THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES fought a hard nearly month-long battle that began with 40 movies and has placed second in the 2013 MTV Movie Brawl.
THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES was defeated in the finals by fellow YA book-turned-movie THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE by 100,000 votes. Over 10 million votes were cast.
Congrats to THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE for its MTV Movie Brawl 2013 title. It’s definitely one of my Most Anticipated Movies of 2013–after THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES, of course!
Congrats to Cassandra Clare, Sony Pictures, the cast and crew of THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES and to the passionate fans for a spectacular run in the MTV Movie Brawl.
Executive producer Martin Moszkowicz had this to say:
TMI fandom rules. I am so excited that TMI made it to the finals without a movie being already released.
Clare congratulated fans:
The Hunger Games fandom: Congrats, you are awesome!
TMI/TiD fandom: Congrats as well, you are also awesome! Of course, I love you, and am biased, but I think in this case, bias is okay. It is so fantastic that you guys made it to the final round of the MTV movie brawl; I mean you beat Man of Steel and Iron Man 3 and Stark Trek: Into Darkness, and that is like, amazing. You should be crazy proud for coming in second. I mean, what came in second last year? The Hunger Games.
As MTV says: “The strong showing from the Shadowhunters proved that the YA adaptation is a force to be reckoned with.”
Well, I could have told them you were a force to be reckoned with.
That is, actually, a phenomenal accomplishment, doing that well so early. Pat yourselves on the backs, love one another…
With still seven months left until the film hits theaters it is already generating a ton of buzz and that ill only continue to grow in the coming months.

Well said, MTV, well said.
