5th Wave Trailer Thoughts

The first 5th Wave trailer has finally been released!

It was released earlier today, I have the trailer below!

The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

Publisher–G.P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers 

Released May 7, 2013

imageSummary: After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one.

Now, it’s the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth’s last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker.

Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brother—or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up.


I really liked this trailer. It got to the point of the story and showed just enough, but didn’t really spoil much. I think Chloe Grace Moretz will be amazing as Cassie Sullivan by the look of this first trailer. With the other actors/actresses they have chosen for the other roles, they are spot-on to how I imagined them when reading the book. Having read this book back in 2013, I forgot some of what happened in the book, but from this trailer and what I do remember from the book, it looks like its going to be a very faithful adaptation.

What do you think of the trailer?

If you have read The 5th Wave what are your thoughts?

& If you haven’t read The 5th Wave, does this trailer encourage you to pick up the book or see the movie?

I for one am very excited for this movie.
