In Movie Theaters March 29, 2013
The first non-Twilight movie based on a Stephenie Meyer novel.
In the movie The Host, from Twilight author Stephanie Meyer, the world has been invaded by an unseen enemy. Humans become hosts for these invaders, their minds taken over while their bodies remain intact and continue their lives apparently unchanged. Most of humanity has succumbed.
When Melanie, one of the few remaining wild humans is captured, she is certain it is her end.
Wanderer, the invading soul who has been given Melanie's body, was warned about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the glut of senses, 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.
The final Twilight movie, Breaking Dawn: Part 2, arrived in movie theaters November 16, 2012.
The Host may become a success because; it is based on a novel from Twilight creator Stephenie Meyer, and from the same director as Gattaca, and stars Oscar nominee Saoirse Ronan (try to pronounce that if you're not Irish.
The Host may be a box office bomb because; it is not a movie about vampires and werewolves, it is from the same director as the box office bombs Lord Of War and S1m0ne, and from the movie studio Open Road, which has yet to produce a box office hit.
UPDATE: As we predicted, The Host was a huge box office bomb. And rightfully so.
