Sony has released the first full-length trailer for its new sci-fi thriller The 5th Wave, the upcoming adaptation of Rick Yancey’s hit teen novel, starring Chloe Grace Moretz as a girl in the middle of an alien invasion trying to find her missing brother.

Directed by English filmmaker J Blakeson, the man behind the underrated The Disappearance of Alice Creed, the movie has a solid supporting cast that includes Liev Schreiber, Maika Monroe, Nick Robinson, Maggie Siff, Maria Bello, and Ron Livingston.

The 5th Wave opens on January 15th, 2016. Susannah Grant penned the script.

Um, it did have that “been there, done that” sort of feel. The official plot summary for the film reads as follows:

In The 5th Wave, set in the present day, four waves of increasingly deadly attacks have left most of Earth decimated. Against a backdrop of fear and distrust, 16-year-old Cassie is on the run, desperately trying to save her younger brother. As she prepares for the inevitable and lethal 5th wave, Cassie meets a young man who may become her final hope.
