A teaser trailer for the prequel to "The Host" has appeared online, featuring "something" underwater as it swims from one place to the next. The film is targeted for a 2009 release.
Update: This is a fake. We were fooled. Thanks to everyone who emailed us to let us know.
"The Host 2" will take place in Cheonggyecheon (or Cheonggye Stream), a creek running through the downtown of Seoul that leads to the Han River. Cheonggyecheon was covered with concrete between the 1950s and 70s to build a road, but restored in 2005. The story is set in 2003 when the restoration was at an early stage. Principal characters, such as street vendors, demolition contractors, and policemen are involved with the disorder and conflict caused by the restoration— one of which is, of course, the monsters from underground.

That's an horrible fake ! It's based on a french commercial for the Chinese Olympics, and it's in theaters for weeks in France. They just cut the cameo of Laure Manaudoux (a swimmer) and had the title "The Host 2" at the end...So lame...
