‘The Host’ Featurette: Stephenie Meyer’s Post-Apocalyptic Love Story

The Host
Open Road Films

We’re at an interesting crossroads for the new wave of young adult literature being adapted for the big screen. Sure, films like ‘Twilight‘ or ‘The Hunger Games‘ have shown that there is a sizable audience for these films, but yesterday’s poor opening day showing of ‘Beautiful Creatures‘ suggests that it takes more than just a series of modestly popular books to net a big screen audience. Perhaps author Stephenie Meyer will be enough to get people into the adaptation of her book ‘The Host‘ and here’s a new featurette with the author talking about the film.

The film looks familiar in that there’s a post-apocalyptic setting, and a love story about a young man (Max Irons) and woman (Saoirse Ronan) who were deeply in love and then separated, but the twist is that she’s been possessed by an alien spirit, yet part of the old person remains. That’s not a bad idea all things considered, but it’s likely to get the Romeo and Juliet treatment here.

The film comes out March 29, and then we’ll be getting ‘The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones‘ in August. There are a number of the sorts of films in the works, but we also saw similar off-brand product hit after ‘Harry Potter’ and ‘Twilight’ first showed up, so who’s to say if any of it will click with audiences. Here’s that featurette:
