Sci-Fi Novel Has “Waved” Into Theaters

Jan 25, 2016

A peaceful weekday takes a frightening turn when an evil, extraterrestrial species invades planet Earth. The
catastrophe has left homes and families in shambles, and the worst has yet to come. Teenager Cassie Sullivan has miraculously survived the first four waves of disaster, but the aliens have kidnapped the only family she has left. Time is running out for Cassie to overcome the earth-shattering obstacles and rescue her little brother.

The movie is based off the 2013 novel, written by author Rick Yancey. It is titled “The 5th Wave” because the story’s main focus is on the style of invasion. The aliens, also known as “the others”, attempt to destroy Earth in five waves. Wave number one knocked out all electricity. The second wave caused an earthquake beyond our imagination. Wave number three piled up the bodies with worldwide disease. Wave number four is when the aliens begin inhabiting human bodies, causing people to turn against each other in fear of their own lives. Want to find out what disaster the 5th wave brings upon civilization? The book must be read or the movie must be watched to find out.

One incredibly common trend in motion picture entertainment is visualizing novels by transforming them into movies or television series, some becoming far more successful than others. Take the Harry Potter series, for example. The British wizard by the name of Harry Potter and his magic-wielding friends return to Hogwarts school of magic year after year. His adventures were imagined by J.K. Rowling and written over the span of seven books. On November 16, 2001, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was released as a film. Theaters across America had scores of wand-wielding, uniform-wearing followers camping outside the ticket booth, awaiting admission to a dream come true. The film grossed in the United States at over $300 million dollars.

The 5th Wave is a brand new movie release. It hits theaters a few days ago on January 22, 2016. It has been rated PG-13 by The Motion Pictures Association of America (MPAA) for violence and distruction, some sci-fi thematic elements, language, and brief teen partying. Will Cassie survive the apocalyptic invasion and be reunited with her little brother? Find out today.
