Iíve had the pleasure of speaking to Jake Abel several times before. Heís a fantastic actor and an amazing guy to just chat and hang out with. Yet his THE HOST co-star I had never met before, and after doing so I am happy to say that he is pretty damn cool as well.

The new trailer for The Host looks like Twilight with aliens, guns, and Diane Kruger

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

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...
