New trailer for Stephanie Meyer’s THE HOST

A new trailer for director Andrew Niccol’s (Gattaca) adaptation of the Stephenie Meyer novel The Host has hit the net. The story takes place in a future where a parasitic alien race is almost finished wiping out the human race by taking over the consciousness of each person. A soul named Wanderer is attempting to take control of Melanie Stryder’s (Saoirse Ronan) consciousness, but faces strong opposition by what remains of the girl. This trailer does an admirable job of explaining the film’s story. I’m sure Twilight fans will support the film, but otherwise the buzz seems a little muted.

The film also stars Max Irons, Jake Abel, Diane Kruger, William Hurt, and Boyd Holbrook. The Host opens on March 29th.

Official synopsis;

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.
