Teaser Trailer and First Pics Released for Stephenie Meyer's The Host
Posted 03.22.12 by Mandy
Author Stephenie Meyer is, of course, best known for her Twilight series about vampires and werewolves and love. But she doesn't just write about the supernatural and romance. She has a book about aliens and romance, too.
Meyer's follow-up to The Twilight Saga was The Host, which she describes as "science fiction for people who don't like science fiction." The story takes place in a world where humans have become hosts to unseen invaders. These aliens take over the humans' minds while leaving their bodies intact.
A movie based on the book is due out at the end of March 2013, and the first pics have been released. More surprisingly, the first trailer for the movie has just arrived online, as well. "But wait," you may ask, "didn't The Host just start shooting? How did they already cut a trailer?" Well it turns out that sometimes, if you're clever, you can cut a trailer without any footage from the movie at all.
The Host stars Saoirse Ronan, Max Irons, Diane Kruger, and Jake Abel. Andrew Niccol is the director and adapted the book to a screenplay — with some input from Meyer, of course.
