The Host (2013) – Review

1 Star

In the future Earth has been taken over by an alien race that occupies the bodies of every living being on the planet. Those lucky enough to have avoided assimilation are on the run. The possessed humans are differentiated by the luminous circular glow around the pupils of the eye. Thing is this alien race has successfully invaded our planet, not in the service of destruction, but perfecting our world. Yet there are small pockets of resistance fighters scattered throughout the land. One of those rebels is Melanie Stryker, a fierce young woman who dies in the opening scene, throwing herself through a high-rise window instead of facing capture. The alien beings simply reanimate the female with a foreign life-force in the hopes of using the girl’s memories to discover rebel locations.

Gary Ross Steps Away From ‘The Hunger Games’ Sequel. Who Should Take His Place?

The Internet has been freaking out since Tuesday when The Hunger Games director Gary Ross announced that he would not be returning to the director’s chair for the highly anticipated sequel Catching Fire. The news is distressing to Games fans since Ross not only directed but helped write the first movie with the trilogy’s author Suzanne Collins. According to the article in the Los Angeles Times, Ross had already met with Collins and tapped screenwriter Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog Millionaire) about the sequel before deciding to walk away from the franchise.

There’s still some debate amongst the rumor mill as to Ross’s exact reasons for leaving, but scheduling definitely seems to be a part of it. Catching Fire already has a set release date of Nov. 22, 2013 – only 19 months away. The production start also was pushed up to August when Fox announced that they would begin shooting the sequel to last year’s X-Men: First Class to January. Jennifer Lawrence, who stars in both films, is contractually obligated to make X-Men her schedule priority, thus giving Ross only four months to prepare for the shoot. He was given twice as long for The Hunger Games, which had a less complicated setting and action sequences, not to mention far less pressure to deliver.
