  7. I can’t watch it from ;( one of many things that makes me regret living in canada…does anyone knows how to open the video in canada?????

  8. AAAAAAND Valentine has brown hair. I’m officially F*cking pissed about that. But everything else looked freaking amazing.

  9. Okay I saw it, SO EXCITED!!!

  11. anyone notice Robert was shirtless in that scene where Jamie said “Have a little faith” OMG

    • haha I think it might be the scene at the Hotel after he changes back from a rat. I think they were surrounded by the vampires, but who knows ๐Ÿ˜›

  12. It’s not available in my country ๐Ÿ˜ฅ I saw a glimpse of it on ET and I’m dying to see the whole thing. Please post a link of where we can watch it when it becomes available! Otherwise I’ll have to wait until this weekend when I go see BD2.

    • I’m in the UK and I’m going to see Breaking Dawn tonight so hopefully I’ll see the trailer then. If not I’ll go to the movie website. Sooooooooooooo excited!

  13. I cannot believe I could watch it, and I am in Latin America! So exciting…my whole body was shaking, is still shaking…I must say that I would have liked to see Magnus but even without that I am fully pleased : )

  14. Ahahaha so apparently Isabelle’s new weapon of choice is a flamethrower. In the scene where Robbie was shirtless, Clary was holding a gun..?0.O
    Can we please the movie now? XD

    • Why? The whip would have been enough/sexy… Also didn’t like the Sleaping Beauty kind of setting for Jocelyn. But otherwise AMAZING. Jace/Jamie is beyond description hot!!!

  16. I was so expecting 30 seconds tops, including the title! that was amazing! I love all the action! This is the best week ever; final twilight, city of bones still, Rachel Caines new book and now this! my head is going to explode!

  17. Jace campbell lightwood (; // November 14, 2012 at 11:07 PM // Reply

    I feel bad for everyone around me cause i am never going to shut up about how amazing and brilliant this trailer is… And simon… And Jace…. And that one line of alec…. Oh by the angel…. *dies* *resurerects in order to watch it again*

  18. O.M.G I must have watched it 5 times already and I’m still freaking out.

  19. Re-blogged at “Talesofthegoddessbloodwolves”.

    I cannot believe how much they have done with the movie that just wrapped up – it already looks EPIC! I love the stele and the way they’re creating runes, I love Jamie (of course, but everyone already knows this!), love everything, everything…I even don’t mind that Valentine’s hair isn’t white as much as I thought I would! I’m just feeling way too much excitement right now and can’t write anymore! ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. HOLLY FRIJOLES!! can somebody get a person who can make time fly to august? before i shoot myself? IT WAS AMAIZING!!! i already watched it like 7 times!!! i got mad at first cuz i couldnt find it and then vuala! it was there and mine to appreciate:D so yeah, ive watched it already 7 times and i will keep on doing so till we get the second one:] and even after that i will keep on watching it:D hopefully Magnus is in the second one:) i wonder when we’ll get it? but too soon to know right? this trailer just made my week and i will make sure to give thanks when im eating my turkey next week:D
    love you all:)!!

  22. So cool. Just saw the trailer. Love it. Cant wait for the movie to come out!

  23. I consider this an early birthday present for me:)) I am so happy with the trailer! The movie looks incredible!! The only down side is now I’m sure I’ll die of excitement before I see the actual movie.

  24. Luv the trailer!! but i can’t watch the commentary, it doesn’t work in Canada:(
    I love how they made the silent bothers.

  25. Dear Lord… SO. MANY. FEELS.

  26. I totally get the flamethrower, as vamps are super sensitive to burning. I loved seeing Izzy with it, and now I can’t wait to see her with the whip.

  27. My fangirling has reached and all time high! I can’t freaking wait! It looks amazing and can I just say…..Jace and Simon…schwing ๐Ÿ˜‰

  28. That was such an epic trailer. I am in awe of everyone working on that movie that they were able to put together a trailer of that much action and special effects already!! I am with some of the others…bit bummed there was no Magnus but shirtless Jace throwing on a rune there made up for that one ๐Ÿ˜‰

  29. I go into a seizure of pure excitement every time i watch…Lily is THE best Clary imaginable.

  30. This is so effing EPIC!!!!! I don’t think i’ll be able to stop watching this… well until the next trailer comes. ๐Ÿ˜€

