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

Truong18 on Mar 22, 2012


 wouldn't be hard to be better than twilight,the bar wasn't set that high.

twi-shite hater on Mar 22, 2012


watch her fall in love with one of the aliens that is 'different' than the others....

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?

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.

bat0u on Mar 22, 2012


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.

keep in mind a lot of people that liked the Twilight books do not like how the movies have adapted

Jericho on Mar 22, 2012


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...

Scopedog on Mar 23, 2012


Does this film take place at an Emo high school? 

Quanah on Mar 22, 2012


It doesn't. (Now, that's coming from my niece, who's currently reading the book.  I haven't touched it yet!)

Scopedog on Mar 22, 2012


The music in the trailer is a nice rip off of the Tron Legacy score

HarryFiddleSticks on Mar 22, 2012


totally, i was waiting the moment they entered The Grid

Bass1L on Mar 22, 2012


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.

Jeff on Mar 22, 2012


They could have done a better job with this teaser. Just a bunch of people with glowing eyes and some cliche v.o.

germss on Mar 22, 2012


teaser:  a short introductory advertisement for a product (Duh!)

A_A on Mar 25, 2012


Like Invasion of the Batty Snatchers? I'll probably end up seeing this.

Crapola on Mar 22, 2012


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.

Scopedog on Mar 23, 2012


Saoirse Ronan, the only reason why I'm gonna see this.

Raul Fuentes on Mar 22, 2012


Dune reference?

Davide Coppola on Mar 22, 2012


Awful trailer. But the book was pretty freaking great. Yeah, I said it.

fem!anon on Mar 22, 2012


It does sound like another version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers

JediBilly on Mar 22, 2012


plot doesn't sound very good to me.....and the trailer reinforces that. pass for me.

beevis on Mar 22, 2012


i hope 2012 is the end, for the sake of cinema

stfugtfo on Mar 22, 2012


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?

Jeff on Mar 22, 2012


Yes, in trailers, Hollywood has slapped on other movies' music for 8 decades.

David Banner on Mar 23, 2012


red flags that movie is gonna suck...a) time travel,  b) vampires/zombies C The monster/aliens are new ground broken here...

francisofranco on Mar 23, 2012


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.

fem!anon on Mar 23, 2012


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.

jrlv on Mar 23, 2012


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.

Butass on Mar 23, 2012


Dramatic music much?

Kaim on Mar 23, 2012


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..

Hi on Mar 23, 2012


so its The Invasion with out Nicole Kidman or Daniel Craig?

DoomCanoe on Mar 23, 2012


No, it's like Invasion of the Body Snatchers.. for teens. 

Traveler on Mar 23, 2012


just you

DoomCanoe on Mar 23, 2012


Worst teaser ever!

CookieMonster on Mar 23, 2012


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.

Buttass on Mar 23, 2012


Evidently it's an alien race that possess iStock photos. 

blah on Mar 23, 2012


Andrew Nicholl writing and directing? Hope it doesn't suck as hard as IN TIME.

Jezebel on Mar 23, 2012


This just sounds like invasion of the body snatchers, but I loved Lord of War so I may give this a shot.

xander. on Mar 24, 2012


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).

Garrett Harer on Mar 26, 2012


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.
