Trailer For ‘Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones’ Skirts The Horror Line

Well, Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, certainly looks like a more horror-centric take on the post Harry Potter YA studio movie. The new trailer from MTV actually looks alright to me, not necessarily my thing but I’d probably be fine with seeing it.

Directed by Harald Zwart for Sony Screen Gems, “When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder—much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It’s hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing—not even a smear of blood—to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy? This is Clary’s first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It’s also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace’s world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know…

In theaters August 23, 2013, Lily Collins, Jamie Campbell Bower, Kevin Durand, Robert Maillet, Lena Headey, Jared Harris, Godfrey Gao, Kevin Zegers and Jonathan Rhys Meyers also star.

    Buffy 2012 with a piece of CGI and a bit of Twillight-Love…

    The books are actually good and when I saw the trailer I just thought yes they are focusing what the books focus on demon hunting, vampires, werewolves, warlocks and less on clary and jace’s romance aspect. The trailer looks very action’y like the books and could just as well do the books justice. 🙂 Very much unlike Twilight

  • Evil_Flip

    wow, this looks terribly generic.

  • jarredeberhardt

    Absolute garbage… basically stealing the idea of Night Watch plus having the score from Sunshine playing the background just shows how much they had to borrow conceptually to get this movie made.