  31. I cried from watching the trailer because it was that AWESOMELY AMAZING!!!

  32. Am I the only one who is a little upset that Valentine has a weird braid-mullet haircut? ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    • Thank you! I’m so angry about that lol. His hair isn’t even white…which is his most defining characteristic…I’m so pissed. But the rest of the trailer was awesome

    • I just saw on tumblr Valentine being compared to Anakin Skywalker, hahaha I totally agree, braids an all. I could have lived with the brown hair but those braids and clothes ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

      • I know right? Its verging on Jack Sparrow a little bit… But whatever, I’m so high on CoB feels that I hardly care…

    • Maybe it’s his Wayland disguise and in the next movies he’ll have short white hair? ๐Ÿ˜€

      • I like your optimism! Lol. I’m getting way too worked up about his hair. (even though it is a pretty crucial characteristic for Valentine).

      • thank you, i said the same thing, we don’t even know the whole plot of the movie yet and people are complaining
        Izzy DOES have the whip in her hand but people only see the flamethrower and they haven’t even put in the CGI either but people keep complaining :/

  33. This looks amazing and all and I love the books sooooo much. But what is with the flame thrower??? I am pretty sure that a flame thrower would not be a shadowhunter’s weapon of choice, considering the Iron Sisters don’t make flamethrowers…I hope that this is only a slip up and isn’t the start of a movie series that strays entirely too far from the books and their brilliant story line.

    Also, the poltergeist type demon seems a bit cliche, thats just in my opinion. Where are the shax demons, iblis demons, hydra demons and other demons a like.

    I guess I just love the book series so much that my expectations are extremely high. This is only a minute or so of footage, so who can really make judgments at this current time?

    All that aside though, it looks amazing and I am sooo excited for the film’s release.

    • I totally agree with u I luv the books n I too have high expectations but the trailer was ok cant wait to watch it ๐Ÿ™‚

  34. OMG it looks fantastic. I knew they would make all the shadowhunters go into Hotel Dumort! I love the books so much, now if u excuse me I’m going to go do fangirl laps around the house screaming!!!!!

  35. Can I please get some other people’s opinions on Valentine? He looks like a freaking tribal warrior as opposed to a sleek, threatening shadowhunter…and did anyone else notice his hair is brown…and he has a freaking ponytail.

    • Too Many emotions To even care. Maybe next week I’ll be bummed, but until then I am gonna be in a coma state of excitement!!!!!

    • I agree, that’s a really shame. He was, with Sebastian Morgenstern, my favourite character in the book. I feel betrayed…

    • I think Valentine is so much scarier in the book, where Cassandra has described him as a sleek but ice cold and dangerous gentleman. I don’t have an issue with his hair color, but I don’t like this shabby warrior type. Also have to say I don’t like Isabelle with the flame thrower. What’s wrong with the good old electrum whip?

      • Isabelle does have a whip in the trailer, if you pause, you can briefly see it in the Hotel Dumort sequence. The flamethrower is a bit odd. But yeah he doesn’t feel at all like the Valentine from the books. I’m just really curious as to why they would change him so drastically. Not to mention Jonathan Rhys Meyers looks way too young to be Jace’s dad in the movie.

  36. I just can’t take the wait any longer. I’M SO EXCITED.
    Loving Jamie as Jace. The backflip was awesome, his accent was sexy and his creeping past the coffee shop kind of made me laugh, even if it wasn’t supposed to. ๐Ÿ™‚
    And no matter what anyone says, I loved the flame blasting gun thing. It was truly awesome. Jemima as Isabelle is great. A true badass, she is.

  37. Everyone complaining about the demons and lack of CGI effects, Cassandra Clare revealed in the commentary version of the trailer that this was made literally 2 days after the finished filming. They haven’t done the CGI effects. At all. All of what we see in the trailer was what they did right then and there doing filming. Including Jamie’s flip scene. Which she said she was thinking while seeing it, “What possessed him to do something like THAT?” lol

    But…LOVE IT!!! Jace and Clary’s little scenes made me day! Love how we got a preview of Jace talking about Clary with Alec. Especially with Alec asking, “What is it about her?” and Jace saying, “She’s different.” I think this will REALLY show us a more in depth view of Jace’s feelings for Clary from his POV which we never got in the novels except from CC’s bonus content. Which I am SOOO excited about! Wish we could have seen a quick glimpse at the Greenhouse scene though. Unless that requires CGI for the flower’s blossoming all at once part of the scene.

    And….NO MAGNUS?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! WHAT?!?!?!?!?!

    Was SERIOUSLY hoping to have a scene involving freaking MAGNUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *Sighs* Oh well…but we sure better have a scene having him in it in the NEXT trailer or movie sneak peek or something! I NEED my Magnus or, better yet…a MALEC scene!!!

  38. Reblogged this on Writing Haven and commented:
    “Welcome to the City of Bones.” Now that’s a perfect pick line for guys.

    omg omg Stop it. I thought I was ready to watch this, but I wasn’t. I just died. It killed me. I’m too excited; it is perfection. I love the seraph blade and the way it glows/makes that noise, just how I pictured! Jace, Alec, and Simon in the same minute and a half is an overdose of hotness. Clary is truly perfect, and Isabelle’s flame thrower was a genius addition, she looks so gordeous/deadly. Hodge is SO Hodge. And ah crap, Valentine is highly attractive.

  40. OMG Loved the trailer, loved the cast especially Jace. I knew from the very beginning that Jamie would be the BEST Jace EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’ve been re-reading and re-reading the books. Now I will keep re-watching this trailer. That will have to keep me happy until next August.

  41. Anna Herondale // November 15, 2012 at 2:33 AM // Reply

    Plus omg the way Jace kicks in the police car door I was like oh Jace you’re too hot! lol. And I’ve been excited to see Magnus but thank the Angel that they left him out of this one because I seriously would have overloaded and died for real.

  42. Finally!! That is awesome. I love it <333

  43. Nooooo Where are Valentine silver white hair ?????
    That means that Sebastian Morgenstern will have brown hair too ???
    It’s a shame, their hair color was kind of a distinction to recognize a Morgenstern….
    I’m so pissed right now ! Why didn’t they dye his hair ? ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    • I guess they didn’t think blond hair looked good on the actor?

      I don’t really mind that much, to be honest ๐Ÿ™‚ I also pictures Clary as having really red hair, and her hair here is almost blackish. But I’m over that, so I’m sure I’ll get over Valentine’s hair. ๐Ÿ™‚

      The movie still looks awesome ๐Ÿ˜€

    • I’m right there with ya. I’m so pissed. But I guess I better get used to it now cuz it’s not gonna change between now and next August ๐Ÿ˜ฆ such a shame…I was really looking forward to seeing a white-haired Valentine in his sleek suit…like he’s described. Not a tribal indian chief with dreadlocks like we got in the trailer. UGH!

    • I think it`s the actor. Granted, one of these photos is dated, and the other has scary eyes, but take away that and I still think he’s creepier with the dark hair. Not really pulling of blond well IMO.

  44. GAHHHH!! CANNOT.CONTAIN.EMOTIONS. Why does August have to be so far away?
    Lilyis awesome. Jamie is ohmyhotness, Jemima is badass, Kevin is Alec and Robert is so freaking adorable as Simon. *sniffles*
    I’m so proud.
    This just made my year.

  45. TMI Source I love you.. I really believed I wasn’t going to get to see this ๐Ÿ˜€ it looks amazing, seems to deviate from the book a lot, especially about the map in her head, what’s that all about?? but still it looks amazing

  46. I want to scream in intense excitement because of my history with this series, but I know how teaser trailers are formatted. Here’s my response: dull, reminds me of The Series of Unfortunate Events, Lily Collins’s scream sounds like Jennifer Lawrence’s Hunger Game wail (very believable), and I know where that graffiti wall is from in Toronto. I’m more or less scared, because, it just looks like an Urban Fantasy novel gone movie failure. I think what made The Hunger Games and Harry Potter more successful as adaptations were their genres. Hunger Games is more Sci-Fi rather than Urban fantasy and Harry Potter is more strict fantasy than anything else. So far, every actual Urban Fantasy adaptation has been pretty much a joke and failure once the entire film was screened to the audience.

    You might say I’m criticising too quickly – I’m just more or less stating the fact that other fans will not. Right now, other fans are probably pissing their pants. I’m bloody EXCITED and want to start on my Shadowhunter cosplay right now. But, even still, I know how these type of films work and I’m going to continue to criticize it until I’m proven otherwise.

