“We’re fighting simultaneous attacks in the last metropolitan areas.” Sony has finally debuted an actual trailer for the sci-fi fan film The 5th Wave, which has been marketed and designed from the start for the fans of the book series.
The 5th Wave is the first movie adapted from The 5th Waveseries of science fiction books, starringChloë Grace Moretz as a girl in the middle of an alien invasion trying to find her missing brother. The cast includes Liev Schreiber, Maika Monroe, Nick Robinson, Maggie Siff, Maria Bello and Ron Livingston. They’re trying to push this as the next big sci-fi alien invasion thriller, but it looks like a cheesy mash-up of Independence Day andFalling Skies, or something like that. Not really my kind of sci-fi. You?
