Principal photography on Andrew Niccol’s adaptation of Twilight creator Stephenie Meyer’s sci-fi novel, The Host, only just commenced last month, but a teaser trailer is already here. That’s because Open Road Films knows that the movie’s target young adult (YA) demographic will be turning out in hordes this weekend for The Hunger Games – and the studio hopes to start building awareness for Niccol’s project by premiering a preview with that surefire blockbuster.
