Previous looks at The Host have deliberately made it look like the new Twilight, which isn’t surprising considering it’s also based on a novel by Stephenie Meyers. However this new trailer allows it to be its own beast, playing up the sci-fi and action more than the romance.
In The Host, 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, including Soarise Ronan’s main character, Melanie Stryder. However while normally the human is completely subdued by their host, in Melanie’s case, her personality flashes through, intriguing her Host, known as Wanda, and setting them off on a quest to find the last free humans. Ronan, Jake Abel, Max Irons and William Hurt star in the movie.
The film hits cinemas in both the UK and US on March 29th.
