Chris McKay. It is produced by David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, Don Granger, David S. Goyer, Jules Daly, and Adam Kolbrenner, and written by Zach Dean. The film stars Chris Pratt (who also executively produced), Yvonne Strahovski, J. K. Simmons, Betty Gilpin, and follows a mix of present-day soldiers and civilians sent into the future to fight an alien army.

Originally set for theatrical release by Paramount, the film's distribution rights were acquired by Amazon due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and digitally released on July 2, 2021 via Amazon Prime Video. The Tomorrow War received mixed reviews from critics, with praise for the concept, action and performances but criticism aimed towards its derivative execution.

In December 2022, biology teacher and former Green Beret Dan Forester fails to get a job at a prestigious research center. While watching the World Cup, soldiers from the year 2051 arrive to warn that humanity is on the brink of extinction due to a war with alien invaders referred to as the "Whitespikes". In response, members of the world's militaries are sent into the future via a wormhole device called the "Jumplink", but fewer than 20% survive, prompting the introduction of an international draft. A year later, with no visible progress made, an anti-war movement forms and demands that the draft be abolished.

Dan receives a notice that he has been drafted and reports with other draftees to basic training. Dan deduces with fellow draftee Charlie that to prevent a paradox, those drafted have already died before the war starts. The draftees are sent forward in time to a battlefield on Miami Beach but few survive, having been dropped at the incorrect location above the city. The field commander, Col. Forester, orders the draftees to rescue nearby lab personnel before the area is sterilized. The draftees discover the lab personnel are already dead but recover their research. Dan radios to command about the situation, but is told that no help will be sent to rescue the stranded troops. Nearly everyone dies, except for Charlie, Dan, and a soldier named Dorian.
