THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES, set to hit theaters in August 2013, has its first rival film premiering on the same August 23, 2013 release date in Lionsgates’ horror film YOU’RE NEXT.
Here is a brief synopsis of YOU’RE NEXT, which was screened at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival, from Lionsgate Publicity:
In YOU’RE NEXT, during a family reunion getaway, the Davison family comes under a sadistic attack. When Crispian Davison (Bowen) brings his new girlfriend (Vinson) along to celebrate the wedding anniversary of his parents (Moran and Crampton), the family’s evening together is shattered when a gang of mysterious killers begin to hunt the family down with brutal precision. Unfortunately for the killers however, one of the victims harbors a secret talent for fighting back.
In the coming months more films will surely occupy the same August 23, 2013 release slot going head-to-head against THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES.
