First footage of The Host feels like Invasion of the Body Snatchers meets Dawson's Creek

Holy cow, the first ever footage from Stephenie Meyer's latest book adaptation The Host is drowning in angsty teen romance. Watch as an collection of attractive teens run through tunnels while dealing with their alien possessed friend played by Saoirse Ronan (who plays "Wanda" the alien stuck inside the teen Melanie's body). Forget the alien vs. human war raging on the surface of the planet — how's Melanie's boyfriend going to react now that his girlfriend has an alien inside of her?

This is one insane alien soap opera milkshake, and we're completely ready to drink it up. Check out the first ever footage from a set visit. We didn't think it was possible to out-teen drama Twilight. Stephanie Meyer is still the reigning champ when it comes to fresh-faced kids angsting about their feelings.
