Watch the First Official Movie Trailer for The 5th Wave, Starring Chloe Grace Moretz

By  | 

Remember how we said The 5th Wave was going to be one of the greatest book-turned-movies of all time? Yeah…well, let us just reiterate that statement, ’cause the film’s first official trailer was just released and it seriously looks amazing!

Based on Ricky Yancey’s best-selling novel, The 5th Wave is about what happens after “four waves of increasingly deadly attacks have left most of Earth decimated. Cassie (Chloe 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.”

Fans of the book series will greatly appreciate how true it seems the filmmakers kept the adaptation. From Sammy’s teddy bear to Evan’s “chocolate brown eyes and thick hair,” they took the little details very seriously. And, as many YA fans will tell you, missing those deets can sometimes be the demise of a film (cough The Mortal Instruments cough).

The 5th Wave hits theaters on January 16, 2016, but you can watch the first official trailer, starring Chloë Grace Moretz, Alex Roe, Nick Robinson, Liev Schreiber and more now!
