Brace for Edward and Bella: The Sequel.
Breaking Dawn Part 2 may finally conclude the Twilight saga (presumably), but that doesn't mean supernatural teen romance is biting the dust. Just in time, here comes The Host, adapted from Stephenie Meyer's follow-up to the Twilight books, which features a love story between a human guy and an alien girl this time around. (Although, to be fair, they did meet as humans this time around, at least.)
The Host stars Saoirse Ronan (Hanna) as a girl infected with an alien parasite. Her love for Max Irons (Red Riding Hood) manages to transcend the fact that her race of aliens has taken over his planet. (Ah, just like Romeo and Juliet.) It was written and directed by Andrew Niccol, who most recently brought us a similar sci-fi thriller with Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried in In Time.
Is Max Irons the new Robert Pattinson? Discuss.
