It’s been since November that we’ve visited Stephenie Meyer’s latest book to movie project, and we wanted to give you a little refresher on the official trailers as well as some behind the scenes goodies. I’ll be truthful. I read the book and my only thought was that it would make a better movie. The Host really encapsulates a great idea for an imagining of an alien takeover. Judging from the media I’ve included I am really pleased and I can’t wait to see how this parasitic race comes across on the big screen. Also I did love Saoirse Ronan in City of Ember and Hanna. She is so talented and will carry the movie well.
A species of aliens has taken over the Earth — and the humans’ minds! But some humans refuse to give up their minds. While Wanderer, the invading ‘soul’ in Melanie Stryder’s body is overwhelmed with human minds and emotions, Melanie mourns for the lover she left behind, Jared. Eventually, Wanderer begins to feel for Jared as well, and they seek him out.
