You’ve seen the movie trailer, now get the first-look stills from Twilight author Stephenie Meyer‘s next book-turned-movie, The Host. In the new batch of photos provided by Hollywood.com, you can go inside the world which is taken over by aliens (or Souls, as the extra-terrestrials are referred to) with Saoirse Ronan (The Lovely Bones, Atonement), Max Irons (Red Riding Hood), Jake Abel (I Am Number Four, Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief) and more of the cast. We spy blood, guns and romance (including a kiss!).
To give you a little bit more of a background, the alien race invades the Earth, but needs ‘host’ bodies to survive. So, the Souls choose the humans they wish to inhabit and erase their minds completely. However, the dilemma here is that one particular human, Mel (played by Saoirse), is almost unable to be controlled because her mind refuses the full transition. Instead, her and her Soul form a bond to help the other humans (who are not possessed, obviously).
The Host hits theaters March 29, 2013. Check out the gallery below to sneak a peek!