    Simon…ugh, the acting is looking IFFY. Ergggh. And, HAHA, if you take a good look at the battle sequence at the end…No, Clary’s face, just, no. No. -face palm- This is all acting unfortunately, since, the dialogue is clearly not awful at all.

    • um ure like the weirdest person in this planet. i can’t find a single emotion behind ur words. do you like the books?

      • Yes Tia you are ridiculous. Lighten up get a grip. Your fingers must hurt typing all those words. Phew. Calm down. Again lighten up. You are really not stating the facts that the other fans will not you are just dribbling on and on and on. Nothing is perfect thank goodness.Not even you,

    • actually this movie is more action/horror/fantasy and there will be no evidence that this movie will screw up until the whole is shown in theaters. until then, there is no need for foreshadowing. these series have a huge fanbase and hopefully the movie will be satisfying. it’s pretty epic from the trailer

    • I totally agree with you. This movie looks like it’s going to suck already. Not excited anymore!

  47. Oh, I also really like the colour toning of this film. It’s a pinkish, purple and blue hue (which is generally not used in film), but looks really pretty…it’s different.

  48. it’s clar-eeeee. not claire

  49. OMG!!!! finally!!! awesome trailer! but now i want more ๐Ÿ˜€

  50. Cecilyherondale // November 15, 2012 at 6:52 AM // Reply

    Crying. Of happiness..

  51. I grew up during The Heavy Metal era of 1987 and this movie is Heavy Metal fantasy come to life. I never thought seeing someone kicking a cop’s door would be such a turn on.

    Don’t kill me but I prefer a dark haired Valentine it does not change the fact he is still an evil man.


  53. omg so epic and I think the flamethrower’s cool! i imagine once they finish the editing, it’ll e even more epic!

  54. I’m a bit sad that jace’s eyes are blue (or am i wrong?) but maybe they’ll change this…. anyway looks really good!

  55. teamedwardjace // November 15, 2012 at 8:26 AM // Reply

    i watched it th3 2nd time and will watch m ore later! fuckin epic! everyone is perfect and jace’s eyes are blue but h’es hot with blue and gold eyes(and perhaps they’ll use cgi to change his eye colour) but everyone is great!

  56. I woke up at the morning and watched it , and then watched it angain and again and again like seven times. I cant believe this is happening!!!!! There are some thing i dont understand like, whos the girl. Floating in the air like dead?? I dont know. And in the dumort scene its supposed that jace and clary went there alone, buet there were alec and isabelle too so… I loved it anyway

  57. It was so beautiful. And amazing. And incredible. And fantastic. And I love Lily Collins now. Her scream was etched into my mind! She did a fantastic job and I am so proud of her. And the way Jamie Campbell Bower looked at her during the scenes – it was perfect. Beyond perfect actually. And their accents! Unf. Perfect. Jemima West’s outfit – perfect. Robert Sheehan being ao lost and confused – perfect. They picked a perfect cast imo. Amazing. Can’t WAIT for August 23rd, 2013!

  58. Everything about this movie is …….PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG how am I gonna last until next August????? It’s gonna be one long winter here. But between re-reading the books and re-watching this awesome trailer, that will have to satisfy me! There are no words to describe how perfect Jamie is!!!! โค

  59. oh i love it! it looks soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo amazing!

  60. oh my jesus mary mother of christ
    im shaking
    i cant stop
    ive never been so excited in my life
    that trailer was perfection
    ahhh i cant stop screaming!
    this is toooooo much

  61. OMG OMG OMG! I CRYING !! <3333

  62. I FREAKING LOVE IT!!!!!!!! I seen like 10 times!!!! โค Ahhhhh!

  63. Hmm, it looks like they’re gonna make Clary afraid of Jace. It also looks like they’re fighting monsters instead of demons, but whatever. I can’t wait to see this movie! I love how they made it all action-y!

  64. a little disappointed to be honest. Flamethrower? Pirate Valentine (i hope its a flashback from his youth or something…maybe? to make silver-hair-V a little bit more shocking?) I don’t like Jamie…at least bookJace would not hide is lushious golden locks under a hood :D:D
    My hopes are on sassy-Alec ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Yeah Valentine looks like some sort of tribal indian chief. Borderline Jack Sparrow. So not happy about that. I was thinking it was maybe a flashback too, but there are short clips in the trailer of him fighting Jace and he has the same hair. UGGHHH. Everything about the trailer was perfect and then they had to screw up Valentine’s character completely. Plus he looks like he’s about 5 years older than Jace. Which is not cool at all.

