Josh Horowitz: CITY OF BONES teaser trailer ‘shows a lot of stuff’

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones title treatment

One of the concerns a fandom is faced with when it’s anticipating a teaser trailer is exactly how much they’ll be getting.

With the teaser trailer for THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES set to premiere on Thursday (Nov. 15) this has definitely been a concern.

Author Cassandra Clare has shared that the teaser trailer is more than just the title treatment and some music.

Now MTV News’ Josh Horowitz revealed that we’ll be getting a significant amount of footage in the first trailer.


Horowitz got an early look at the teaser trailer, as MTV is debuting it Thursday at 10:30 PM EST, and raved about it.

    Holy cow I’m so excited!! I’m prone to fainting so don’t be surprised if I suddenly drop after it. I want to see that very first scene where jace talks to clary and she’s all freaked cuz he’s just a murderer with a gorgeous face. Oh, like my tmi/TID page on Facebook, He is William Herondale, and she is his only weakness

    • im not prone to fainting, but i am prone to hysterical crying. lets hope i dont make a fool of myself in front of everyone in the crestview movie theater.

    • I’m just super stoked that it’s premiering online so I don’t have to pay 12 bucks to see the nightmare that is Twilight! hahaha..sorry no offense. It’s crazy that this is happening cuz I remember back like 4 years ago when I first picked up TMI: COB while just randomly strolling through the YA section at Barnes and Noble…and now the trailer is about to come out!!!!! SO freaking awesome.

  5. I do not freaking know why, but now I am concern the trailer may show too much. How can this be even posible?…I’d love to see a lot of things (please, some Magnus for charity…) as much as I want to be teased? that’s insane.

    • Im prone to screams of joy so when I see the Magnus in this trailer the neighbor may call the cops cuz they think I may have died………….. OF DANGEROUS LEVELS OF SEXY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! XD

  6. I want this week to go by sooooooo fast. This is incredible news. We are going to get to see a little more than we originally thought! This is pure happiness!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I want to see everyone, especially Jace ❀

  7. I just hope they don’t ruin the end of the movie for people who never even read the book. As they sometimes do in trailers. D:

  8. It’s not a teaser? A full on TRAILER TRAILER?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! THANK YOU GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was a bit bummed that we wouldn’t get to see so much since it was only going to be a teaser. Only less than 1:45 seconds. Now that I know it’s going to be a TRAILER TRAILER, I am BEYOND PSYCHED!!! I can’t wait to see our first real look at the beginning of the COB franchise!!!! I really do hope we might get to see the Greenhouse scene and, of course, at least one MALEC SCENE!!!!! At least for our still wounded and bleeding hearts as a result of the epilogue of CoLS. :””'(

    TWO MORE DAYS AND COUNTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  9. OH YEAH!!!! Now THAT’s what I wanted to hear – that it’s a trailer, NOT just a teaser!!!
    Worried about showing too much? DEFINITELY NOT! NEVER! The more they show, the happier I’ll be. Hell, show the whole movie as far as I’m concerned – I would LOVE it!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  10. It is surreal that this film is already done and a while back we feared this series was never going to be done. Now we are getting a full trailer let me tell you something I was saddened by the end of Twilight I was thinking there was not going to be another franchise to obbess over and then came The Mortal Instruments.

  11. I already saw the trailer a few minuts ago on ET! It went by so fast, I couldnt make out much! I cant find it on the internet! AHH!
