Otherwise you might realize there’s nothing there except lead actress Saoirse Ronan staring into the camera, then flashes of some random folks with alien-y eyes. Which is basically what you get from this teaser trailer for “The Host” (not to be mistaken with the South Korean monster movie, or its talked about remake), Andrew Niccol’s adaptation of the bestselling novel by Stephenie Meyer of “Twilight” fame. It’ll be curious to see if “The Host”, minus the vampire kids of “Twilight”, can keep Meyer’s box office streak. It’ll be a while yet before we know the answer, though, the film isn’t due out until 2013.
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.
Also co-starring Max Irons, Diane Kruger, Jake Abel, Chandler Canterbury, and William Hurt.
Taking over March 29, 2013.
