The Host

Choose to believe. Choose to love. Choose to drive a Lotus Evora. Three new posters have emerged for the adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's sci-fi novel The Host, but two of them might also double as magazine ads for a car or shampoo. While there's a one sheet that feels familiar with Saoirse Ronan, Max Irons and Jake Abel, the other two are just strange. One with Diane Kruger prominently features a shiny Lotus Evora in the desert while the other has Ronan and Irons embracing romantically either in the rain or a shower, which immediately reminded me of Herbal Essences shampoo. See the new posters yourself below!

Here's the three new posters for Andrew Niccol's The Host from Yahoo:

The Host - Believe Poster

The Host - Fight Poster

The Host - Love Poster

Andrew Niccol (In Time, Gattaca, Lord of War) wrote and 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.

    If there's an award for most accurate title for an article ever, that one wins.

      Well, it is spot-on...;) But I'm actually interested in seeing THE HOST. Never read the book, but I like Niccol for GATTACA (haven't seen IN TIME, though) and he must've seen something in the novel to make him want to both write and direct the film.

        GATTACA was brilliant, but man did Niccol take a serious misstep with IN TIME. I think Tarantino is right - when you make a bad movie, especially one as bad as IN TIME, it costs you three good movies.

    They really shouldn't tie this to twilight, I know how the industry goes and all but still. I loved the books but the movie made everything I loved about it a joke. The jokes are funny though and I'm right there laughing. Anyway the only good that comes from connecting it to twilight is if the movie is actually good or better than expected. I like the director, the plot isn't screwing with something so deeply accepted and set like vampires, and there's no Kristen Stewart so it's already got my vote. Truthfully the presentation for this movie has only gotten better and better; the teaser was ridiculous looked like a bunch of facebook photos were cropped leaving only the eyes, then the trailer which was many steps forward, then I found out who the director is which is another plus, main actress is ok, I'm really happy she isn't someone mega famous. I actually think details like that take away from certain types of movies
