First Peek Into the Film World of ‘The Host’

A girl who regularly posts about magazine pictures (and reports that she didn’t realize ‘The Host’ was so popular), @epnebelle, tweeted about these pictures she had scanned/taken of People magazine’s article just before 7 pm this evening. The article included 3 photos from the film so far: one of Melanie (Ronan) looking out of a window where we can see her reflection (above), what looks like the scene when Jared (Irons) and Melanie first meet in the abandoned house, and a third of The Seeker (Kruger). You can see the entire page from the magazine below.

UPDATE #2: Higher quality scan provided by The Host Movie Fans! (below)

UPDATE:  People Magazine has posted an article about the photos and the film online.  They included two photos that can be seen below.

The article from the website is below:

Hunger Games fans who flock to theaters this weekend will also get a sneak peek at a verydifferent kind of love triangle.

A teaser trailer for The Host, the film adaptation of the 2008 sci-fi romance novel by Twilight author Stephenie Meyer, will unspool before The Hunger Games begins.

“It’s kind of an alien love story,” director Andrew Niccol tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue, which features an exclusive first look at the film, due March 29, 2013.

Irish actress Saoirse Ronan plays Melanie, one of the world’s last remaining free spirits. As an alien named Wanderer assumes control of Melanie’s soul, Melanie’s remaining emotions still draw her to a handsome human named Jared (Max Irons).

Rounding out the cast: Diane Kruger, who plays Seeker, an alien sent to regulate the takeover of Earth’s population.

Author Meyer is a producer on the film, but Twihards take note: vampires and werewolves are nowhere to be seen in The Host.

For more exclusive scenes from The Host and Ronan’s view on her characters’ bizarre love triangle, pick up this week’s issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday”

  • Stocked! Also it’s good to know where the scans came from, I wish all fansites would be as careful when specifying their source

    Stephenie, I can’t wait to see this movie.  I admit to being frustrated at it taking so long, but I understand, I guess.  Thanks for posting the pics.  I hope they do the book justice.  I love the way you write and it doesn’t always come out well on the big screen -and it’s not that they leave out so much.  With the Twilight series of films I was impressed with some of the things they did till I saw Breaking Dawn part 1. I thought they butchered your book with that one.  Sigh.   Like I said, I love the way you write!!

    This is awesome! Ronan looks wonderful. I’m surprised that they didn’t dye Kruger’s hair, but it’s not a big deal. I can’t wait for the teaser trailer!

  • Alexandra

    I am in France, I hope I’ll be able to see the trailer, if I can this will be the best week ever! Hunger Games and The Host in one week!

    I just noticed that Ronan’s hair looks blonde in the “Jared-Mel-initial-meeting” picture, but she obviously has dark hair in the other two. If it is blonde in that one, what will the story be behind it? Before the alien invasion, Melanie used to dye her hair and it slowly reverted back to the natural brown?

    oh my, oh my, oh my.. first look at our beloved characters 😀  I can’t wait to see this on the big screen! 
    (still not sure about the actors, but hey!.. for once I don’t care, I love the book and as long as they keep close to it I am happy 😀 )

    i love the casting, but.. in the book the seeker is described as being small with black hair and always in all black clothing but in the picture she is blonde in a white outfit.. it would have been easy enough to change diane’s hair and wardrobe to keep it true to the book
