If, like me, you were awake in the wee hours of the morning, sifting through movie news, you might have spotted the above video, courtesy of JoBlo/Arrow in the Head. Pre-update, it was said to be a teaser for The Host 2 -- and a particularly awesome teaser at that. Unfortunately, the site has since updated the news piece, and the clip isn't actually a teaser, but rather a French advertisement for an electric company.
It's a bummer that this isn't actually the teaser, because it really zapped right into my huge fangirl love of the film, which had a great balance of comedic, total weirdness, chills, and surprises, all set on a giant killer tadpole. The ad seemed like the perfect way to introduce #2 -- the big creature seemed to have taken a long journey out of city limits, heading for the nice, peaceful countryside.
According to Arrow, the second installment will be a prequel about "a calamity caused when people ignore a monster due to their desire for money." So we'll probably not have a teaser with ominous rippling water moving through a myriad of settings, but one can hope for something equally cool.
