In theaters January 15, 2016 THE 5TH WAVE is… “a thriller that 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 Day mixing various genres from sci-fi to horror.
