With Twilight coming to an end this weekend, at least in its current incarnation, the next work from author Stephenie Meyer is wasting no time coming to the big screen. After a teaser way back in the spring, the full theatrical trailer has now landed for The Host, sci-fi thriller about an evil force inhabiting humans everywhere.

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.
