If you’re a fan of Stephanie Meyer’s works then the end of ‘The Twilight Saga’ films isn’t a sad event as it has now made room for her other novel, ‘The Host,’ to take its place. The film won’t be out until for another 2 months but the studio has released three new movie posters when put together makes an interesting banner.
‘The Host’ was written and directed by Andrew Niccol (‘Gattica,’ ‘In Time,’ ‘The Truman Show’) and continues the teenage angst love theme seen in ‘The Twilight Saga’, but instead of vampires and werewolves, we have aliens.
The film takes place after the occupation of Earth by a species that erases the minds of humans as they inhabit their bodies. Saoirse Ronan stars as Melanie Stryder, a young woman who is part of a resistance fighting the aliens called “Souls”. She has a Soul named Wanderer implanted in her and what is normally an easy alien takeover process becomes a match of wills as Melanie’s consciousness fights back. Add in the fact that two men (Jake Abel and Max Irons) are in love with Melanie (well, one with Melanie the other with alien inside of her) and the next YA sci-fi romance film is born.
Below are the posters separately and what it would look like when all three are put together. Granted, the images don’t look much like a sci-fi film and it makes me wonder if the film is more of a chick flick with a little sci-fi thrown in so that the significant male in their lives wouldn’t be so reluctant to see ‘The Host’. The trailer does do a little better job at the sci-fi part of the film.
Along with the posters are some images from the film that have also been released.
So what do you think? Will ‘The Host’ be the next movie franchise for Stephanie Meyer?
