After four years of domination on the part of "The Twilight Saga," the name "Stephenie Meyer" will probably stir images of lovelorn teenagers, weeping in the Pacific Northwest. So when the first trailer for "The Host" boasts the same author, we know where your head will likely go.
But, but, with no disrespect to Ms. Meyer, of course, the name that should be catching your eye is that of Andrew Niccol, the writer and director of thew new film starring Saoirse Ronan and Max Irons. Niccol is responsible for heady sci-fi like "Gattaca" and "In Time," along with "Lord of War," a movie that had Nicolas Cage acting suspiciously normal.
With the fandom attached to Meyer's name and the group that is likely to seek out a new Niccol film, "The Host" might just have the most eclectic audience of the year when "The Host" opens on March 29, 2013.
