Adapted from a popular 2013 YA novel by Rick Yancey, Chloe Grace Moretz stars in the alien invasion flick The 5th Wave, out next weekend. Costarring Nick Robinson, Ron Livingston, Maria Bello, and Liev Schrieber, Columbia Pictures hopes to capture the wave of hunger gaming, diverging, and maze running that have made those entries into hits.
Reviews are negative so far with just a 20% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and there doesn’t seem to be much excitement generated around this. As I see it, this has little hope of breaking out like the aforementioned movies. I see this performing similarly to The Giver, which debuted to $12.3 million in the summer of 2014.
The 5th Wave opening weekend prediction: $11.4 million
