If you're a Twilight fan, then you should be excited about this film.
Adapted from the novel of the same name by Twilight author Stephenie Meyer, the film is set in a world controlled by alien entities called the Souls that inhabit the bodies of humans, transforming them into helpless hosts. Saoirse Ronan plays a human who gets captured by the aliens to be become a vessel for a Soul called the Wanderer, and track down the resistance formed by the untransformed humans.
She, quite predictably, suffers from an identity crisis and, soon enough, sides with the resistance. Can they prevail? Watch The Host to find out.
Verdict: The critics have trashed the film, but they're probably not the target audience anyway. Watch it if you liked films like the Twilight series and The Hunger Games.
