With the conclusion of the ridiculously popular Twilight Saga, Open Road is eager to latch on to the next big young adult franchise with an adaptation of Stephanie Meyer’s science-fiction novel The Host.
The film is set in a future where an alien species has invaded Earth by taking over the minds of nearly every single person. Saoirse Ronan stars as Melanie Stryder, a young woman who manages to fight back the Soul trying to take control of her mind. Apparently, she is the savior of humanity but not before she gets involved in a love triangle with wannabe Edward-and-Jacob.
It all sounds somewhat convoluted and quite a bit ridiculous but the trailer does a fairly decent job of explaining the premise of the film. If you hated Twilight, you will probably feel the same way about this. Andrew Niccol (In Time) directs with Max Irons and Diane Kruger also starring.
Watch the trailer below and let us know what you think! The Host opens on March 29th.
