With Stephenie Meyer's "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" about to hit theaters and bring to a close the pop culture phenomenon that has swept the globe for the past four years, fans and pundits alike have been wondering what could possibly fill the void.
Someone sure has a pretty good sense of timing.
Set in a not-so-distant-future, "The Host" tells the tale of a plucky (or is that spunky?) young gal by the name of Melanie (played by Oscar nominee Saoirse Ronan) who gets herself all taken over by an alien parasite. Hate it when that happens. Unlike all the other hosts, though, Melanie manages to fight back in an attempt to stay human and rejoin her one true love, manly freedom fighter Jared ("Red Riding Hood's" Max Irons).
So will "The Host" turn out to be the next "Twilight Saga? Check out the first trailer, courtesy of MTV, and see for yourself.
