Saoirse Ronan stars in The Host teaser: watch now

The Host has debuted a new teaser trailer online, with Saoirse Ronan delivering a dire warning to us puny Earthlings that the world as we know it no longer belongs to us…

Adapted from the novel by Stephenie Meyer (she of The Twilight Saga ), The Host will be set in a world in which a parasitic alien race has invaded Earth, controlling the population by assuming mastery over their consciousness.

Not every human has succumbed however, and Saoirse Ronan’s Melanie is one such survivor battling to retain her individual will…

Take a look at the new teaser below…

That flashing-eye business is quite creepy isn’t it? We’d assume that that’s the tell-tale sign of somebody who is hosting one of the aliens. Aside from that, there’s little in the way of actual footage, but the trailer certainly succeeds in evoking a grim, paranoid tone.

Directed by Andrew Niccol and also starring Max Irons, Jake Abel, Diane Kruger, William Hurt, and Frances Fisher, The Host will open in the UK on 29 March 2013.
