The Host, the next movie you’re going to get from Twilight author Stephenie Meyer, isn’t about to let go of you. With a teaser clip here, a few images there, and now an official poster, the film that doesn’t come out for nearly a year wants to build the excitement until you explode. And… who am I to stand in the way.
Note the facial highlights, as we close in on, but don’t quite manage, the blue-orange movie poster phenomenon.
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.
Directed by Andrew Niccol (GATTACA, IN TIME), THE HOST stars Saoirse Ronan (HANNA, THE LOVELY BONES, ATONEMENT), Max Irons (RED RIDING HOOD), Jake Abel (I AM NUMBER FOUR, PERCY JACKSON & THE OLYMPIANS), Diane Kruger (INGLORIOUS BASTARDS, UNKNOWN), William Hurt (INTO THE WILD, THE INCREDIBLE HULK) and Frances Fisher (TITANIC).
THE HOST will be in theaters everywhere March 29, 2013!
