A third trailer (above) and at least one other teaser have been released over the last couple of weeks for big screen adaptation of Stephanie Meyer's The Host.
As I've said before, I thoroughly enjoyed Meyer’s novel, which is told from the perspective of Wanderer, a thousand-plus year-old alien whose species invades Earth and takes over the human population. The aliens, called Souls, are inherently altruistic and abhor violence; their preferred method of invasion is a gradual and quiet take-over of individuals until the entire population of a planet is inhabited by Souls. Earth is the ninth planet for Wanderer, who has been on more worlds (and thus inhabited more species) than most Souls, who tend to settle on one of their first several planets and live out the rest of their lives there. But Wanderer soon discovers that humans are different than any other species she has inhabited—most particularly in that her host (a girl named Melanie) refuses to surrender herself to Wanderer as all her other hosts have done. As Wanderer spends time on Earth and forms a relationship with her host, she starts to rethink her species’ philosophy and intent for the planet.
