Twilight author Stephanie Meyer's New York Times bestseller has been adapted to the big after The Twilight Saga's success of course. Andrew Niccol directs an alien love story where a girl has been possessed by a body-snatching alien and since the girl refuses to surrender her mind to the alien, they both set out to help the boy the girls loves. The world has been over taken by an unseen alien threat that steals the bodies of it's victims and over powers the host minds. Only a small amount of renegade "wild" humans remain in the world. Melanie played by Saoirse Ronan, finds her alien threat named Wanderer. Wanderer is an alien "spirit" who has been warned by the difficulties in claiming a human host. Wanderer becomes deeply touched by Melanie's vivid dreams and memories. Wanderer instead joins with Melanie in aiding her quest.


When an unseen enemy threatens mankind by taking over their bodies and erasing their memories, Melanie will risk everything to protect the people she cares most about, proving that love can conquer all in a dangerous new world.
