New Host Character Poster Looks Over Your Shoulder

On tap right now is a one-sheet for The Host. For your viewing pleasure Open Road has released a new character poster for the film, this one featuring Jake Abel as Ian O'Shea. Check it out!

Open Road Films is releasing The Host, based on Stephenie Meyer's novel, on March 29, 2013, in the US. Look for it in the UK on the same day from Entertainment Film Distributors. It was directed by Andrew Niccol, who also wrote the screenplay. It stars Saoirse Ronan, Diane Kruger, William Hurt, Jake Abel, Max Irons, Boyd Holbrook, and Frances Fisher.

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 (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.

Goody! More posters of people looking off in to space and gazing in to the horizon! Didn't get enough of that crap with the Twilight movies!

"I have a character who is a body-jumping, space-traveling alien spirit, so what should I name it? I know, Wanderer! Easy peasy. These books write themselves." - Stephenie Meyer

Considering the book is just hundreds of pages of miserable dialogue that goes nowhere, it would be very hard for the movie to be worse. So there's that.
