A new one-sheet has popped up over at the IMP Awards for Andrew Niccol’s (‘In Time’) new sci-fi adaption ‘The Host’. The new poster features a blue-eyed Saoirse Ronan (‘The Lovely Bones’) who stars as ‘The Wanderer’, an alien invader whose fused mind with her host human body counterpart leads her to go in search for her ex-love. The movie will be distributed across the US next March from Open Road Films and is based on a story by Stephanie Meyer, the novelist responsible for the lacklustre series of annoying ‘Twilight’ vampire books. Diane Kruger, Jake Abel, William Hurt, Frances Fisher, Max Irons, Chandler Canterbury and Boyd Holbrook all co-star. Check out the new poster below.
“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’ opens 29 March 2013.
