On his third injury, Sam told the New York Times: "Now it's like, this is a problem.

"They sent in a super doctor who works with the WWE and these athletes, and he kind of adjusted me, set me up, and then I was back and ready to go.

"He adjusted the way I walked, and I was like, 'Wow, that's incredibly helpful.' Some doctors just know physiology, go figure!"

The Tomorrow War follows civilian Dan Forester (Pratt) who finds himself drafted into a future war, the fate of which depends on his ability to confront his past.
