The only thing we've really seen from the feature film adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's The Host is Saoirse Ronan's eye, which has been featured in the posters and teaser trailer. This new behind the scenes video gives us a look at the set of the film and some of our first real footage from it. The video also includes interviews with the actors in the movie, including Ronan and Max Irons.
I'm not the biggest fan of Meyer's work, my only hope for this movie is that Gattacca director Andrew Niccol will be able to turn it into something worth watching. He's both writing and directing the movie. Unfortunately, the movie still looks like it's going to suck.
Here’s the synopsis:
Melanie Stryder [is] one of the last humans putting up a fight against an alien species called Souls. These parasites invade human bodies, fuse to each person’s consciousness and systematically erase their personalities. Melanie is captured by the aliens and implanted by a Soul called Wanderer, something of a legend because of all of the “hosts” she has attached to on numerous planets. Wanderer’s goal is to get Melanie to give up the remaining pockets of humans, but instead the alien finds Melanie to be unique in her unwillingness to surrender her consciousness. Wanderer is so overwhelmed by Melanie’s memories and feelings, the alien is driven to reconnect with Melanie’s old life.
The movie is set to be released on March 29th, 2013. What are your thoughts on this film?
