'The Host' Trailer: Love's Pretty Crazy When an Alien's in Your Noodle
Though Stephenie Meyer's Twilight saga is drawing to a close, fear not, the author is not leaving us without some thinly-realized teen romance draped limply over genre fiction. Having written all the erotic passages she could about sparkling skin, Meyer has moved on to sparkling eyes, trading sexy vampires for sexy parasitic brain aliens in The Host. Now adapted into a feature by Andrew Niccol, the film sees humankind on the brink of extinction due to an invasive extraterrestrial race that enters the noggin, erases the memories, and takes over, giving its host body prettier eyes. Hanna's Saoirse Ronan plays one such host, albeit one who won't cede her mind and memory to the alien parasite quite so easily. Because: "LOVE NEVER DIES." And she is SO in love with this dude she just met before being stuffed with an alien Krang. (Source: below trailer.)
