BREAKING: The official 5th Wave Movie trailer leaked online!

Sony has asked fans to not share the leaked trailer.


We were not ready for this! Late last night, the official movie trailer for the upcoming movie, ‘The 5th Wave’ leaked online, giving Wavers their first true glimpse at the highly anticipated film.

EDIT: Our friends at Sony have asked that we DO NOT share the movie trailer as it is leaked. As such, we’ve removed it from the site:

We are trying to contain the leak at this moment until the final asset is available. If you would refrain from sharing until we launch the official trailer, it would be greatly appreciated. We’ll be sure to give you a heads up as to when that will happen.

Although this didn’t come through Sony’s official channels, this is definitely the official 5th Wave movie trailer. Our original prediction was the the movie trailer would be released in the week leading up to the next Maze Runner movie. Perhaps Sony will officially release it sooner because of the leak?

‘The 5th Wave’ is a film adaptation of Rick Yancey’s popular science fiction novel of the same name. The book was published in May of 2013. Sony Pictures bought the rights to the film that same month. Since then, the book has reached the best-seller’s list several times. A year ago the sequel, The Infinite Sea was published by Penguin Teen.

‘The 5th Wave’ follows teenager Cassie Sullivan (played by Chloe Grace Moretz in the movie) as she struggles to survive through an alien invasion. The aliens attack humanity through four different stages–or “waves”–and are preparing to launch their deadliest attack yet, the 5th Wave. When Cassie’s brother Sammy (played by Zackary Arthur) is kidnapped by the aliens, she works to get him back before it’s too late.

The movie is scheduled to be released on January 29, 2016 and will include major actors such as Nick Robinson (‘Jurassic World’) and Liev Schreiber.
