Will you be taken over by this first full trailer for The Host?

The Host poster slice

While a teaser trailer of sorts for Stephenie Meyer's THE HOST dropped back in March, today's footage is the first full (albeit somewhat low-quality) glimpse we've had at the movie. 

And the verdict?

Saoirse Ronan is pretty.  She has some alien-bestowed powers, one of which is Wolverine-style regeneration.  I think there's a love triangle going on, but I kept getting distracted by how this seems more like the poor man's INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS than anything else.  Still, just because it's not my cup of tea doesn't mean you can't have a ball with what's going on here.  So check out the footage below, and then strike back below that with your thoughts on the first filmed adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's work that isn't TWILIGHT related.

If this IS your cup of tea, then you can drink that cup dry on March 29th, 2013.

Extra Tidbit: William Hurt is in this. I just want to shout "Get out, William Hurt! Get out while you still somehow can!"

Aesthetically, this movie doesn't look that bad. I chalk that up to Andrew Niccol's direction. Except for the glimpse into space, which looks pretty terrible. Overall, the best I can say for this is it makes me wonder what Twilight would have looked like if they actually gave a damn about making the action look half-way believable and focused less on awkward stares. So I think this looks ten times better than Twilight, but I don't think it's going to be a movie I'd want to see.

It honestly doesn't look bad. The action looks a thousand times better. Ronan is a very talented actress. And the plot (while a little melodramatic) at least looks intriguing. I hesitate to say it looks good, but I could be swayed if the other trailers are this good.

The toilet paper of Stephanie Meyer. She sucks as a writer.

I've heard the book is very good but all I see is a TWILIGHT/GATTACA mash-up. Hopefully we're surprised.

Trailer is down

When I try to view the trailer it says that it's been removed due to a copyright claim... Do those people realize that a trailer is for publicity and as such you'd want as many people as possible to be able to see it? Fuck copyright and fuck those dumbasses. Seriously, how big an idiot do you have to be to remove a trailer, aka free publicity for your shitty movie, from Youtube? How can an ad infringe on a copyright? I just don't get it...

A friend of mine that works with me really is a Twilight Fan, but she loathes the Host.
