There’s not much to the trailer for The Host…that’s why it’s called a ‘teaser.’ We hear Saoirse Ronan in voice-over talking about how the Earth is now at peace and everything is all sunshine and roses now that aliens have taken the place of humans. But if you’re waiting to see anything from the film, you’ll have to wait a while longer.
“The Host is a riveting story about the survival of love and the human spirit in a time of war. Our world has been invaded by an unseen enemy. Humans become hosts for these invaders, their minds taken over while their bodies remain intact. Most of humanity has succumbed. When Melanie (Saoirse Ronan), one of the few remaining “wild” humans, is captured, she is certain it is her end. Wanderer, the invading “soul” who has been given Melanie’s body, was warned about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the glut of senses, the too-vivid memories.
But there was one difficulty Wanderer didn’t expect: the former tenant of her body refusing to relinquish possession of her mind.
When outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off on a dangerous and uncertain search for the man they both love.”
The Host is based on Stephenie Meyer’s (The Twilight Saga) alien invasion book and is set for release on March 29, 2013. Andrew Niccol wrote and directed The Host; Saoirse Ronan, Jake Abel, Max Irons, William Hurt, Diane Kruger, Chandler Canterbury, and Boyd Holbrook star.
