Watch: Mostly Decent Full Trailer for Stephenie Meyers' 'The Host'
"This one wants to live." If it wasn't for the expected melodramatic love triangle we've come to expect from author Stephenie Meyer, this adaptation of The Host from director Andrew Niccol would be even more enticing. In what is essentially an updated version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Saoirse Ronan plays Melanie Stryder, one of the last people fighting an invading parasitic alien methodically taking over humans. We catch glimpses of the alien race living in human bodies (Jake Abel and Diane Kruger) and their advanced technology, and also Stryder's human lover played by Max Irons. Could be good? Watch!
Here's the full length trailer for Andrew Niccol's The Host originally from MTV:
