Amazon Prime has released the full trailer for its new original sci-fi action thriller, ” The war of tomorrow“Which will be released worldwide on July 2.
In the trailer, it’s summer 2022 – just 12 months away – at the thrilling Qatar World Cup final, watching a tense game as Brazil play (what looks like) Argentina and it’s 3 -all, with about 90 seconds left. When suddenly, in front of the 80,000-seat Lusail stadium, a time portal opens onto the field. Under the gaze of the world, a team of soldiers from the future emerges from a cloud of sparks and smoke and announces to everyone on Earth that in just 30 years, humanity is facing total annihilation.“We are fighting a war, 30 years in the future”, explains the leader of these soldiers to the perplexed population of our planet. “Our enemy is not human. We need you to fight, ”she said. “In 11 months, all human beings in the future will be wiped off the face of the Earth, unless you help us. ”

There’s an action montage – a lot more than what we saw in the teaser and it looks like Dan has to wear some sort of permanently attached device covering his entire left forearm in order to be able to time jump. Additionally, we take a little more, albeit briefly, look at the aliens wreaking havoc in 2051. They appear to be a cross between an “Edge of Tomorrow” impersonator and possibly an “Alien” xenomorph, hence alien exterminators. classic.
