Premiere Screening of The 5th Wave

The 5th Wave is a science fiction thriller film based on #RickYancey's eponymous novel. Four waves of increasingly deadly alien attacks have left most of Earth devastated. Against a backdrop of fear & distrust, Cassie Sullivan (#ChloëGraceMoretz) is on the run, desperately trying to save her younger brother Sammy. As she prepares for the fifth wave, Cassie teams up with a young man named Evan Walker (#AlexRoe), who may become her final hope – if she can only trust him. This film is set to be released on January 14, 2016. This is alien-invasion-by-the-numbers, while the tone can be a little cloying, veering between heart-wrenching moments of family love-and-loss to the requisite blossoming youthful romance. Of course, the film’s closing scene leaves the survivors primed for a sequel. The 5th Wave is the first novel in a trilogy – thus there is a fair chance a sequel will be along in a year or so. Regardlessly I can say that this was definitely an emotion feel-good movie to start of #2016's premiere! I'd give 4.5 🌟 just bcoz The 5th Wave inevitably has some familiar elements: the "teens survive invasion/save the world" narrative, #TheMazeRunner + #TheHungerGames + #Divergent (I'm on #TeamBenParish BTW 😅). Thanks to my sis @sweetpeareen n @klips_my for d invites! 😰😱👽🔫🎥🎬
