The Host is a 2013 American romantic science fiction thriller film adapted from Stephenie Meyer’s novel of the same name. Written and directed by Andrew Niccol, the film stars Saoirse Ronan, Max Irons, Jake Abel, William Hurt, and Diane Kruger. Released on March 29, 2013, the film has been generally panned by critics.
Emily Browning, who portrays Pet in this film, was Stephenie Meyer’s original choice for the role of Bella Swan in ‘Twilight , but she turned it down.
When Melanie jumps through the window to escape the seekers at the beginning of the movie, she is seen falling several stories and creating a crater in the cement pavement. At the very beginning of the end credits, the camera pulls away from a planet and it is the exact crater shape as the one Melanie made when she fell.
Although most automotive enthusiasts could probably care less about the upcoming sci-fi/ teen love story film The Host, its latest trailer features a certain upscale sports car that is worth a look. Based on a novel by Stephenie Meyer (Twilight), The Host tells the story of a parasitic alien race called “Souls” that have invaded Earth and have begun to possess the minds of the human race. The trailer is mostly void of details, but it appears that the aliens prefer to travel in chrome vehicles, in particular a chrome Lotus Evora.
The Lotus Evora is a sports car produced by British car manufacturer Lotus.The car, which was developed under the project name Project Eagle, was launched as the Evora on 22 July 2008 at the British International Motor Show.
The Lotus Evora is based on the first all-new vehicle platform from Lotus Cars since the introduction of the Lotus Elise in 1995 (the Exige, introduced in 2000, and the 2006 Europa S are both derivatives of the Elise. Evora was planned to be the first vehicle of three to be built on the same platform.
The human race has been taken over by small parasitic aliens called ‘Souls’. The Souls travel to distant planets en masse, in individual capsules, inserting themselves individually into a host body of that planet’s dominant species. The Soul completely replaces the consciousness of its host, though they are able to access the host’s memories. Occupied hosts are identifiable by silver rings that form in the hosts’ eyes.
The trailer showcases a pair of chrome Evora cars and a chrome helicopter in an impressive highway chase scene. One Lotus Evora sports coupe is scene skidding across the freeway whilst dodging bullets.
