Here is the first trailer for The Host the film adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's bestselling paranormal romance. In the book, a species of peaceful, alien parasites has taken over the Earth by trickery. Each parasite is merged into a human, where it takes over the human's life. The aliens call themselves "Souls." One Soul called Wanderer or Wanda, who is thousands of years old, is placed into the mind of a human resistance fighter named Melanie (Saoirse Ronan) and sent to find the last remaining humans.

Melanie despises Wanda, but over time comes to care for her. Eventually Melanie and Wanda eventually grow to be friends and Wanda starts to feel guilty for taking over Melanie's body. The more Wanda is inside a human, the more human she becomes raising the question of who is assimilating who. There are also some sticky romantic issues due to the fact that they are in love with two different men. Max Irons, Diane Kruger and Jake Abel also star. Take a look:
