Trying to figure out Saoirse Ronan's character in the upcoming alien invasion flick "The Host" can make your head hurt a little (okay, a lot). Well, here's something that may relieve the pain. It's a brand-new featurette that has Ronan offering some insights about her character Melanie Stryder, the teenage girl who becomes a human host to a parasitic alien called Wanda. The clip also contains a ton of new footage, including scenes with Diane Kruger as the alien ruler known as The Seeker, and William Hurt as Melanie's Uncle, who turns out to be a leader of a clan of human survivors. Check it out, above.
The film is written and directed by Andrew Niccol and adapted from the best-selling novel by Twilight's Stephenie Meyer, and will be hitting theaters nationwide on March 29th.
From Stephenie Meyer (author of The Twilight Saga) comes The Host, a love story set in the future, where Earth is occupied by a species who erase the minds of their human hosts, leaving their bodies intact. Melanie Stryder (Saoirse Ronan) is one of the last surviving humans who fights back, risking her life for the people she cares about most -- Jared (Max Irons), Ian (Jake Abel), her brother Jamie (Chandler Canterbury) and her Uncle Jeb (William Hurt) -- proving that love can conquer all.
