Sunday brunch goers watch 'The Tomorrow War' film scene in Atlanta

“Apparently aliens are invading brunch,” Korey Felder wrote in his Instastory.

ATLANTA — Imagine attending brunch on a Sunday with your friends and then you look outside the window and spot what appears to be a military fight during the post-apocalyptic era?

That’s what happened at 30 Ivan Allen Jr Blvd. NW to Korey Felder, the owner of oAK Atlanta, an upscale social club in Atlanta.

Felder was enjoying his routine weekend brunch when he spotted pink smoke, military inspired vehicles, and what appeared to be virtual soldiers filming a scene for “The Tomorrow War,” an upcoming movie executive produced by Chris Pratt.

“Apparently aliens are invading brunch,” Felder wrote in his Instastory.  He later shared military cars roaming the streets while doing takes for the film.

Last week, Pratt broke his silence about the movie’s former working title “Ghost Draft."

“This is my first time executive producing on a movie! And I can finally post about it!!! The title 'Ghostdraft,' turned out to be problematic for various reasons so we started looking at other options,” he wrote.

The black and white photo he shared with the caption shows Pratt alongside some of his ghost army.

He didn’t tag the actors in the photograph, but some of the cast members listed on IMDb include Yvonee Strahovski, Betty Gilpin, and Keith Powers.

Production for the Chris McKay-directed film in Atlanta began early September under the basecamp sign “Boneyard.” Some of the filming locations around town include Midtown and Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Some scenes for the upcoming movie are being filmed at Blackhall Studios in DeKalb County.

Pratt also revealed that some of the working titles for the movie that didn’t make the cut.

“World War A,” “Generation Alien” and “Jurassic Draft” were some of the obvious “no’s” for the movie.

"The Tomorrow War" will be released nationwide Dec. 25, 2020.
