Since The Host has been adapted from The Twilight Saga’s author Stephenie Meyer’s namesake novel, Twihards and cinephiles have, understandably, set high hopes from the film.
Starring Saoirse Ronan, Max Irons and Jake Abel in lead roles, The Host sees a group of unseen enemies threatening the mankind by taking over their bodies and erasing their memories. Almost every human has been successfully occupied; however, there are pockets of human resistance.
The madly-in-love human couple Melanie (Ronan) and Jared (Irons), too, realise the fact that they can be taken in any moment and their worst fears come to life when Melanie is targeted by the enemies; she decides to die rather than go with them and thus jumps from a building breaking all her bones and rupturing almost all her organs.
All the physically sustained injuries are healed by the tech-savvy enemies who are certain of the fact that if they occupy this host, her memories will lead them to the human resistance left on this planet.
Make no mistake though, this host ain’t anything like others and despite being occupied, she somewhat has control over herself; but the question is, can she be trusted by the few existing humans and, more importantly, her lover? The answers should come out on 12 April, the reported release date of The Host in India.
Meanwhile, catch the trailer of the film below and some stills on the following pages.
