The Host Poster, Saoirse Ronan

Open Road Films

Saoirse Ronan is looking all kinds of awesome as Melanie Stryder.

The poster for Open Road Films' The Host has debuted online and features the 18-year-old actress who plays the sci-fi thriller's heroine standing tall against what looks to be a solar eclipse. 

The character one-sheet, which AMC Theatres unveiled on its Facebook page, is the first in a series promoting director Andrew Niccol's eagerly awaited feature adaptation of Twilight author Stephenie Meyer's novel of the same name.

The story follows the journey of Ronan's character, Stryder, who after having her body taken over by a parasitic alien "Soul" called Wanderer, aka Wanda, refuses to fade away. Despite her mission rooting out other human survivors, Wanda develops an emotional bond with Melanie, prompting the uninvited E.T. to help save mankind from extinction.

The Host hits theaters on March 29, 2013.
