Showing the Love with a Featurette Plus Advanced Screening Info for THE HOST


We have a new featurette for you today with the theme of love in an alien takeover. In The Host, Earth has been almost completely taken over by aliens and here you can see how love finds a way despite all odds. I couldn’t really detect a whole lot in the way of new footage in the trailer, just a new romantic spin on the discussion in the cast interviews.

Stay after the featurette for an excerpt from Stephenie Meyer and locations for advanced screenings of The Host.

Featurette: The Host – Choose To Love

Now these trailers and featurettes have all been really focused on the younger characters of the story. In an interview with Hypable, Stephenie Meyer talked about working with William Hurt and Francis Fisher and the roles they play in the film.

So much, oh my god. It’s really amazing. I mean, Frances Fisher has a smaller role than William Hurt, but she’s really fantastic in everything she does. But William has major role and gets to be the thoughtful center of the movie. He’s the person who’s been around the longest, seen the most, and has come up with a philosophy on life. And every time he’s in a scene it’s just like – “ahhh!” – angel like. It’s amazing. I really think people are just going to adore him as Uncle Jeb. I think that might be the most true to the novel role – the look, the sound of his voice. I think people are going to be like, “yes, no one else could do this but him.”

If you live in Miami, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Minneapolis or Chicago and you can’t possibly wait until the premiere date of March 29th, there will be advanced screenings held in each of these cities. Clicking on the cities will take you to a registration, but even if you register, you’ll still want to get there early as seating is first come first served.

The Host starring Saoirse Ronan, Max Irons, Jake Abel, Diane Kruger, William Hurt and Frances Fisher is slated to hit theaters on March 29th, 2013.
