It wouldn’t be summer at the movies without sci-fi action blockbusters. Director Chris McKay (The Lego Batman Movie) and star Chris Pratt fill that gap with The Tomorrow War, which imagines a near future where a near-apocalyptic conflict with an alien species forces humanity to recruit soldiers from the population of today’s present. Threads of fatalism, family complexities, and hope are threaded through the film among action setpieces and time-travel shenanigans, and Wade and Kevin are on the case to discuss how well the film strikes a balance between heady themes and good old-fashioned blockbuster thrills.
