The Host

After this year, The Twilight Saga comes to an end (finally), but that doesn't mean we're done seeing the work of author Stephenie Meyer tossed up onto the big screen. In addition to the trailer for Twilight: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 hitting theaters with The Hunger Games at midnight tonight, now the trailer for the adaptation of The Host has turned up online. The story follows Melanie Stryder (Saoirse Ronan) as one of the last humans fighting back against the invasion of aliens called The Souls who fuse to each person's consciousness and systematically erase their personality and memory, but Stryder won't give up.

Here's the first official trailer for Andrew Niccol's adaptation of The Host, in HD via Yahoo:

Andrew Niccol (In Time, Gattaca, Lord of War) wrote & directed the adaptation of The Host, based on the sci-fi novel of the same name by Twilight author Stephanie Meyer. Saoirse Ronan stars as Melanie Stryder, one of the last people fighting against an invading parasitic alien methodically taking over humans. This also stars Diane Kruger, William Hurt, Jake Abel, Max Irons and hits theaters on March 29th, 2013.

    hope better than twilight
    • twi-shite hater
       wouldn't be hard to be better than twilight,the bar wasn't set that high.
      • Jericho
        watch her fall in love with one of the aliens that is 'different' than the others....
        • JZ
          Apparently, you have an intense dislike of positive emotion and/or optimism. I suppose you'd prefer to see the planet nuked instead? Independence Day 2, starring Will Farrell?
  • bat0u
    I keep confusing this with the Korean movie of the same title, which I think they're remaking as well. -.- This might be interesting though. There's always hope.
    • Scopedog
      Easy to do, Batou...and I loved the Korean film. As for niece is currently reading the book, and she does like it a lot.  According to her, it isn't TWILIGHT, but a book that's more or less aimed at an older audience. Interesting that Andrew Niccol is doing this, since I liked GATTACA.  Who knows--this might be a good film adaptation.   We'll see.
      • Jericho
        keep in mind a lot of people that liked the Twilight books do not like how the movies have adapted
        • Scopedog
          Agreed.  Although I confess that 1) I've never read the TWILIGHT books and 2) I didn't like the first film. Then again, the TWILIGHT series isn't aimed at people like me, but at a different audience.  S'all right though...
  • Does this film take place at an Emo high school? 
    • Scopedog
      It doesn't. (Now, that's coming from my niece, who's currently reading the book.  I haven't touched it yet!)
  • HarryFiddleSticks
    The music in the trailer is a nice rip off of the Tron Legacy score
    • Bass1L
      totally, i was waiting the moment they entered The Grid
    • Jeff
      Funny I just posted similar comment and then scrolled up to see yours, glad I was not the only one having deja vue.  I wonder if there is anyplace to download these trailer scores.
  • germss
    They could have done a better job with this teaser. Just a bunch of people with glowing eyes and some cliche v.o.
    • A_A
      teaser:  a short introductory advertisement for a product (Duh!)
  • Like Invasion of the Batty Snatchers? I'll probably end up seeing this.
    • Scopedog
      Or maybe even like Heinlein's THE PUPPET MASTERS (minus the slugs)? I might pass on this, but I'm sure my niece will be over the moon about the upcoming film.  She's really enjoying the book.
  • Saoirse Ronan, the only reason why I'm gonna see this.
  • Dune reference?
  • fem!anon
    Awful trailer. But the book was pretty freaking great. Yeah, I said it.
  • JediBilly
    It does sound like another version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers
  • beevis
    plot doesn't sound very good to me.....and the trailer reinforces that. pass for me.
  • stfugtfo
    i hope 2012 is the end, for the sake of cinema
  • Jeff
    Doesn't the music in the background that starts at the 50 second mark sound like the one used in the tron trailer?  Do studios reuse tracks for multiple movies?
  • David Banner
    Yes, in trailers, Hollywood has slapped on other movies' music for 8 decades.
  • francisofranco
    red flags that movie is gonna suck...a) time travel,  b) vampires/zombies C The monster/aliens are new ground broken here...
    • fem!anon
      there is no fucking time travel, there are no fucking vampires/zombies, and they are not invisible. they are physical aliens that possess human beings. please shut your trap. you look like an idiot.
  • jrlv
    Anything even remotly connected to the twilight franchise is a instant turnoff. Not only becouse of the shitty movies they where but also for the ratarded message they try to pass down.
    • Butass
      Word. If you're pathetic and miserable enough, everyone will want to be your friend and a someone will be appear to sweep you off your feet.
  • Kaim
    Dramatic music much?
  • Hi
    Was it just me, or were the images were flashing on the trailer kind of disturbing? I couldn't move for a few seconds after watching it..
  • DoomCanoe
    so its The Invasion with out Nicole Kidman or Daniel Craig?
    • Traveler
      No, it's like Invasion of the Body Snatchers.. for teens. 
  • DoomCanoe
    just you
  • CookieMonster
    Worst teaser ever!
  • Buttass
    I read a little bit of the book and it was hilariously awful, like so bad that I wanted to buy it. If the movie's like that I'll see it twice because it'll be funnier than the Hangover. Also, what are you DOING Saorse Ronan? I respected you.
  • blah
    Evidently it's an alien race that possess iStock photos. 
  • Jezebel
    Andrew Nicholl writing and directing? Hope it doesn't suck as hard as IN TIME.
  • xander.
    This just sounds like invasion of the body snatchers, but I loved Lord of War so I may give this a shot.
  • Incredibly excited for this.  As a Twilight-hater, I was very hesitant when several family members told me to read this, but I could not be more grateful. I loved the book and hope the slightly more mature writing will lead to a more worthwhile film(s).
  • I feel like they took a bunch of driver license photos and photo-manipulated the eyes. I saw this trailer in theater for hunger games and it was so bad I held in my laughter. Doesn't even make me want to read the book. I honestly get confused with the Korean movie-which I loved.
