Watch The Tomorrow War
The science fiction action movie The Tomorrow War follows a group of time travelers as they attempt to hold off a world-ending alien invasion. In December 2022, biology teacher and former Green Beret, Dan Forester, fails to get a job at the Army Research Laboratory. During the broadcast of the World Cup, soldiers from the year 2051 arrive to warn that, in their time, humanity is on the brink of extinction due to a war with alien invaders referred to as the "Whitespikes." In November 2048, the Whitespikes suddenly appear in northern Russia, their means of arrival on Earth undetected by satellite or radar, and proceed to kill the majority of the human race within three years. In response, the world's present-day militaries are sent into the future via a wormhole device called the "Jumplink," but fewer than 30% survive their seven-day deployment, prompting an international draft. Dan receives his draft notice and tells his wife Emmy and daughter, Muri. Emmy suggests that they should run and talks Dan into visiting his estranged father James, a mechanical engineer, for help in removing the draft band attached to his arm. Dan's father left him and his mother after he returned from the Vietnam War because he felt it was dangerous to remain with them. Angry, Dan says he does not want his father's help and promptly leaves. Dan reports to basic training with other draftees where they are briefed by future soldiers. Dan deduces with fellow draftee Charlie, a scientist, that all draftees have died before the war starts to prevent a paradox. The draftees are sent forward in time to a battlefield on Miami Beach but few survive arrival. With the city already lost, their commander orders the draftees to rescue nearby lab personnel before the area is sterilized. They discover the lab personnel are already dead but recover their research. All but Dan, Charlie, and battle hardened draftee Dorian (on his 3rd deployment); survive the Whitespikes and bombing.
