5th Wave trailer: Chloe Grace Moretz faces off against an alien invasion

Posted on

First, they wiped out the power. Then, an earthquake hit, causing worldwide devastation. Third, a massive epidemic, spreading across the globe. And for the fourth wave, the alien invaders responsible for all this chaos finally descended to Earth — with the ability to inhabit human bodies. So the question is: What is the fifth wave going to look like?

In the new trailer for The 5th Wave, Chloe Grace Moretz stars as Cassie, a teenager who’s survived the first four parts of a systematic alien invasion. Now, she’s on the run, desperately trying to find and save her younger brother.

Based on Rick Yancey’s novel and directed by J Blakeson, The 5th Wave also stars Nick Robinson (Jurassic World) as Cassie’s high school crush Ben Parish, a.k.a. “Zombie,” and Alex Roe as the mysterious stranger she meets while on the run.

The 5th Wave will hit theaters on Jan. 15.
