The first full length trailer for Andrew Niccol’s (‘In Time’) latest sci-fi adaptation ‘The Host’ has risen. The new trailer comes courtesy of Open Road Films and features star Saoirse Ronan (‘The Lovely Bones’). The mind of the semi-possessed Melanie (played by Ronan) can’t quite shake her ex-love as she tries to defy her fused alien host and go in search of him. Unsurprisingly the project is based on the book by ‘Twilight’ author Stephanie Meyer so no sooner have we shook the likes of the terrible teen-vampire franchise from our theatres than the novelist returns with what ‘hopefully’ will be more stomachable. The flick co-stars Diane Kruger, Jake Abel, William Hurt, Frances Fisher, Max Irons, Chandler Canterbury and Boyd Holbrook. Check the new trailer 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’ will open in theatres from 29 March 2013.
