Max Irons may be the star of the upcoming young adult sci-fi romance "The Host," in which humans are inhabited by a peaceful race of aliens, but rest assured, no alien is controlling him. Before the March 29 release of "The Host," Irons sat down with NextMovie in New York City to discuss pronunciation of co-star Saoirse Ronan's name, knowing everyone in England, and whose brain he would choose to inhabit (hint: one option begins with a "Kim" and ends with a "Jong Un").

Just as "The Twilight Saga" comes to an end, Stephenie Meyer's next book-to-film adaptation is getting a brand new trailer. The updated peek at "The Host" released today (see it here!) will run in theaters before "Breaking Dawn - Part 2," and we were lucky enough to chat with the two young male leads about bringing the book's unusual love story to life..
Max Irons and Jake Abel star as Jared and Ian, respectively, in the upcoming film that's already generating tons of buzz. In talking about "The Host," out March 29, Irons told NextMovie, "It's a mistake to dwell too much on the consequences of a piece of work that you're making. The best thing you can do as a group is to just try and create that world."
But who would win in a battle of werewolves, vampires and aliens?
Aliens, of course, Abel insisted. "They have the technology to destroy from a distance," he said.
Watch what the two actors had to say about their roles, and how difficult it was to get Meyer to spill details about a potential "Host" sequel.

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. Get More »
Step aside, vampires and werewolves — 2013 marks the year of the alien takeover with "The Host."
The upcoming adaptation of "Twilight" author Stephenie Meyer's sci-fi novel centers around Melanie (Saoirse Ronan), a human serving as a host for Wanderer, one of the alien Souls that have invaded Earth. Wanderer struggles to maintain power over Melanie, whose strong emotions and memories cause friction between body and soul. Eventually, they fall for the same human guy — played by Max Irons. Diane Kruger is The Seeker, the nasty alien threatening to put a stop to the freaky love triangle.
The film doesn't hit theaters until March 29, 2013, but they're releasing images now. Check out today's new look at Wanda.
Stephenie Meyer's money-makin' mojo isn't just limited to massive book sales. She's also four for four on resultant box office pillages, and the folks at Open Road Films would love nothing more than for her first non-"Twilight" book-to-screen adaptation, "The Host," to become the next focal point for the rabid attention of her fan base. Rumor has it, Meyer's currently tapping out the long-overdue sequel to her sci-fi novel, too, so there's definitely some franchise potential at play with this story.
As for the first post-vamp adaptation, here's an all-inclusive guide to what we know about the movie so far. Get More »
We all know what happened when she gave an ordinary girl the affection of both a vampire and a werewolf (the word "phenomenon" comes to mind), and now we're starting to see what's to come of her first sci-fi story "The Host," which has an even more peculiar love triangle at the center.
The final point of an intergalactic love triangle (or rectangle, rather... we'll get to that later) has been found.
"The Host" is based on Stephanie Meyer's only non-"Twilight" work to date and tells the tale of Melanie Stryder (Saoirse Ronan), a woman who shares her body with an alien force known as Wanderer. Get More »
Catherine Hardwick's edgy re-imagining of the lady in red is hitting Blu-Ray today, and to celebrate the release, Hollywood Crush has the exclusive cut of the blooper reel.
Those "Red Riding Hood" stars sure are attached to their movie set... in the literal sense.
Blooper reels are among the most beloved special features in the DVD world -- probably because seeing the stars flub their lines or get snagged on the set always makes us chuckle. This is one you'll want to watch again and again, so head over to Hollywood Crush and check it out.
Can a composer truly be declared immortal before a feature film about his life has graced the silver screen? Mozart got his movie years ago, as did Beethoven.
And now it's Vivaldi's turn.
Director Boris Damast (who doesn't have much to speak of under his list of credits beyond the widely panned "Pros & Cons" from over a decade ago) is helming an as-of-now untitled biopic about this famed composer, The Playlist reports.
Despite his lack of street cred, Damast has rallied a star-studded cast, which has Max Irons ("Red Riding Hood") and Claire Foy ("Season of the Witch") locked in, as well as Elle Fanning and Neve Campell in the final stages of talks to join. Get More »
