With The Hunger Games franchise coming to an end, for now at least, it’s time for Chloe Grace-Moretz to take the baton for big female action lead in Sony’s offering in this genre. The 5th Wave is a pre-apocalyptic / alien invasion movie reminiscent of a Dean Koontz book story, and it doesn’t look too bad, albeit much of the same stuff we’ve seen for years.
The official trailer and synopsis is below. The 5th Wave is in cinemas from 15th January 2016.
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 (Chloë Grace Moretz) 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.
