Saoirse Ronan in Stephanie Meyer’s The Host – new trailer

Diane Kruger, Max Irons and Jake Abel also star in the post-apocalyptic film from the author of the Twilight series

The earth is under attack from a blue-eyed alien race in the new trailer for supernatural film The Host.


Adapted from a novel by author of the Twilight Saga Stephanie Meyer, The Host follows the story of Melanie Stryder, played by Atonement, Hanna and The Lovely Bones actress Saoirse Ronan.

The Host is set in a post-apocalyptic world where most of the human race are unwillingly acting as hosts for a bodyless alien race. Melanie is a member of the human resistance who, after meeting and falling in love with fellow surviver Jared, is taken over by an alien soul.

The Seeker, played by Diane Kruger, hopes that when the alien soul takes over Melanie’s memories it will lead them to the remaining human resistance. But the soul doesn’t react the way it is expected to and forms a bond with the Melanie and her loved ones…

Directed by Andrew Niccol, the writer of The Truman Show, The Host also stars Max Irons, Jake Abel and William Hurt.


The Host will be in UK cinemas from 29 March 2013
