No, this isn’t a trailer for a remake of Bong Joon-ho‘s monster movie The Host. This is a teaser trailer for another film that is being directed by Andrew Niccol (In Time) and based on a book written by Twilight author Stephenie Meyer.
The concept sounds kind of iffy to me and it’s really hard judging a film by its teaser trailer. I have no idea if the tone will turn out more like Twilight or like a more traditional sci-fi heavy film. The teaser doesn’t really reveal anything, but it does feature a few shots of space and tons of photos of people with the same blueish eyes.
I’ve honestly never heard of the book.
The Host stars Saoirse Ronan, Max Irons, Jake Abel, Diane Kruger, William Hurt and Frances Fisher. It will be released on March 29th. 2013.
