Things just got very serious for the latest Stephenie Meyer adaptation, The Host. The film is directed by Andrew Niccol (In Time, Lord of War, Gattaca), and I am hoping that such a talent can make The Host into a very good film, and not give us another god damned Twilight! So far, The Host is looking good.
We have already seen a number of trailers and a featurette, but this new trailer has a lot going for it. The first half, particularly, has plenty of seriousness and a lot of emotion and menace. I haven’t read the book this is based on, but already I can see this being a very interesting film. The cast is terrific, and as I have said, so far The Host is looking very exciting stuff indeed. Check out the brilliant new trailer below.
Directed by Andrew Niccol (In Time, Lord of War) based on the story written by Stephenie Meyer (Twilight), and Meyer is also producing the film.The film stars Saoirse Ronan, Diane Kruger,Max Irons, Jake Abel, William Hurt and Frances Fisher. The Host arrives in UK cinemas 29th March 2013.

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, 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.
