Determined to save the world for his young daughter, Dan teams up with a brilliant scientist (Yvonne Strahovski) and her father (JK Simmons) on a desperate quest to rewrite the fate of the planet.

Woof! Talk about a quick change, huh? I guess you better hit while the iron is still hot, huh? I have yet to see this movie as I was busy watching Fear Street Part One: 1994, which was amazing, by the way. With that said, I’m definitely curious to see what all the hype is about.
Amazon bought The war of tomorrow from Skydance for a sum of $ 200 million. While that’s a steep price, it’s the price of doing business when you want to build your blockbuster movie library. After all, someone has to keep streaming services like Netflix and Disney + on their toes. A little healthy competition is great for the entertainment business, even if subscription fees to so many platforms put pressure on consumers’ wallets. Choose your entertainment platforms wisely I guess.
