Stephenie Meyer's 'The Host': Exclusive featurette

Posted on

The Host Rain
Alan Markfield

Vampires and werewolves are so 2012. This year is all about aliens — specifically, the “Souls” of Stephenie Meyer’s The Host, a parasitic race that has nearly completed its invasion of Earth. There’s just one thing standing in their way: Human girl Melanie Stryder (Saoirse Ronan of Atonement and Hanna), who won’t go down without a fight… even after her brain becomes home for one of the Souls.

Learn more about the world of The Host in this exclusive behind-the-scenes video, which features the Twilight author and the film’s stars explaining why their film is a must-see even for those who rolled their eyes at Edward and Bella. “It is a much deeper story than the Twilight novels,” says Meyer, who would know better than anyone.

Resistance is futile: The Host invades theaters March 29.
