Young star of ‘Hanna’ and ‘The Lovely Bones’ Saoirse Ronan is showing off her blue peepers in a new still from Andrew Niccol’s (‘In Time’) feature adaption of ‘The Host’. Based on the sci-fi novel by ‘Twilight’ author Stephanie Meyer the action takes place in a world where Earth has been taken over by a new species that use humans as their hosts. The new still featuring Saoirse comes courtesy of Open Road Films. Diane Kruger, Jake Abel, William Hurt, Frances Fisher, Max Irons, Chandler Canterbury and Boyd Holbrook all co-star alongside Ronan in ‘The Host’ and you catch it in theatres next March.
“Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away. The earth has been invaded by a species that take over the minds of their human hosts while leaving their bodies intact, and most of humanity has succumbed. Wanderer, the invading “soul” who has been given Melanie’s body, knew about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, 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. Melanie fills Wanderer’s thoughts with visions of the man Melanie loves-Jared, a human who still lives in hiding. Unable to separate herself from her body’s desires, Wanderer yearns for a man she’s never met. As outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off to search for the man they both love.”
‘The Host’ is set to open on 29 March 2013.
