First Images from 'The Host'

Update: has offers up two photos and an accompanying article. The issue will be on newsstands Friday.

Hunger Games fans who flock to theaters this weekend will also get a sneak peek at a very different kind of love triangle.

A teaser trailer for The Host, the film adaptation of the 2008 sci-fi romance novel by Twilight author Stephenie Meyer, will unspool before The Hunger Games begins.

"It's kind of an alien love story," director Andrew Niccol tells PEOPLE in this week's issue, which features an exclusive first look at the film, due March 29, 2013.

Irish actress Saoirse Ronan plays Melanie, one of the world's last remaining free spirits. As an alien named Wanderer assumes control of Melanie's soul, Melanie's remaining emotions still draw her to a handsome human named Jared (Max Irons).

Rounding out the cast: Diane Kruger, who plays Seeker, an alien sent to regulate the takeover of Earth's population.

Author Meyer is a producer on the film, but Twihards take note: vampires and werewolves are nowhere to be seen in The Host.


Just in time for The Host's trailer reveal, it looks like People is offering up the first images from the movie, including Melanie/Wanda, Jared, and the Seeker.
