An alien race called the Others is circling the planet and threatening to wipe out the Earth. Actress Chloe Grace Moretz and director J Blakeson team up to bring the frightening story to the silver screen in the new movie, The 5th Wave. The Others take out the power grid, cause a huge earthquake, spread a deadly disease, and even control the bodies of humans. These separate waves of attack have put humanity on the brink of extinction, and there is still one more wave coming for the remaining survivors.
Filming for the movie started in October of 2014 in Atlanta, Georgia. Three months later, a planned bus explosion caused more damage than the film crew had expected. Because of the explosion, more than 40 storefront windows blew out, ceilings fell, and another store caught on fire. The production company promised they would pay for the damage.
The movie is based on the popular science fiction book series of the same name written by Rick Yancey. If The 5th Wave proves successful at the box office, expect more films of the series to be produced. In the meantime, do not miss the arrival of the aliens’ last wave of attack in The 5th Wave, coming out this month.
