If you thought Twilight was the only epic love story that Stephenie Meyer had in her armory, you thought wrong!
In eight days, the author’s next saga, The Host, hits theaters. A mix of action, romance, and plenty of thrills, the film adaptation centers in on Melanie Stryder (Saoirse Ronan), a girl who fights to retain her body—and mind—in a world that’s been taken over by parasitic aliens. As Melanie fights against the “Wanderer” who’s claimed hold of her body, she eventually gains enough strength to convince her inhabited mind to find her still-human loved ones, namely her better half, Jared (Max Irons). The reunited pair rally to prove that love is strong enough to overcome anything, even a chic Diane Kruger as the otherworldly “Seeker” who aggressively aims to wipe out any human resistance in a seemingly perfect world.
Don’t worry—we won’t give too much away from the soon-to-be box office hit. But here’s a few more stills from Meyer’s latest film adaptation, with a special clip that’ll leave you on the edge of your seat.
