‘The Host’ at Comic-Con

by Morgan Charlesworth on July 13, 2012

Author Stephanie Meyer, who wrote the popular series Twilight, will be making an appearance with the rest of the Twilight cast at Comic-Con this year. While there Meyers is planning a surprise for her next novel turned film The Host. Speculation is they will be showing the first trailer of the freshly wrapped film to entice Twihards to support her first science fiction novel turned film.

The story follows Melanie Stryder, played by Saoirse Ronan, who is captured by aliens and injected with a parasitic alien soul. Stryder is one of the only remaining survivors of the alien invasion and she refuses to reveal where the rest of her people are hiding. The injected alien soul’s mission is to break Stryder into telling her people’s whereabouts by bending her mind and infiltrating her memories only to find the girl’s spirit is highly resistant to their tactics. This intrigues the alien and it becomes obsessed with her memories and free will.

There are some similarities between Twilight‘s Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner’s love triangle and The Host‘s love triangle among characters played by Ronan, Max Irons and Jake Abel.

The film was shot in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and is set to release Easter weekend 2013.
