THE 5TH WAVE is an upcoming 2016 science fiction thriller film directed by J Blakeson (The Disappearance Of Alice Creed) and written by Susannah Grant (Erin Brockovich, Pocahontas) based on the 2013 novel of same name by Rick Yancey. The film stars Chloë Grace Moretz, Nick Robinson, Alex Roe, Maika Monroe, Liev Schreiber, and Zackary Arthur.
In the film, four waves of increasingly deadly attacks have left most of Earth decimated.

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.
