In The Host, the Earth has been taken over by the ‘Souls’, a parasitic alien race. Melanie Stryder (played by Saoirse Ronan) is one of the last free humans alive but the Souls are determined to find her and the rest of the resistance movement.
The film is based on the novel of Twilight saga author Stephenie Meyer. It premiered in Los Angeles and also stars German actress Diane Kruger as one of the aliens.
Meanwhile, Danny Boyle’s new film Trance goes on general release in the UK this month. The Slumdog Millionaire director’s movie is an art heist thriller starring Rosario Dawson, James McAvoy and Vincent Cassel.
