‘The Tomorrow War’ Writer Zach Dean on the Real-World Issues That Inspired His Sci-fi Adventure [Interview]

The Tomorrow War is a big action movie full of time travel, monsters, special effects, and everything else you’d expect from a popcorn-powered summer release.

And it’s also about Chris Pratt shooting aliens, but who says you can’t have both? Screenwriter Zach Dean agrees with that much. Speaking with him on Zoom ahead of the film’s rel...

‘The Tomorrow War’ Director Chris McKay on Making a ’90s-Style Blockbuster in 2021 [Interview]

The Tomorrow War may be a 2021 release, but it feels like a throwback. It would’ve been right at home in the ’90s, and director Chris McKay is a-okay with that. It’s a premise that could be preposterous: visitors from the future arrive in the modern day to recruit soldiers for a war against an alien race that hasn’t even started yet. But the film takes any potential silliness in stride, taking the premise seriously even while the characters themselves trade enough jokes to keep the mood light. ...

But do you know who doesn’t care about that? Betty Gilpin. “I was very happy to be eating bagels in baggy s...

Maybe you started recognizing him after he won an Oscar for his terrifying work in Whiplash. Hell, maybe you’ve been recognizing him for years — few actors are as busy, and fewer are so consistently reliable. Simmons has a supporting role in the new science fiction film The Tomorrow War, the kind of small-but-important role he...
