Exactly when you think The Tomorrow War is finished — it isn’t! Dan (Pratt) gets the mysterious serum from his future grown-up girl (Yvonne Strahovski) and takes it back to the past to kill the White Spike outsiders before they can assume control over the planet.
We get a vital scene of thousands of White Spikes massing together to get to Dan before he twists back on schedule. The scale is epic, and climatic… and afterward we’re back in (nearly) our time, with a stunned Dan holding the outsider killing toxin and 40 minutes left in the film.
Dan then, at that point selects a ragtag bunch, including individual future warriors Charlie (Sam Richardson) and Dorian (Edwin Hodge), just as his super-buff father, James (J.K. Simmons). The genuine finish of the film follows the gathering making a beeline for frozen Russia to kill off the first resting White Spikes before they awaken and increase, and the genuine climatic closure has Simmons and Pratt battling a solitary White Spike together.
That shift was extremely purposeful. Talking with/Film, McKay shared his musings behind the adjustment of scale and a definitive completion. “These people that we meet in the beginning of the movie, I wanted them to come back,” McKay explained. “Charlie in the original version of the movie dies. Dorian dies in the original version of the movie earlier. I wanted all those people to come back in a meaningful way.”
