The Host Trailer: Saoirse Ronan, Andrew Niccol, and Stephenie Meyer: One of These Is Not Like the Other

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | November 13, 2012 | Comments ()


Stephenie Meyers, the writer behind the Twilight series, wrote another book called The Host, which is about aliens inhabiting the body of humans, leaving only a few scattered Earthlings remaining in our future apocalypse. Saoirse Ronan plays a human with so much will and SO MANY EMOTIONS that her will attempts to overpower the alien invading her body because she's, like, so in love with Blandy McFace-steen. Andrew Niccol (Truman Show, Gattaca) directs, which would be a lot more intriguing if the only movie he's done in the last seven years wasn't Justin Timberlake's Blandy McBland-movie In Time.

The good news: Saoirse Ronan (Hanna) still kicks huge amounts of Blandy McKeister.

    Didn't you turkeys actually think In Time looked good for about a minute? Despite it having the plot it had?

    Anyways Korean monster movie The Host>this or anything Meyers really.

  • efritze

    aughhh yeah. The only reason I clicked this was excitement that Saiorse was starring in an American remake of Bong Joon-ho's The Host. Sigh, guess it was a futile dream.

  • Stephenie Meyers, the writer talentless, emo hellbitch hack behind the Twilight series...

    There. It's fixed.

  • span tags don't work in the HTML for comments? WTF?

    I actually read this book (I know, I know) and it wasn't that horrible. I mean, it wasn't amazing but it was thoroughly enjoyable. With that in mind, and with a good screenwriter, the movie has actual potential to be not bad. I do still wonder how they'll deal with the voice-over problem, doesn't seem like it will translate well at all.

    Voice-over problem? This looks like a job for Super-Freeman!

  • FireLizardQueen

    That would be amazing. Especially since the other voice in her head is supposed to be another teenage girl. Freeman could totally pull that off.

    How come it's always the young, pretty girls that have more will than the rest of the human race? Why do us handsome white men miss out on all the fun? We can save the planet too y'all!

  • David Sorenson

    Green Lantern. Handsome white man has more will than the rest of the universe. And he was Canadian, which is pretty much double white.

  • littlealbatross

    Why do us less than stunning women miss out? I want a hero that is totally normal. Normal looking- average height, weight, hair, looks. Average. Pretty people have all the fun.

  • lowercase_ryan

    Mrs. Doubtfire was totally average looking and she saved the day right?

  • MauraFoley

    It looks not that bad in the same way every bland action movie looks not that bad in trailer form. Only this one is going through puberty.
