A brand new trailer for Stephenie Meyer’s adaptation The Host, starring Saoirse Ronan, Max Irons and Jake Abel, has arrived online, just in time for Valentine’s day.
Directed by Andrew Niccol (In Time), The Host is gearing up for its release, as this is just the latest trailer on its marketing train. You can watch the brand new trailer below:
William Hurt and Diane Kruger also star in the adaptation, which is looking to capitalize on the Twilight audience as it hits theaters next month, March 29.
When an unseen enemy threatens mankind by taking over their bodies and erasing their memories, Melanie Stryder will risk everything to protect the people she cares most about — Jared, Ian, her brother Jamie and her Uncle Jeb, proving that love can conquer all in a dangerous new world.
Back in January, Niccol, who also wrote the adaptation, spoke about the film with The Hollywood Reporter, saying, “A lot of people said this can’t be done, but I thought, ‘I kind of like this.’ Of course, in the book, it’s easy to write on the page, but the characters — you’re hearing the thoughts of both of them. What I did to make it more cinematic, I had Wanderer actually speak, which instantly made it better, I think, from a cinematic viewpoint. But, of course, you can read on the page the exchanges.”
