Film News: The Host by Stephenie Meyer

Whilst searching on Google for film news I found the trailer for the latest film based on one of Stephenie Meyer's books, The Host.  I have to confess I'm not a fan of this genre but I know a lot of you are so I decided to do a feature post on it for you. 

Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away. The earth has been invaded by a species that takes over the minds of their human hosts while leaving their bodies intact, and most of humanity has succumbed.

Wanderer, the invading 'soul' who has been given Melanie's body, knew about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the too-vivid memories. But there was one difficulty Wanderer didn't expect: the former tenant of her body refusing to relinquish possession of her mind.

Melanie fills Wanderer's thoughts with visions of the man Melanie loves - Jared, a human who still lives in hiding. Unable to separate herself from her body's desires, Wanderer yearns for a man she's never met. As outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off to search for the man they both love.

The Host will be hitting our cinema screens on 22nd March but for now you'll just have to settle for watching the trailer below to get you in the mood, or perhaps read the film tie-in version of the book that has just been published by Atom Books.
