New trailer for The Host: watch now

The battle for Earth is ending…

 

A new trailer has emerged online for The Host, Andrew Niccol’s adaptation of another Stephenie Meyer young-adult novel.

The film is set in a dystopian future in which a race of parasitic aliens have stealthily managed to take possession of the majority of the human race.

However, some hosts are less receptive to said parasites than others, and Saoirse Ronan’s teenage heroine is one such fighter.

Take a look at the new trailer, below:



The new trailer does a decent job of explaining the film’s sci-fi set-up while also introducing the obligatory love triangle between Ronan’s character and rival hunks Max Irons and Jake Abel.

Co-starring Diane Kruger and William Hurt, The Host will open in the UK on 29 March 2013.
