‘The Host’ Trailer: Is This the New ‘Twilight?’ (VIDEO)
Set in a post-apocalyptic world, in which most of the human race has been wiped out by an alien race known as Souls, The Host stars Saoirse Ronan as Melanie Stryder, a human whose body is inhabited by a Soul named Wanderer.
Max Irons — who once auditioned for the role of Edward Cullen in The Twilight Saga — portrays Jared Howe, Melanie’s lover. However, after Melanie is captured by the Souls and implanted with Wanderer, he thinks he’s lost her forever. That is, until Melanie convinces Wanderer, who lives tandem inside her body, to help her search for Jared and her younger brother.
Jake Abel stars as Ian O’Shea, Wanderer’s fierce protector and Jared’s main competition for her affections. This wouldn’t be a Stephenie Meyer film without a dramatic love triangle!
The Host hits theaters March 29, 2013.
