The Tomorrow War
Work In Progress
The Tomorrow War is a 2021 Amazon Prime science fiction action film directed by Chris McKay and produced by David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, Don Granger, David S. Goyer, Jules Daly, and Adam Kolbrenner from a script written by Zach Dean. The film stars Chris Pratt as James Daniel "Dan" Forester Jr., a teacher and former Special Forces soldier who along with a mix of present-day military personnel and civilians, are sent 30 years into the future to fight an alien species that threatens the human race with extinction. The cast includes Yvonne Strahovski, J.K. Simmons, Betty Gilpin, Sam Richardson, Edwin Hodge, Jasmine Mathews, Ryan Kiera Armstrong, Keith Powers, and Seychelle Gabriel. The film was originally scheduled by Paramount Pictures for a theatrical release in December of 2020, but premiered on the Amazon Prime streaming service on July 2, 2021.
The following weapons were used in the film The Tomorrow War:
IWI Desert Eagle Mark XIX
Kimber Warrior SOC
Dan Forester Jr. (Chris Pratt) brings his personal Kimber Warrior SOC fitted with a Surefire X300 and extended magazine release when he is drafted and uses it as his sidearm throughout the film. He uses it most prominently during the first encounter with the Whitespikes in Miami Beach and during the climax in the Russian Arctic.
Walther PPQ M2
Muri Forester (Yvonne Strahovski), as well as several soldiers from the future can be seen armed with an unknown Glock-type handgun, likely Glock 19s, though there is rarely a good look given at any.
BCM rifles (as the "MK III" and "MK IV")
The main rifles issued to conscripted soldiers sent forward in time are modified BCM carbines with HERA Arms CQR furniture. They are seen with various accessories, including Trijicon ACOG scopes, Trijicon SRO reflex sights in offset mounts, V Seven Helios linear compensators, Mission First Tactical 30-round magazines, and Inforce Gen2 WMLs. As seen in the image below, Xtreme Props, which supplied the weapons for the production, built two different BCM rifle designs: the "MK III", which has an 8" barrel, and the "MK IV", which has a 14.5" barrel. Since the weapons' rail handguards are completely covered by BCM rail cover sections, it is not clear whether they are BCM KMR (KeyMod) or MCMR (M-LOK) rails.
Bravo Company BCM4 / Geissele URG-I
Different BCM rifles are used by the team at the end of the movie during the mission in the Arctic. These rifles are 10.3" Geissele URG-I upper receiver groups with the MK16 Rail, fitted to Bravo Company BCM4 lower receiver groups with the BCM Gunfighter Mod 1 SOPMOD stock. The rifles are also equipped with Trijicon MRO red dot sights on Geissele super precision mounts, a Streamlight Protac weaponlights, Magpul PMAGs, MS3 strap slings, Insight AN/PEQ-15, and Rugged Micro 30 7.62 suppressors.
F&D Defense FD338
Beretta 1301 Tactical
X Products Can Cannon/Fightlite Raider
Soldiers are seen using AR-15 style launchers to subdue the alien queen. These appear to be X Products Can Cannons, blank-fired, projectile-launching AR-15 uppers designed to fire 12 oz soda cans. The lower receivers of these launchers appear to be FightLite Raider lowers as shown by their "traditional stock" grips and their shortened magazine wells. The magazines used in these launchers are X-Products X-15 skeletonized drum magazines, standing in for a spool of cable for the harpoons they fire in the movie.
The HMMWVs used by soldiers in the future are fitted with Browning M2HBs mounted on top.
General Electric M61A2
F-22 Raptors are seen with General Electric M61A2 cannons. The film uses actual footage, including cockpit shots via GoPro, of the US Air Force's F-22 Demonstration and Heritage Flight Team for both takeoff and some flight sequences.
General Dynamics GAU-17/A
Modified UH-60 Black Hawks in 2059 are seen with door-mounted General Dynamics GAU-17/A miniguns as their defensive armament.
General Dynamics GAU-19/A
Drones in 2059 are armed with General Dynamics GAU-19/A rotary cannons.
