The actor celebrates his new movie's Amazon streaming success: "I'm feeling pumped, to say the least, and filled with gratitude."

Chris Pratt celebrated the birth of America with fond memories of wreaking havoc around the world.

The Tomorrow War star shared a new Instagram video over the Fourth of July weekend, praising fans for making the Amazon sci-fi action flick "the No. 1 movie in the world," he said, which had him feeling "pumped" and "filled with gratitude."

"It's broken all records," he explained of the film, which follows a group of time-travelers who visit the present day from the year 2051 to warn of an impending extraterrestrial apocalypse.

"We really just couldn't have done that without each and every one of you. Thank you for watching, thank you for the positive audience reactions. I am so proud of my baby. She's all grown up and terrorizing the world with hideous aliens!"

EW has learned that The Tomorrow War ranked as the No. 1 streaming film across the holiday weekend, and, according to Screen Engine's PostVOD audience summary, ranked as the largest live-action streaming movie of the summer so far. The film also helped Prime Video set record viewership in Brazil, India, France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Australia, Mexico, Argentina, and Japan.
