Video: Yahoo Movies Talks to Stephenie Meyer and Andrew Niccol about The Host

Yahoo! Movies has posted an interview with Stephenie Meyer and Andrew Niccol from Comic Con about The Host.  

SPOILERS: The Host Footage at SDCC

The first footage from The Host was shown at the tail end of the Breaking Dawn 2 panel. If you don’t want to be spoiled I suggest you stop reading now.

We saw a series of small clips, not a full trailer.

Melanie falls from the window.

Wanderer wakes up and is asked for her name.

The Seeker questions Wanderer about her host. Wanderer remembers Melanie and Jamie playing in the water when the Seekers came from them. Melanie screams at Wanderer not to tell about Jamie and then says “I hate you” when Wanderer does tell.

Melanie and Jamie are playing in the rain with Jared. They run inside to take cover, but Jared and Melanie kiss before going into the house.

Jared is outside of Wanderers cell in the tunnels when Ian and the others come to get her. Ian and Jared fight until Ian manages to pull her out and tries to strangle her. Jeb comes around the corner, shoots the roofs, and says that everyone is a guest in his house, including Wanderer.

The final scene shown was a chase scene between the humans and the Souls. The Souls drive all silver cars and fly all silver helicopters. Instead of being taken prisoner, a few humans (not Jared or Ian) drive right at a wall intent on crashing and killing themselves. We did not see the crash as the footage cut just before they hit the wall.

Never Before Seen Intro to The Host

As IVillage reports:

Stephenie Meyer, the famed author behind the uber-successful Twilight books, is taking another of her novels to the big screen. The film adaptation of her 2008 bestseller The Host — which stars The Lovely Bones actress Saoirse Ronan — will hit theaters in March 2013. And while the film’s release is still months away, we have a special treat to tide you over.

iVillage got its hands on Meyer’s never-before-seen intro to the book, which tells the story of an alien race that takes over Earth and its inhabitants.
