Get excited — The Host is headed to Bluray and DVD!
Based on the book by author Stephenie Meyer, a parasitic alien soul is injected into the body of Melanie Stryder (Saoirse Ronan). But, instead of carrying out her race’s mission of taking over the Earth, she forms a bond with her host and sets out to aid other free humans.
Bonus features include deleted scenes, “Bringing The Host To Life”, a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film, featuring interviews with Ms. Meyer, Saoirse, Max Irons, and Jake Abel and the “Seeker PSA”, a feature commentary with Ms. Meyer, screenwriter/director Andrew Niccol, and producer Nick Wechsler.
The Host hit shelves and digital retailers on July 9th!
Jake Abel and Max Irons hit up the SiriusXM Studios on Friday morning (March 29) in New York City.
The two Host actors chatted up their new film, out in theaters NOW.
“I first met and worked with Saoirse [Ronan] when she was 14 and I was 18. I’m pretty sure before I met her, at that point, I was going, ‘Syeee-orrrrshhh? Sourcey?’ Really trying to overcomplicate it and emphasize it. Just horrific. But I rarely call her by her real name anyway,” Jake shared with Next Movie about pronouncing Saoirse‘s name.
He added, “[I call her] Sersh. Skeesh. Skeesha. Skersh. Pretty much anything that comes to mind. Anything with a ‘shh’ and a ‘ck’ in there, and she’s like ‘I hear it, what do you need?’”
Saoirse is also pictured below arriving at LAX airport in Los Angeles on Thursday night (March 28).

“The most amazing part of it all was working with William Hurt and Frances Fisher, these two legends that I’ve watched since I was young – I’m sure they would hate me saying that (laughs),” Jake recently shared.
He added, “But they’re absolute legends, it was a thrill to get in the ring with them everyday and learn something new. It was a real treat, it was a real treat even just watching them work on ‘The Host.’ I really enjoyed that.”
FYI: Max wore a Gucci suit with Christian Louboutin shoes. Jake wore an Emporio Armani suit and shirt with Dior shoes and a Jaeger-LeCoutre watch.
