When the aliens come, they won't just land and ask to be taken to our leaders. Instead, according to the science fiction invasion flick The 5th Wave, they'll take their time, slowly taking over Earth with a series of tactical strikes.

Based on Rick Yancey's YA novel of the same name, the movie starring Chloe Grace Moretz was released in theaters last January but is now available to invade your home. Viewable now via digital format, with DVD/BD hitting May 3, The 5th Wave follows teenage soldier and survivor Cassie (Moretz) as she reflects back on the various attacks from visiting extraterrestrials that knocked out power, infected humans and eventually began replacing those humans with facsimiles.

But that's just the bare bones of the story. Along for the ride is Zombie (played Nick Robinson from Jurassic World), a teen friend of Cassie's who finds himself in the same training camp as her younger brother Sammy (Zackary Arthur).

And in the following deleted scene, revealed exclusively via Blastr, Zombie faces off against his drill sergeant Reznik (Maria Bello). When Reznik pushes Zombie to the breaking point during one of the military training exercises, he pushes back. He finds himself smacked down but then selected as the leader of Squad 53.

Check it out, and let us know what you think of The 5th Wave when you view it on digital format or watch via DVD/BD on May 3.
