Chris Pratt: The Tomorrow War is a Story About Second Chances

Actor Chris Pratt is back in the sci-fi action drama The Tomorrow War, a film he has also executive-produced. He describes the film as a story about second chances.

“It’s a story about second chances. Dan (his character in the film) is a guy who feels like he’s always been destined to do something about second chances. Dan is a guy who feels like he’s always been destined to do something too,” said Pratt.

He added: “At one point or another, we have all wondered if the life we are living might not be the one we were meant for.”

To infuse the character with additional nuance and emotional depth, Pratt incorporated elements from his personal life.

“As you see in the film, Dan has a really complicated relationship with his father, and I felt like that was something I could bring my own experiences to,” he says, adding: “Although my situation and Dan’s are quite different, there were definitely a few aspects of this character I mined from my own background.”
