Anticipation (Before Trailer): 30/100
Anticipation (After Trailer): 45/100
The anticipation for The 5th Wave would be much higher if it wasn’t being released in Hollywood’s dump month. January films are typically bad. Very bad. To be fair, the most excited I’ll ever get about a movie coming out in January is maybe 50. Maybe.
Chloe Grace Moretz looks to be one of the last hopes for humanity in this post-apocalyptic alien invasion flick. Moretz may save humanity but nothing will save January. Nothing.
(Writer’s Note: Don’t take it personal but we’ll all be seeing Star Wars for the 5th or 6th time anyway.)
