Watch Chloe Moretz in The 5th Wave Trailer, the Latest Dystopian YA Novel Adaptation
[Video removed due to request by Sony.]
This trailer for the Chloe Moretz-fronted dystopian film The 5th Wave features our heroine surviving a gritty world after an alien invasion: getting separated from her family, finding an assault rifle and some rations, trying to find and save her little brother, and meeting a couple of cute boys along the way (and kissing at least one of them). In other words, it’s a beat-for-beat recreation of the best of the YA Dystopian Novel parody Twitter account. Also, it’s based on a book that’s the first in a trilogy, because of course it is.
Critics have compared The 5th Wave books to Twilight except with aliens instead of vampires, so that’ll be … something. Have you read these books? What do you think about the trailer?
