Official poster of Stephanie Meyer's The Host looks just like...the book cover?

04.12.2012

I guess that's a good thing for the fans, right?  For me, this is kind of ho-hum, but I'm definitely not the target audience for Stephanie Meyer tween fiction.  So, for those who are, we have a look at the first official poster for THE HOST.

Have a look:

And here's the synopsis:

Based on the best-selling novel by TWILIGHT SAGA author Stephenie Meyer, THE HOST is a riveting story about the survival of love and the human spirit in a time of war.  Our world has been invaded by an unseen enemy. Humans become hosts for these invaders, their minds taken over while their bodies remain intact.  Most of humanity has succumbed.

Soooo, Twilight meets Invasion of the Body Snatchers?  And, yes, I will always refer to a Stephanie Meyer project as "Twilight meets ?" 

Despite my cynicism, this does have a few good things going for it, namely Saoirse Ronan and Diane Kruger.  I would gladly let each of them take over my body as "the host."  No problemo.  Director Andrew Niccol, who will likely always be remembered for GATTACA if he doesn't knock one out of the park soon, does bring a bit of clout to the genre, but it's not exactly Verhoeven or Ridley.

Could you imagine this thing directed by Verhoeven?  Oh, the possibilities...

THE HOST is gonna tease you incessantly with official images, teases, and awful fan-made posters until it arrives on March 29, 2013.  The world may have ended by then, however, so many of you will get out of this one.  Maybe.

",but it's not exactly Verhoeven or Ridley." Wait, what? Paul Verhoeven cashed out in the 80's. No disrespect, he came on the scene at the right time and his movies will be remembered, but he, in no way, should be on the same tier with Ridley Scott.

He's certainly had more hits than Niccol and has more style and excess to boot. Aside from Showgirls (which is a cult hit at this point) Verhoeven knocked it out of the park with Flesh+Blood, Robocop, Basic Instinct, Total Recall, and even Hollow Man was pretty damn fun. I'd shell out 12 bucks for his version of The Host without question. As for the current version? Maybe on Netflix streaming.
