The future's a creepy place in 1st teaser trailer for The Host

The world is an empty, creepy place in the first teaser trailer for Stephenie Meyer's The Host, based on the popular sci-fi novel of the same name.

The first handful of pics from the movie just leaked out, and now the studio is showing off a blue-eyed teaser that sets the scene for the weird sci-fi love story.

A follow-up to Meyer's Twilight saga, The Host hangs up the vampire fangs for a spiritual alien drama about the search for the last humans on Earth.

Most of the teaser consists of a slow, oddly foreboding wraparound shot of a desolate Earth. It only shows off a few seconds of likely footage at the very end—which makes sense, as we're still a long way from the March 29, 2013, opening date.

The best thing about this project? The film is being produced by Andrew Niccol, remembered by most sci-fi fans for his absolutely fantastic 1997 film Gattaca. So, whether you're a Meyer fan or not, that should at least get you a little excited.
