Boyfriends beware. A new trailer for “The Host”, adapted from the book by Stephanie Meyer (Of “Twilight” fame) is set to debut Thursday. Probably worse news is that it will premiere during a Google hangout with a few cast members and Meyer herself, which can also be viewed on the movie’s Youtube channel. The film stars Diane Kruger, Saoirse Ronan, Max Irons and Jake Abel and deals with an alien invasion who snatches bodies except for a human resistance. Hmmm…aliens that snatch people’s bodies. Almost sounds like “Invasion of the Body Snatchers”, except less ground breaking. Or interesting. Or cool.
