I admit to being very doubtful of their validity (see @TheHostMovie tweets), but there are test screening(s) already being held for The Host. How finished the film will be when it is seen to these limited audiences is unknown. Maybe it is already mostly done and the producers are just looking for some feedback of what works and what doesn’t. It seems a little early for test screenings, but what do I know (that, apparently, is nothing).
I do find it odd that they would deliberately tell you what the film is that you are going to see. I get emails occasionally for test screenings in Dallas. They do not tell you the title of the film, but they might name drop a star or two. They have a target audience for the screenings. For example, they will only allow men and women age 30-45 in the screening. I have never been to a test screening because members of the press are not allowed in.
For this screening of The Host, it is for ages 13-49
