The stars of ‘Twilight’ author Stephanie Meyer’s next big love story, including Saoirse Ronan and Jake Abel, are preparing to make their way down the red carpet in Hollywood for the Mar. 19 world premiere of ‘The Host’ beginning at 9:30pm ET!
With Stephanie Meyer‘s Twilight Saga sadly a thing of the past, it’s time to get excited about the next great love story in the author’s repertoire — The Host! The film adaptation of Stephanie’s book, starring Saoirse Ronan, Jake Abel, Max Irons, and Diane Kruger has its world premiere at Hollywood’s famed Cinerama Dome on Mar. 19, with the red carpet being streamed live to fans unavailable to attend the premiere in person!
The live stream, being hosted by Celebuzz.com’s Hyla and Michelle Marie, will catch each star as they make their way down the red carpet. Fans who tune into the live show will have the chance to have their questions answered by the cast live on-air and be entered to win prizes by tweeting to @Celebuzz using the hashtag #TheHostLive!
The Stars Of ‘The Host’ Don’t Want To Be Compared To ‘Twilight’
While The Host is written by the same author as Twilight, some of its stars aren’t so quick to welcome comparisons between the two! “It is a very lazy comparison, because Twilight was a phenomenon unto itself,” Max told VMAN. ”[Robert] Pattinson was chased down the streets of Paris before the films even came out. And he is doing well for himself. He has about five films with acclaimed directors lined up.”
While Jake similarly doesn’t want to be compared to the leading men of Twilight, he’s not out to knock them either.
“A lot of people expect us to knock the Twilight cast,” Jake said. “But Taylor Lautner is a really nice kid. Robert Pattinson, I couldn’t imagine the tremendous amount of pressure he was under — and he earned my respect when I saw him fight for certain projects. Water For Elephants is a great novel, the movie is what it was. That’s not his fault. That’s the risk; we’re the face of projects.”
Are you excited to see The Host when it premieres in theaters on Mar. 29, HollywoodLifers?
