My Thoughts on The 5th Wave Trailer

Okay, so before I get into how I feel about The 5th Wave movie trailer, I have to let you guys know that I haven’t yet read The Infinite Sea, so please don’t spoil me. Thanks!

I’m actually very impressed with this trailer. It doesn’t give away too much (*cough* The Scorch Trials *cough*) and it reminded me of how much I enjoyed the first book. It actually made me wish I could re-read the book so I could remember all that happened. Maybe I’ll just stick with picking up the sequel, instead.

The cast, besides the kid who plays Ben Parrish, actually looks really good. The girl that plays Cassie doesn’t look how I imagined her, but I think she fits well and her acting—from what I’ve seen in the trailers—is really good. She’s definitely better than the girl who plays Tris in Divergent, Shailene Woodley. The only reason I’m mentioning Shailene is because Cassie’s, a.k.a. Chloë Grace Moretz’s, voice when she talks to the audience (I can’t remember the name of that particular film technique at this moment and my film major roommate isn’t here right now.) reminds me of Shailene’s awkward child-like voice, but thankfully her voice sounded normal in the actual movie portion of the trailer.

Back to Ben Parrish who is played by Nick Robinson. He’s young. Like ridiculously young. I can’t remember how old Ben’s supposed to be and I’m too lazy to look it up right now, but this kid looks—to borrow a phrase from one of my friends—like a fetus. But no matter how weird I find Ben, Evan totally makes up for that. Alex Roe isn’t exactly how I imagined Evan looking, but I must say, I’m not disappointed. Especially because of that shirtless back scene. *Swoon*

All in all, I will definitely be going to see this in theaters and maybe I’ll even pick up book two before then. Who knows?

What do you think of the trailer? Does it make you want to see the movie? Sound off in the comments.
