Plot summary

What is The Tomorrow War movie plot?

Here is a short review of "The Tomorrow War" movie plot summary.

In December 2022, biology teacher and Iraq War veteran, Dan Forester (Chris Pratt), fails to get a job at a research center. While watching the World Cup at a Christmas party, soldiers from the year 2051 arrive to warn that humanity is on the brink of extinction due to alien invaders: the Whitespikes. In response, members of the world's militaries are sent into the future, but less than 20% survive, initiating a world wide draft.
After a year of the draft and a growing anti-war movement, there is little hope about humanity's survival. Dan receives a notice that he has been drafted and reports with other draftees to basic training.
The draftees are sent forward in time to Miami Beach but few survive, having been dropped in the incorrect location above the city. The draftees are ordered by Colonel (Yvonne Strahovski) Forester to rescue nearby lab personnel before the area is sterilized. The draftees discover the lab personnel dead but recovers their research. Dan radios to command about the situation, and is instructed to escape the area. Many of the draftees are killed with only a handful able to reach safety.
The survivors wake up in a military encampment in the Dominican Republic. Dan is asked to report to Colonel Forester, who is actually his grown daughter Muri. She requests him to accompany her on a mission to capture a female Whitespike, which are rarer than the male type Dan encountered earlier. Eventually they cage the female, only to find thousands of males descending on their position. As the helicopter with the caged female lifts off, the area becomes chaotic. Dan and Muri escape to a beach and radio for rescue. Dan is brought to the location of the Jumplink out in what is likely the Atlantic Ocean.
