THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES First Trailer
Screen Gems has released the first trailer for the fantasy-action film THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES from director Harald Zwart (THE KARATE KID 2010). The film stars Lily Collins, Jamie Campbell Bower, Robert Sheehan, Kevin Zegers, Lena Headey, Kevin Durand, Aidan Turner, Jemima West, Godfrey Gao, with CCH Pounder, with Jared Harris, and Jonathan Rhys Meyers.
It’s really trying to be the next TWILIGHT, isn’t it. Although CCH Pounder and Jared Harris add a little more weight to what could be the next big series for young adults.
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 by Cassandra Clare, her Mortal Instruments series is compiled of City of Bones, City of Ashes, City of Glass, City of Fallen Angels, City of Lost Souls, and City of Heavenly Fire. The prequels to the Mortal Instruments series are called The Infernal Devices (Clockwork Angel, Clockwork Prince, and Clockwork Princess). The last book of the Infernal Devices, Clockwork Princess, will be released March 19, 2013.
THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES is in theaters August 23, 2013.
