A new still from the big screen adaptation of Stephenie Meyer’s The Host is here, and it’s pretty damned sappy. Not in the slimy way either. We’re talking postcard to the in-laws sappy. We feel dirty. Look if you must.
Open Road Films previously acquired U.S. distribution rights to the film version of Meyer’s best-selling novel The Host, which has been directed by Andrew Niccol (Gattaca), who also wrote the screenplay. It stars Saoirse Ronan (Hanna, The Lovely Bones).
Look for it in theatres on March 29, 2013.
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, 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.
