Chloë Grace Moretz’s day starts out normal in the newest trailer for “The 5th Wave” but when her high school math class is interrupted by an alien invasion, it’s clear that nothing will be normal again.
“I didn’t know it then, but that was the last normal day of my life,” Moretz says in the latest teaser released Monday.
Based on a young adult novel by Rick Yancey, the sci-fi drama portrays the aftermath of four waves of increasingly deadly attacks that have left most of Earth decimated. Against a backdrop of fear and distrust, Cassie (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 trust him.
“The first wave knocked out all the power,” Moretz’s character reveals in a voiceover. “Then the second wave hit with earthquakes strong enough to shake the entire planet.”
“The 5th Wave” invades theaters Jan. 15, 2016.
