The Host Trailer Revealed

Crushed on by Shannon, on November 27, 2012, in Books in the news / 0 Comments

The Host trailer was finally revealed last week after months of anticipation. The Stephanie Meyer sci-fi novel about aliens that come to earth and take over the bodies of human beings is gearing up for it’s 2013 release. I have to admit I was skeptical when I heard they were making The Host into a movie. For starters, I loved the book and felt that it was far too complex a story to adequately be told on screen. In addition, I wasn’t sure how they were going to fully show the inner struggle that goes on between Melanie the human “host” and Wanderer her alien invader as theirs is such a bizarre complex relationship that takes place entirely as an internal monologue.  I also had serious misgivings about the casting of Saoirse Ronan as Melanie and Diane Kruger as The Seeker as both are completely opposite from how the characters were described in the book. However, watching this trailer I was literally blown away by the visuals, the CGI, and yes even the look of the actors. It remains to be seen if The Host will live up to expectations. I for one have very high hopes for it and will be anxiously awaiting it’s March 29, 2013 release.
