The Host: 1st trailer for the adaptation of Stephenie ‘Twilight’ Meyer’s novel from the director of In Time...

Whilst In Time may have been disappointing compared to Andrew Niccol’s other writing & directing efforts, Gattaca & Lord of War; not to mention well below the standard of his screenplay for ‘The Truman Show’, it was certainly a hit. Justin Timberlake’ growing, international, movie fan base helped that film to a $166m+ from a relatively low TOTAL budget of $68m. So Niccol now has a commercial hit to go alongside the critical Kudos his other works have garnered. That won’t hurt as the release for this film, which he has adapted from Stephenie Meyer’s bestselling novel.

“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.”

Saoirse Ronan (Hanna) stars in the film which is due out this time next year.
