Chloe Grace Moretz has a serious superhero fixation. After having kicked mountains of bad guy butts in “Kickass,” the actress is now fighting off aliens in the trailer for her new movie, “The 5th Wave.” Read on to for the exclusive trailer and more.
Adapted from the YA series of novels by Rick Yancey, “The 5th Wave” sees a broken and destroyed earth, reeling from four waves of death and destruction from aliens known only as the others. The fifth wave in question is the ultimate subversion, where the aliens possess human bodies to infiltrate the society, and no doubt to hunt the 18-year-old beautiful actress playing the character of ‘Cassie Sullivan.’ Now she must survive in the midst of all the chaos, and tell us how ‘hope is not a weakness’ and such post-apocalyptic cliches.
The trailer also has an angry Liev Schreiber in camo, playing the army character, “Commander Vosch,” who will ‘not allow the aliens into our homes. “The Jurassic World’s” Nick Robins also makes an appearance, and will be seemingly cast as “Ben Parish,” Cassie’s generic love interest who (SPOILER ALERT) has a really interesting character arc in the books.
The very nature of the film makes us question who the heroes are, or whether the characters are all possessed by aliens. And we know that at least one of the characters in the trailer is not as they seem. Can you guess who it is?
“The 5th Wave” is being produced as a trilogy by Columbia Pictures, like every other YA novel that got made into movies. The first movie is set to hit the US screens on Jan. 21, 2016.
