Action and Superheroes

‘The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones’

Release Date: August 23
Who’s in It: Lily Collins, Jamie Campbell Bower, Lena Headey, Jonathan Rhys-Meyers
What It’s About: When her mom is attacked by a demon and taken from their home, an “ordinary” teenage girl, Clary Fray, finds out truths about her past on her quest to get her back.
Why We’re Excited: This movie has so much hype around it, we can’t even put it into words. Prepare yourself for a “Twilight”-like reaction, folks!

Angelic Power Rune

Family and Animation

‘The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones’

Release Date: August 23
Who’s in It: Lily Collins, Jamie Campbell Bower, Robert Sheehan, Jonathan Rhys Meyers
What It’s About: Clary Fray, a 15-year-old New Yorker, realizes that she can see supernatural creatures no one else can. When her mother (Lena Headey) is mysteriously kidnapped, she steps into an underground world of Shadowhunters — fierce (and gorgeous) demon slayers, vampires, werewolves, and more. 
Why We’re Excited: Best-selling young adult books don’t always translate into popular movie franchises, but if anything has an excellent shot of joining the “Hunger Games,” “Twilight,” and “Harry Potter” level of hysteria, it’s Cassandra Clare’s hugely beloved paranormal series. There’s supernatural suspense, pulse-quickening romance, and enough action to satisfy teens and adults alike.

Moviefone names MORTAL INSTRUMENTS one of most-anticipated book-to-film adaptations

Moviefone has recognized The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones as one of the most-anticipated book-to-movie adaptations hitting the big screen this year.

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones


Written By: Cassandra Clare, whose supernatural-romance books have a massive following that spans tweens to adults.

On the Page: Clary Fray (played by Lily Collins) is a New York City teen with a peculiar power — she can see supernatural beings, like the cocky young demon hunter Jace Wayland (Jamie Campbell Bower) and other strange creatures that appear out of nowhere. When her mother gets kidnapped, Clary discovers she’s not quite the regular city girl she imagined.

On the Screen: Directed by Norwegian filmmaker Harald Zwart (2010’s “The Karate Kid”), the adaptation boasts an attractive young cast (including an actor the author calls the “hottest man in the world,” Godfrey Gao, as sexy warlock Magnus Bane), appeals to a built-in fan base and hits theaters this summer, Aug. 23, 2013.
