The Host Movie: What We Have So Far


Next Movie has a rundown on what we know about the Host movie so far.

Release Date

March 29, 2013

Star Power

Festival sweetheart Diane Kruger has garnered a faithful indie fan community (though many may be keeping tabs to observe her ever-amazing fashion choices), and she’s had her turn with big-budgeters like “National Treasure” and “Troy.” Kruger definitely brings some notoriety into play, while Oscar winner William Hurtimbues some serious credibility to the line-up. Of all the names, though, story writer and producer Stephenie Meyer is by far the biggest on the block.

Next Factor

Oscar-nominated Saoirse Ronan, fresh off her back-to-back leads in “The Lovely Bones” and “Hanna,” is widely considered a star in the making. While some people still don’t know how to pronounce the Irish native’s first name (“SEER-shuh”), others curiously await the direction this youngster’s career goes next. Meanwhile, Brit Max Irons, who’s still very new to the game, has his own fellowship circle that has demanded he be considered for high profile projects like “The Mortal Instruments.” With both of these kids on the cusp, they’ve got a real shot here at catapulting into the big leagues. Other youngsters with potential to boost are Boyd Holbrook and Chandler Canterbury.

Saoirse Ronan Tells Hit Fix Why She Picked The Host

Hit Fix caught up with Saoirse Ronan at the Toronto International Film Festival and asked her about her current project (believe it or not a vampire movie) and The Host.


As someone who hasn’t really jumped into the studio movie world, what made you go to do something like ‘The Host’?

I loved the concept.  I think it’s an amazing concept and I really liked the book and just the idea of creatures coming onto our planet and trying to perfect our race and our world and get rid of any negativity in any way, which of course would never work really because suddenly you’re taking away human nature and human spirit and all these different things.  But it raises a lot of questions like that and that was really, really interesting to me.  Then they said that they [brought on] Andrew Niccol to do it, who has made brilliant films in the past that have conceptually been mind-blowing and beautiful.  So, he was perfect for it and I mean the main producer on it, Nick Wechsler, was fantastic.  He brought everyone together and Stephanie and everything.  So, there were a lot of things there that really attracted me to it.

Max Irons Talks The Host and Keeping It Professional

Max Irons has another interview this time with The Huffington Post for his Macy’s Inc campaign where he mentions The Host, and not wanting too much fame.

Max Irons Does Not Want Robert Pattinson’s Fame

Max Irons plays Jared in The Host. He talks about his Macy’s campaign and not wanting to be too famous.

And, you’re the lead in The Host. Twilight fans are notoriously intense, are you ready for R-Patz fame?
“No, no…no. Look, its great for him and he’s doing great Kronenberg projects which come of the back of doing something like Twilight, but you also have to sacrifice a part of your life, and that I don’t particularly want to sacrifice.”

Frances Fisher Surprised By The Host Fanbase

E! chatted with Frances Fisher who plays Maggie in The Host.

“I have no idea what people’s sensibilities are, but Stephenie Meyer has a finger on a pulse of the youth of this country, of the world actually,” Frances Fisher, who plays Saoirse Ronan’s character’s aunt Maggie in the movie, told us.

“When I started tweeting that I was doing this I was getting responses from France, South America and Russia,” she said of the film’s hype. “There’s so many people already who are aware of The Host.”

How The Host Stills Play Out In The Movie

We were able to see the advance footage of The Host at Comic Con. Now that we did, we have some information on where the released stills fit in in the context. It’s not every still, but we have pretty solid information on several of them. Diane Kruger is seen in this white suit which is apparently the official Seeker dress code. It’s very visually stunning and oddly threatening against all the other normal colors in the film. In the books she is short and brunette; however I can tell you that the tall Diane Kruger looming over Wanderer and in another sequence chasing down Melanie in the abandoned building is very visually threatening. I don’t know that a short brunette would have had the same visual effect. You can also see a tiny bit of silver car in the shot. The Seekers all drive these bright silver (almost like mirrors) cars. In one of the clips you saw the Seekers (at least 6) show up at Melanie’s house which was on a Louisiana bayou. Melanie and Jamie hid under the house which juts out into the water. Their father commits suicide via handgun rather than be taken alive. In a later clip the Seekers chase down a truck of renegades. The occupants of the truck also commit suicide by crashing the truck into a wall rather than being taken.

The next two shots are interconnected and happen within a minute of each other.


The Seeker asks Wanderer to probe Melanie’s memory to discover where the renegades are. After a moment of resistance she gives up Jamie’s name and Melanie’s inner voice screams at her in defiance. Then she sees this entire montage of Melanie’s past life from happy days with her dog, to swimming with Jamie, to hooking up with Jared(of note she doesn’t mention Jared’s name). The above stills are part of the Jared flashback. They are in front of an RV in the middle of nowhere and Melanie and Jared are swing dancing while Jamie holds the boom box(first photo). In fact the dance sequence is almost identical to the Breaking Dawn wedding where Jackson flips Ashley upside down. It then starts to rain and they all go to rush inside. Jamie goes in first but Jared stops Melanie at the door and he gives her a passionate kiss as she is backed up against the trailer. The second photo is immediately post kiss.

This next shot wasn’t in the clips, but Jake Abel is wearing the exact clothing that he was in the clip that was shown. Kyle, Ian and another guys go to the cell where Wanderer is being kept and Jared stands guard. Kyle and the other guy double-team Jared (who gets in a hell of a good sucker punch to Kyle to start things off BTW) while Kyle yells for Ian to “kill it”. Ian starts to strangle Wanderer. Wanderer just submits as Melanie’s voice is screaming for her to fight back. In the clip you can see that the emotion of trying to murder someone who isn’t resisting is deeply affecting Ian and he starts to let up. Uncle Jeb firing off a rifle finally breaks up the scene. So I’m taking a guess that it’s him mulling over the fact that he just tried to kill someone.
