‘The Host’ Poster: Saoirse Ronan Shines

It’s a good week to be an extra-terrestrial. Hot on the heels of our announcement that MTV.com will EXCLUSIVELY premiere the first trailer for the big-screen adaptation of Stephenie Meyer’s “The Host,” comes a first look at the film’s one-sheet, courtesy of Fandango!

The poster depicts (from left) Max Irons, Saoirse Ronan and Jake Abel in the post-apocalyptic desert wasteland where the tale takes place. Saoirse plays dual roles here, as human Melanie and as alien Wanderer, who inhabits Melanie’s body but isn’t able to completely take over her mind. (The illuminated irises here are a giveaway that it’s Wanderer featured…) Co-stars Max and Jake play the respective love interests of Melanie and Wanderer. (An even more head-scratching romantic puzzle than a vampire-human-werewolf love triangle!)

Co-starring Diane Kruger, William Hurt and Frances Fisher, “The Host” will invade theaters beginning March 29, 2013. But, of course, MTV.com will be giving you a sneak peek of the trailer tomorrow at 7 a.m. Set your alarms, Hosties. (Can we make that a thing?)
