Two character posters for Andrew Niccol’s adaptation of Twilight author Stephenie Meyer’s sci-fi novel The Host have landed online, one surfacing on the AMC Facebook page, another on Just Jared. The first features our very own Saoirse Ronan, the second Max Irons.
The film sees Ronan infected with a parasitic alien life-form., but instead of carrying out it’s race’s mission of taking over the Earth, it forms a bond with it’s host and sets out to aid the remaining free humans.
Ronan is joined by Irons, Jake Abel, Diane Kruger, William Hurt, and Frances Fisher.
The Host infests Irish cinemas on March 22nd.
The Host is a riveting story about the survival of love and the human spirit in a time of war. 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.
