The first full trailer for author Stephenie Meyer's (Twilight) new film The Host has finally been released—and it looks like a cross between Twilight and a sci-fi The Bourne Identity. Want to see?

Set in the future and following a young woman in a world of body snatchers, The Host actually looks pretty interesting. The trailer is definitely cut to entice Twilight fans, and it doesn't look half bad.

It has a sci-fi thriller vibe, all wrapped up in the patented forbidden-relationship story Meyer's been telling for years.

Here's the synopsis for the book:

Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away. The earth has been invaded by a species that take over the minds of human hosts while leaving their bodies intact. Wanderer, the invading "soul" who has been given Melanie's body, didn't expect to find its former tenant refusing to relinquish possession of her mind.

As Melanie fills Wanderer's thoughts with visions of Jared, a human who still lives in hiding, Wanderer begins to yearn for a man she's never met. Reluctant allies, Wanderer and Melanie set off to search for the man they both love.

Check out the trailer below:

What do you think? Will this be Meyer's next monster hit?
