The Tomorrow War streaming debut

Update: Amazon is poised to buy The Tomorrow War starring Chris Pratt, after Skydance and Paramount shopped the sci-fi action flick to major streamers. Though the deal is not yet finalized, Variety reports that the deal could total roughly $200 million. The original story follows below.

The Tomorrow War, a sci-fi action film executive produced by and starring Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy), has a great sci-fi hook: when Earth finds itself outgunned during an alien invasion, a scientist figures out how to draft soldiers from the past to save humanity’s future. That sounds like an Independence Day-level blockbuster waiting to happen, the type of material that would be the most effective on a big screen. But according to a new report, Paramount and Skydance are currently hoping to sell the movie off to the highest streaming bidder.

thor love and thunder cast chris pratt

Chris Pratt, the internet’s current least favorite Chris, is joining the much more beloved Chris Hemsworth in Thor: Love and Thunder. Pratt’s Star-Lord/Peter Quill will appear in the Taika Waititi sequel, which makes sense since Avengers: Endgame concluded with Thor jetting off with the Guardians of the Galaxy. That said, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 doesn’t have an official release date yet, so it’s not exactly clear how all of this lines up on the Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline.

Back to the Future Problem

The original Back to the Future is largely considered to be a perfect movie. It’s a tight, clever, and fun screenplay that pays off everything it sets up in a very satisfying way, and Robert Zemeckis directed and co-wrote the hell out of it with Bob Gale. However, there’s one long-standing question that fans have pondered over the years, and after Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn called attention to it recently, Bob Gale himself explained the “problem” away.

The first reactions are out for Pixar’s latest animated film Onward, and while the fantasy-comedy film doesn’t seem to be casting a spell on all critics, there’s plenty of reason to be excited for the road trip movie starring Tom Holland and Chris Pratt.
