Awareness on The Host, based on the novel by "Twilight" author Stephenie Meyer seems rather low. Is the fanbase for this one that much lower or am I just not looking in the right areas?

The film is described as 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.

The Host hits theaters on March 29, have a look at the latest trailer below and let me know what you think.

    It depends on what you mean by awareness, Brad. I bet there are people who are aware of its release come late March - whether or not they want to see it another thing. The same goes for Oblivion, that-one-Will-Smith-movie-with-his-son, and whatever movie is coming out before June.

    Has it even been promoted? Audiences may stay away in droves because they think its a chick flick, like Twilight, rather than a thought provokingl sci fi movie.

    Actually looks pretty good. I might see this now.

    I became aware of The Host in 2010 when I happened to see a display for the books at Wal-Mart. It was kinda hard to miss the "From the creator of Twilight" tagline. The trailers for this flick are intriguing but slightly underwhelming. Plus, did the production crew steal all the sets from 2005's illfated, The Island? I'd say awareness for this film is modest.

    Thems the facts

    THIS Is from the Woman who wrote 'Twilight'?! But.. this actually looks GOOD. Ronan is a force to be reckoned with, ESPECIALLY after 'Hanna', and it also stars Jeremy Irons' son, Max. This could be a surprise hit, and much more thought provoking and intriguing than a lot of other sci-fi movies, and I HOPE answers all the questions it asks, unlike Prometheus. If nothing else, we get to see Ronan being her usual powerhouse self, and some inventive sci-fi.
