The new trailer for The 5th Wave, a young adult sci-fi book to movie adaptation, was released on September 14th, 2015. In The 5th Wave aliens invade the earth, bringing death and destruction in five different waves.
Earlier this month Sony Pictures, the studio behind the movie, released an International Sneak Peek which gave us the first glimpse at what to expect from the upcoming movie. And now, just two weeks later, we have the first official trailer.
This new trailer starts off at the beginning of the 1st wave as our main character Cassie sits in class when the power shuts off and a plane falls out of the sky. They go on to learn that an alien spacecraft has entered the atmosphere and that's the last time anything was normal. Watch the trailer down below!
This trailer was everything I wanted. You get the main storyline from it with shots of all the important characters like Cassie (Chloë Grace Moretz), Sammy (Zackary Arthur), Colonel Vosch (Liev Schreiber), and Ben Parish (Nick Robinson), a couple scenes of Cassie with Evan Walker (Alex Roe), and a quick scene of Ben fighting with Ringer (Maika Monroe). We get a look at Camp Ashpit where Cassie and her family head to after the invasion. We also get a better look at Camp Haven, an Air Force base where children are trained to become soldiers. There's a good sense of Cassie's character in this trailer which is something I really wanted portrayed because she was a great character in the book.
The 5th Wave is set to release in the US January 15th, 2016. As of this article no other official release dates are known.
