Feeling withdrawal symptoms now that Twilight Saga has come to an end? I hear you…so what on earth are we going to do now? Well, more like what in the universe are we going to do? It seems that Twilight author Stephenie Meyer is here to save the day. Vampires, werewolves can finally move aside as we now get in touch with our intergalactic alien self!

The Host brings us a batch of rising new stars, and they’re pretty much home grown. Saoirse Ronan is the hottest young actress off the Emerald Isle, Screen Shot 2013-03-30 at 13.25.07and Max Irons seems to have inherited his dad’s talent for acting, and now they’re both together in one film – and mostly locking lips throughout the whole film! (see exhibit A!)

If that doesn’t get you booking your seat straight after reading this article then how about another great incentive? To celebrate the films release this weekend, I’ve just noticed that the fabulous Odeon cinema are giving you lot a chance to win a snazzy signed poster of the film. So if you want a chance of winning it (these rising stars may be worth a lot of money one day) then you better head to its Facebook page here.

You only have until Monday 1st April to snap this awesome prize up, so get on the case.

In the meantime, here’s a little more about the film, and its trailer.

Earth has been inhabited by an intellegent alien species known as “Souls.” Although an incredibly peaceful race, Souls can only survive by being inserted into a host body, taking control of their minds. In an effort to discover the secret whereabouts of some of the last remaining human resistances, the Soul Wanderer has been inserted into the human being Melanie Stryder (Saoirse Ronan), who was captured while attempting to locate her family. After insertion, Wanderer comes to realize an unsettling fact- Melanie has not faded away in consciousness, and in fact is putting up walls in her mind to prevent her family from being found. As time passes and Wanderer tries to break Melanie’s walls, she begins to feel sympathetic toward the humans Melanie loves so dearly- her brother Jamie and her partner, Jared Howe. Wanderer becomes torn between loyalty to her own race, trying to give information to the argumentative Seeker assigned to her, and her blossoming love for the humans in her memories. As Wanderer’s and Melanies trust builds, they embark on a journey through the desert to find the resistance, nearly dying in the process. Wanderer awakens to find herself captive in the den of the enemy, and realizes her problems have just begun: the humans want her dead, the doctor wants to experiment on her, and she may have accidentally lead the Seekers to some of the very last humans remaining.

Happy Easter everyone, enjoy! x
