First footage of Stephenie Meyer’s THE HOST film debuts at Comic-Con #SDCC

The first footage from The Host, the film adaptation of Stephenie Meyer’s book of the same name, was revealed today at the end of the Breaking Dawn, Part 2, panel at Comic Con in San Diego. There is a link at the bottom of this post to get all the details of what was shown. Meanwhile, from E! Online:

Director Andrew Niccol was also there to present the footage, featuring Saoirse Ronan pulling double duty as one of the few unpossessed humans left and the crystal-eyed doppelganger (what is it with Meyers’ characters and their eyes?) created to take her over.

We saw shades of A.I., Terminator and various other apocalyptic, long-shots-in-the-desert movies—but, impressively, no Twilight, minus the need for contacts—in the five minutes we were treated to.

“Thanks, guys, so much!” Meyer told the whooping crowd, concluding what was her first appearance at Comic-Con since showing up in support of the first Twilight.
