A brief teaser for Amazon’s upcoming sci-fi flick The Tomorrow War has landed online and it looks… vague. 

From what we can tell, the premise involves time travel and Chris Pratt leading a military group against an invading alien force. It looks like a solid popcorn actioner that will fill the blockbuster void left by Top Gun: Maverick, which previously occupied The Tomorrow War’s July 2nd release date.  Check out the teaser below:

While the teaser gives us little to go on outside of Pratt, a voiceover, and some good-looking explosions, we also have an official synopsis to provide some much-needed context. Based on this, The Tomorrow War could be a great piece of escapism.
