Dare I hope that “The Host” is much, much better than Andrew Niccol’s last movie, the awfully awful “In Time”? I dare, I dare. Then again, it is based on a Stephenie Meyer book, so who the hell knows, really. Anyways, we have a handful of new images from the movie for you to check out. So check them out, check them outers.
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. When Melanie (Saoirse Ronan), one of the few remaining “wild” humans, is captured, she is certain it is her end. Wanderer, the invading “soul” who has been given Melanie’s body, was warned about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the glut of senses, the too-vivid memories. But there was one difficulty Wanderer didn’t expect: the former tenant of her body refusing to relinquish possession of her mind. When outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off on a dangerous and uncertain search for the man they both love.
Starring Saoirse Ronan, Max Irons, Diane Kruger, Jake Abel, Chandler Canterbury, and William Hurt.
Wandering into theaters March 29, 2013.
