Hypable staff reviews ‘The Host’ after a screening in Philadelphia (mini podcast)

Hypable staff members were lucky enough to see a screening of Stephenie Meyer’s book-to-film adaptation The Host! Listen in to their immediate thoughts!

Note: this is a repost from February. We were asked to take down the review at the time per Open Road’s request.

Three Hypable writers met up in Philadelphia to attend a pre-screening. The theater was filled with local fans and some members of the press who came not only to see the film, but also the attend a Q & A with Stephenie Meyer, Jake Abel who plays Ian O’Shea, and Max Irons who plays Jared Howe.

Each of the Hypable writers has a different background, but all three were fans of the novel, The Host. The reviewers are Laura Byrne-Cristiano from Who Hype, Karen Rought from Onceable, and Mitch Clow from Glee Chat.

Our audio review was recorded when they were all in one room together! Listen to their 20-minute review below.

In Philadelphia, Stephenie Meyer announced that she is currently writing the sequel to The Host.

The novel will be titled The Seeker. Both Max Irons and Jake Abel, who were on tour with Meyer, said that they would love to work on The Host sequel.

William Hurt, Chandler Canterbury, and Diane Kruger also star in the adaptation, which is looking to capitalize on the Twilight audience as it hit theaters today, March 29.
