An all new Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones trailer has been released! Yay! The film, based on the first book in the bestselling series by Cassandra Clare, comes to theaters August 23. This new trailer gives fans a first look at the werewolves, Simon, Magnus, and Clary’s mom in action! It’s all kinds of awesome! Check it out.
“Set in contemporary New York City, a seemingly ordinary teenager, Clary Fray (Lily Collins), discovers she is the descendant of a line of Shadowhunters, a secret cadre of young half-angel warriors locked in an ancient battle to protect our world from demons. After the disappearance of her mother (Lena Headey), Clary must join forces with a group of Shadowhunters, who introduce her to a dangerous alternate New York called Downworld, filled with demons, warlocks, vampires, werewolves and other deadly creatures. Based on the worldwide best-selling book series.”
Check out the new trailer:
I LOVED the trailer. But it looks like they may be cramming all three books into one movie. Hmmm… not happy about that. But we’ll have to wait and see if that’s the case.
What do you think of the new trailer? Have any of you read the books? I am excited about the movie. While I loved the story in the first three books of the series (the only books that matter in my opinion) I didn’t like how the author portrayed her characters. She rocked the story, but failed when it came to the characters. I think the actors in the film will be able to pull off what Clare couldn’t. So I am geeked about the movie, I think it has the potential to be better than the book (gasp!)
I think City of Bones is the last stand for cinematic urban fantasy and paranormal romance. If it fails, Hollywood will say that these genres are dead. If it succeeds, there might be a new wave of them.
Definitely getting Grimm, Night/Day Watch, Buffy (even the movie), Constantine, and Blade Trinity flashbacks from the trailer.
