The Host Trailer Emerges: Is It The New Twilight?


The first trailer for 'The Host' has emerged online, with fans already drawing comparisons with the Twilight Saga and the latest teen movie sensation The Hunger Games. It's perhaps no coincidence that studio bosses have decided to premiere the trailer on the same day that The Hunger Games is released - a movie that is expected to take over $150 million at the box-office this weekend.
Fans of the Twilight movies will already been familiar with the themes in The Host, given it is based on the 2008 science fiction novel by Stephenie Meyer, the author of the hit vampire novels. The movie is set in a future in which mankind is threatened by the arrival of aliens, who take over human bodies. The big budget adaptation will feature Saoirse Ronan, best known for her performances in Atonement and more recently The Lovely Bones, directed by Peter Jackson. Director Andrew Niccol has previously worked on the movie 'In Time', with Justin Timberlake.
The trailer itself doesn't give too much away, other than telling us that humans have been taken over by aliens known as "Souls". Their presence in human bodies appears to be signalled by blue rings around the pupils. The Host, also starring Diane Kruger, is not expected until March 2013.
