Let Me In and Carrie‘s Chloe Moretz battles the impending alien apocalypse in Sony’s The 5th Wave, an adaptation of the bestselling novel that’s the first book in a planned trilogy by Rick Yancey.
In theaters January 22, 2016, “The thriller centers on 16-year-old Cassie (Moretz), who’s on the run after fave waves of increasingly deadly attacks that 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 fifth wave, she meets a young man who may become her final hope.”
The footage for the trailer is pretty intense stuff, showing how the aliens slowly destroy our planet before bring on the “fifth wave” of their attack. It’s sort of like a not-so-fun Independence Daymixing various genres from sci-fi to horror.
Releasing into UK cinemas 22nd January 2016
