After a fairly lame teaser for the next adaptation of a novel by Twilight author Stephenie Meyer, a new batch of stills have arrived thanks to Open Road. Considering the source material, this wouldn’t be my cup of tea, but The Host has some major talent behind the camera, directed by Gattaca helmer Andrew Niccol. Although his latest film, In Time, ranks as one of the bigger disappointments of last year, I’m still interested in what the man has up his sleeve.
Starring Saoirse Ronan, these new stills give us our first look at Inglourious Basterds star Diane Kruger, as well as up-and-comer Max Irons, last seen in Red Riding Hood, who seems to resemble a cross between Garret Hedlund, Liam Hemsworth and any number of teen heartthrobs. Focusing on alien parasites taking over human souls, at least this doesn’t look to contain any sort of love triangle. Check out the photos above and below for the film also starring Jake Abel, William Hurt and Frances Fisher.
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.
The Host arrives March 29th, 2013.
