“The others see our hope as a weakness… but they’re wrong!”
Cringe Chills! Here’s the first trailer — or rather, international sneak peek — for J Blakeson’s upcoming sci-fi THE 5th WAVE starring Chloë (diaeresis, bitch!) Grace Moretz, Ray Donovan and Tara Knowles. Based on Rick Yancey’s acclaimed YA series I’ve never read, 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 reminded me of The Host, and I don’t like being reminded of The Host. However, the premise is intriguing and the cast is solid so I’m looking forward to seeing more footage. Nick Robinson, Ron Livingston, Alex Roe, Maika Monroe and Zackary Arthur also star. The 5th Wave is scheduled to open in theaters January 16.
