Chloe Moretz leads the movie, based on the first book in a trilogy (naturally) by Rick Yancey. Moretz plays Cassie, who takes fights back after Earth comes under attack from The Others, who have one goal in mind: wiping out humanity. Here’s the official synopsis:
In The 5th Wave, set in the present day, four waves of increasingly deadly attacks have left most of Earth decimated. Against a backdrop of fear and distrust, 16-year-old Cassie is on the run, desperately trying to save her younger brother. As she prepares for the inevitable and lethal 5th wave, Cassie meets a young man who may become her final hope.
Co-starring Maika Monroe, Liev Schreiber and Ron Livingston, the film opens on January 15, 2016, and intriguingly is directed by J. Blakeson, the man behind the underrated “The Disappearance Of Alice Creed.” Watch below.
