[Teaser] – The Host

25 Mar

 

The final installment in the Twilight Saga will hit theaters this November. And while The Hunger Games just scored the third-biggest opening weekend ever with a $155 million frame, Stephenie Meyer will still want a piece of that YA crowd once her mothership concludes its four-movie run.

Which is why, just as The Hunger Games is premiering, a short teaser for The Host, the upcoming adaptation of Ms. Meyers’ non-Twilight novel, was released. And it really is just that, a teaser; the film’s still shooting so there’s not a whole lot of footage available, but it’s enough to wet the apetite of its target demo, and I’d bet on a proper full trailer attached to The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2.

The teaser is also quite short on plot, but I’ll fill you in: In the future aliens have descended on Earth, invading our bodies, taking over our consciouesness, erasing our memories. Except for Melanie, who refuses to let the alien that’s trying to get into her, named Wanderer, get full control. Which gets complicated as Melanie starts falling for one boy, and Wanderer starts falling for another.

The Host is still a long ways away, being released March 29, 2013. Andrew Niccol takes directing as well as screenwriting duties. The wonderful Saoirse Ronan headlines the film, joined by Diane Kruger, William Hurt, Jake Abel, Max Irons and Frances Fisher.
