The 5th Wave Trailer

"The others have the ability to inhabit human hosts. They could be anywhere…" Sony Pictures has debuted an official US trailer for the new sci-fi adaptation The 5th Wave, directed by J Blakeson, starring Chloe Moretz as Cassie Sullivan. The film is about an alien invasion of our planet, and the "5th wave" alludes to the progressive waves of their invasion, with the final one being when they apparently finally take over. The other four waves are shown/explained in the trailer. The cast includes Liev Schreiber, Maika Monroe, Nick Robinson, Maggie Siff, Maria Bello, Ron Livingston, Alex Roe & Tony Revolori. This looks okay, but I'm still keeping my expectations very low. "This is our world. Our only choice is to take it back."

Here's the new official US trailer (+ poster) for J Blakeson's The 5th Wave, direct from Sony's YouTube:

In the new film The 5th Wave, four waves of increasingly deadly extra-terrestrial attacks have left most of Earth decimated. Cassie (Chloƫ Grace Moretz) is on the run, desperately trying to save her younger brother. The 5th Wave is directed by English filmmaker J Blakeson, of the films The Disappearance of Alice Creed and the short The Appointment previously. The screenplay is written by Susannah Grant (of Erin Brockovich), adapted from Rick Yancey's novel of the same name. Sony Pictures will release The 5th Wave in select theaters on January 15th, 2016 early next year. For more updates follow @5thWaveMovie.

    Oh great, another one of these. Trailer looks horrible and the plot has been done ten times already. Twilight with Aliens?
  • BNN667
    I can't quite pinpoint exactly why I have no interest in this, maybe there's just too many reasons.
  • rickvanr
    Could be a fun January movie. Zero expectations going in
  • ari smulders
    Into the half of the trailer I thought this could be something, but than it becomes a girlie movie.... Maybe i will download it ...
    • shiboleth
      I like your comment because this seems to be so much European reaction to it ... I won't disclose what made me think that, but I do hope you'll realize where I am getting at ...
    • Tester
      U made it all the way to the middle of the trailer ?
      • ari smulders
        hahaha it wasn't that bad :)
  • Lagoya
    - Whenever they make aliens inhabit the body of humans it means the film makers are lazy and can't be bothered to design aliens and that really pi$$es me off. - I don't want to see anything Liev Schribler is in. Can't stand the guy.

    While at first I was like "hmm, a YA SF film", upon reading the reviews on Amazon & synopsis on Wikipedia... Color me intrigued. It has some adult-level issues at play even if the main protags are pre-teens to teens.
  • shiboleth
    Oh, come on, I wanna see some real aliens ...
  • Lar Rackell
    I'm so tired of things like "the others."
  • Terry Craig
    This might have been watchable in the 2000s (somewhere between The Day After Tomorrow and District 9). But now?
    I liked the other one better...
  • Firefly15
    Looks terrible
  • Venom
    Hunger Games, Divergent, Maze Runner and now this...they all seem like the same freaken formula...I need to create one of this silly books about a young kid who somehow "gets chosen" and then trains.
  • Frank Engelhardt
    "They took everything from me" - but not my bleech (& time) to keep my teeth WHITE !! even after disease was spread across the world....?!?!?
  • Maxim Karagogov
    Looks really stupid.Shame,i like very much LS and Moretz. Have this "The Darkest Hour" vibe,and despite Hirsch-no good.
  • Andrew Geczy
    That trailer was intense. Dunno what you guys were talking about. Yeah it's kinda unbelievable that Moretz is just a bad ass, but she is. I want the next movie she does to be Moretz vs Liam Neeson and we'll see who wins.
  • Bill
    I think Chloe Moretz is uniquely hot... but that's not enough to get my wallet out... looks so "been there done that"
    • Tester
      Dude, she is only 18 years old you perv
      • Bill
        So are many Playboy, Penthouse and Hustler models. What are you, 80?
        • Tester
          Hey, its legal so who am I to say.. Carry on
  • nomad82
    straight to DVD... first clue to a crappy sci-fi is either the aliens are Invisible or they "take over" the human body..
