Author Stephenie Meyer is launching her latest movie March 29. In The Host, there’s a new kind of enemy in town, but as we learn in this clip, we don’t know exactly what it is.
In this new epic love story, there’s an enemy force threatening to control mankind. Oh boy oh boy, could it be more wolves and vampires, or an alien? In this clip we learn that whatever it is, it’s not human. In protecting each other from the enemy, characters Jared and Ian disagree over the best way to act without being inhuman themselves.
You probably know by now that Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are not featured in this movie. I guess the honeymoon is over with these vamps on-screen. Have no fear, there are new kids in town. Saoirse Ronan of Lovely Bones, Diane Kruger of Unknown, and Max Irons of Red Riding Hood team up in this adventure/romance/sci-fi thriller. They’re the new wave of heartthrobs to invade our minds, keeping alive Meyer’s supernatural and whimsical imagination. Romeo and Juliet never had to worry about vampires, wolves or aliens, but one thing we know for sure is that Meyer’s modern-day love stories are not PC. Her bedtime stories would go something like, “Once upon a time, there was an alien prince who rescued his human bride from the clutches of the vampire wizard.” Sleep well, kids! One day, when you grow up, you could be an alien prince in a cape, too. Meyer’s fantasy world is not your typical yellow brick road. All the more reason to watch!
What do you think the “it” is? Can Meyer entrance audiences again? Will the movie be a box-office hit or miss?
The Host will be in theaters March 29. If this is anything close to Twilight, you might want to jump on those tickets.
