Just last week, we got our first look at the big screen adaptation of Stephenie Meyer’s first adult novel The Host, starring Saoirse Ronan, Max Irons, William Hurt, Diane Kruger and Jake Abel. Now, we’ve got a few stills from the Andrew Niccol (Gattaca, In Time) directed film that you can see Saoirse Ronan’s character Melanie before becoming a host and after.

“The Host” is a riveting story about the survival of love and the human spirit in a time of war. Our world has been invaded by an unseen enemy. Humans become hosts for these invaders, their minds taken over while their bodies remain intact. Most of humanity has succumbed.
When Melanie, one of the few remaining “wild” humans, is captured, she is certain it is her end. Wanderer, the invading “soul” who has been given Melanie’s body, was warned about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the glut of senses, 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.
When outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off on a dangerous and uncertain search for the man they both love.
Directed by Andrew Niccol (Gattaca, In Time), The Host stars Saoirse Ronan (Hanna, The Lovely Bones, Atonement), Max Irons (Red Riding Hood), Jake Abel (I Am Number Four, Percy Jackson & the Olympians), Diane Kruger (Inglorious Bastards, Unknown), William Hurt (Into The Wild, The Incredible Hulk) and Frances Fisher (Titantic).
The Host is slated to hit theaters on March 29th, 2013.
