With "The Host" arriving in just over a month and the chatter around it has remained...minimal, certainly far less than what was launched upon Stephenie Meyer's previous YA hit, "Twilight," the marketing has changed gears. In the fall, we got the very tweeny version of the trailer, that was clearly geared to a certain demographic, and now we have a more action-oriented spot for everyone else. But yeah, still looks kinda whatever.

Farewell, "Twilight." After four years, and five movies, there are (until the inevitable reboot/spin-off/extra sequel) no longer any movies in the super-popular Stephenie Meyer-penned vampire franchise to look forward to/dread. The final movie, "Breaking Dawn Pt. 2" (our review here) is in theaters, doing the usual blockbuster numbers, but for the near future at least, that's it.

With "Twilight" coming to an end this week (NOOOO!), your mom and sister will have more options just around the corner for supernatural tween romances. At Warner Bros., they're hoping "Beautiful Creatures" will fill that void, while Summit is banking on Stephenie Meyer once again with "The Host." And the first full length trailer for the movie promises the same old stuff in brand new packaging.

After another misstep with his return to sci-fi "In Time," Andrew Niccol has turned to something a bit safer, adapting "Twilight" author Stephenie Meyer's "The Host." While the film doesn't seem to generating the same levels of excitement as Meyer's bloodsucker movies or fellow young adult novel "The Hunger Games," they have gone for the same formula with two fresh-faced male leads (Max Irons and Jake Abel) and an empathetic female (Saoirse Ronan) as the audience's surrogate at the story's heart.

Yes, lots of new posters to dazzle your eyeballs, so let's jump right in. There are few things surer in life than death and taxes, but at least this week, you can add "On The Road" appearing at the Cannes Film Festival. With the festival set to unveil their slate on Thursday, the new film from Walter Salles is one of surer bets out there. The latest -- and sunniest -- one sheet from the film has arrived, this time focusing on the lovely Kirsten Dunst who plays Carolyn Cassady in the film. She was married to Neal Cassady and was a friend of the Beats including Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg. And sorry KStew fans, we're still waiting on a poster for her....

They’re in for a treat because less than six months after the last ‘Twilight’ movie comes out, Meyer’s latest novel, “The Host,” comes to life on the big screen on March 29, 2013.
