Chloe Grace Moretz battles with aliens in the new sci-fi movie, ?The 5th Wave.? In the movie, Moretz will play the role of Cassie Sullivan, a fearless 16-year-old trying to fight off the aliens invading Earth while trying to save his brother, shared by International Business Times. Now that?s what you would call extreme multi-tasking.
The 18-year-old actress has had an amazing list of incredible roles through the years such as ?a foul-mouthed vigilante, an eternally young vampire, and a telekinetic teenager,? shared by Dread Central. But this more serious role for the actress may give her a new and exciting challenge to conquer.
In the movie, ?The 5th Wave,? aliens known as the Others, have taken over much of the planet creating a post-apocalyptic world that Cassie has to live in. The trailer shows each wave of the Others? attack, which consists of different types of disaster that created the post-apocalyptic Earth. The first wave, darkness, includes global power failure. The second wave, destruction, involves natural disasters including tidal waves and floods coming out from nowhere. The third wave, infection, is a spread of an unknown disease which kills majority of the people on earth. While the fourth wave is when the ?invasion? will begin, posted by International Business Times.
The trailer also describes the Others as aliens who can ?inhabit humans and control their actions during the invasion,? according to International Business Times. ?If the fifth wave succeeds, humanity will be wiped from the face of the earth,? says Ray Donovan, the character from the movie who will be played by Live Schreiber.
?The 5th Wave? will also star Ron Livingston, Maika Monroe, Maggie Siff and Nick Robinson, based on the young adult sci-fi novel by Rick Yancey. The invasion is scheduled to hit theaters January 15, 2016.
