Chloe Grace Moretz joins humanity in the fight to stay alive once aliens invade in the upcoming science fiction film The 5th Wave.
The Atlanta-filmed movie is based on the best-selling young adult trilogy by Rick Yancey. In it, we’ll get to see Earth face an alien invasion through the eyes of 16-year-old Cassie (Moretz). The extraterrestrials have already knocked out the world’s power grid (1st Wave: Darkness); caused unnatural natural disasters (2nd Wave: Destruction); saw to it that an unstoppable virus spread throughout humanity (3rd Wave: Infection); and finally, they joined the ranks of humanity, walking among their enemies and virtually undetectable (4th Wave: Invasion).
Watch the intense trailer to find out what the 5th wave is, and whether or not humans can survive it, below:
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.
Along with Moretz, the film stars: Nick Robinson (Melissa & Joey), Liev Schreiber (Ray Donovan), Maika Monroe (It Follows), Maria Bello (MacFarland, USA), Maggie Siff (Mad Men), Ron Livingston (Boardwalk Empire) and Alex Roe.
