The trailer for the long awaited flick The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones has been released! It’s actually here much sooner than expected, which is an awesome little surprise. The film is based on the first book in the worldwide bestselling series by Cassandra Clare and will be in theaters August 23, 2013. Check out the very first trailer and the description of the film below.
“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.”

I can’t wait! To be totally honest, I actually think this movie will be better than the book… which is something I never thought I would say or think before. But I have read the books and was super disappointed by certain aspects of them. The story in the series is fantastic, but the author had trouble portraying the characters, they all felt hallow and unlikable. I think the actors will be able to bring life into the characters in a way the author wasn’t able to (especially with the amazing Jonathan Rhys Meyers playing the villain).
If you haven’t read the books yet and are wondering about their role in the series – it’s a big one. The first book isn’t very werewolf-oriented, however, one of the main characters is a werewolf. It’s not until later in the series that werewolves as a whole have a bigger place in the story. Oh, and don’t worry, there’s no werewolf love triangle, just werewolves kicking ass.
Any fans of the series here? What do you think of the trailer?
