On Sunday, the 42-year-old actor shared a video on Instagram thanking fans for watching the movie and all of the positive reactions. The Tomorrow War premiered on Amazon Prime Video on Friday. 

Per Screen Engine's PostVOD audience summary, the film ranks as the biggest live-action streaming movie of the summer, starting with their summer reporting in May.

"I'm feeling pumped, to say the least, and filled with gratitude," he said in the video, taking time out from his relaxation at the beach. "If you haven't had a chance to see the movie, check it out. I'm so proud of my baby, she's all grown up and terrorizing the world with hideous aliens."
