Sony has released the first full-length trailer for J Blakeson’s upcoming sci-fi THE 5th WAVE starring Chloë (diaeresis, bitch!) Grace Moretz. Based on Rick Yancey’s acclaimed YA series, the film follows 16-year-old Cassie Sullivan as she tries to survive in a world devastated by the waves of alien invasion that have already decimated the population and knocked humankind back to the Stone Age.
This trailer is much better than the “international sneak peek” that was released a couple of weeks ago, although some of the dialogue (including the voice-over) is very, very close to cheese territory. Moretz is talented, I love sci-fi, so I’m hoping this turned out well. Liev Schreiber, Maggie Siff, Nick Robinson, Ron Livingston, Alex Roe, Maika Monroe and Zackary Arthur also star. The 5th Wave is scheduled to open in theaters January 16.
Starring Chloë Grace Moretz and based on the bestseller: In the new film The 5th Wave, four waves of increasingly deadly attacks have left most of Earth decimated. Against a backdrop of fear and distrust, Cassie is on the run, desperately trying to save her younger brother. As she prepares for the inevitable and lethal 5th wave, Cassie teams up with a young man who may become her final hope – if she can only trust him.