  65. Not bad, but hopefully the Valentine who we saw was just him in his Wayland getup. And in the next movies he’ll have white hair? ๐Ÿ˜€ God, I hope so.

  66. i love the scene when clary was like, theres to many of them. and jace is like, have a little faith. . . i dont know about you but that is a glimpse of jaces sacasticness.
    and did you see jace fighting valentine?!

    • I fully agree with you, I think Jamie (considering the lines we saw in this trailer) has got Jace sense of humor right. I love when he says “Welcome to the City of Bones”…so…so…lovely.

    • Another mistake spotted! Where is izzy’s Ruby red pendant???? Or am I the only one who remembered that. -_-

      • Anna Herondale // November 17, 2012 at 2:17 AM //

        Its there in the scene where Jace stabs and Lily screams, Isabelle is in her white dress and has that pendant on…my god this is proof I’ve watched the trailer a billion times lol.

  67. Just. Fucking. Awesome. Better even than I hoped.
    I am so excited for this.

  68. Clary is one lucky bitch did you checked out a shirtless Jace.

  69. Awesome trailer, August seems even further away. ): But did they really think it was necessary to put little plaits in Valentine’s hair?? O_o

  70. My theory: Magnus was not in the trailer because he was too busy prepping the suit, the white hair dye, and the barber’s scissors in order to give Valentine a make-over!
    Thank you Magnus! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • No that I think about I Magnus may not have been in this trailer be us they were worried that the increadible amount of sexy already in it was already to much for people may they are kinda of warming us up to those dangerously high levels of sexy so we don’t die before august.

      • Anna Herondale // November 17, 2012 at 2:20 AM //

        I’m telling you that must be it! We have to work up a sort of tolerance to this level of hotness before they introduce Magnus. lol.

  71. nevertrustaduck // November 15, 2012 at 4:31 PM // Reply

    That. Was. Amazing. I love the “Welcome to the City of Bones” line at the end. That was the best way to end it. I can’t wait!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I have honestly been worried if the movie would turn out to be good or not, considering so many book adaptations have been horrible, an example being the Eragon movie, but this has seriously reassured me! Dying waiting! ๐Ÿ˜€

  72. NOTE: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn part 2 was released in Australia the 15th of August, and Australian fans should note that the City of Bones trailer is not screening before the movie. :/

  73. Folks Valentine rebelled against an establishment I prefer this look than that of a Wall Street tycon.

    • Yeah, I can get used to the hair color I guess…but he also looks way too young to be Jace’s dad, don’t you think?

  74. KikiLOVESJAce // November 15, 2012 at 6:03 PM // Reply

    By the angel! I’m so excited! ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ve thought it would be a little bad since they’ve decided to cut a few things from the movie, like Isabelle’s weapon, and valentine’s hair colour choice. But no, I LOVE IT! CAN”T WAIT TO SEE MORE! ๐Ÿ™‚

  75. I just have one question Jace obviously has an accent but I thought the Lightwoods were going to have an accent to based on that interview with Lily because to me it didn’t sound like they had accent, but I don’t care either way, I was just wondering.

    • No, I think your right. I didnt hear Alecs accent cause he only spoke one line ‘shes going to get us all killed’. But Alec moved to New York when he was a toddler and Issy was born in New York, so their accents would have diluted by now. Jace lived in Idris till he was ten, eleven? I cant recall. But his accent would remain.

      Whether it’s English or Austrian or whatever, it was PERFECT! God, Jamie as Jace knocked me out! He was controlled, wary, and definitely confident. He nailed Jace! I especially loved the part where Clary sees Hace at the coffee shop abd she hides behind Simon, her eyes teary and afraid. we like to think of Clary as a strong girl but she’s afraid she’s going crazy and seeing mysterious murderers. lily equally impressed me. God, the whole cast was perfect. They seem to understand their character. Cant wait to see Simons humor in action.

      No magnus, but thats okay. Im sure they’re waiting to reveal his image soon!

  76. I just… I just really wanted Valentine to have blonde-white hair. And Clary’s hair to be curly. Ah =/


  77. OMG the trailer was amazing!!!!! I’m so happy that everyone is finally realizing how great Jamie is as Jace ๐Ÿ™‚
    I seriously don’t know if I can wait until August!! Oh well I guess I’ll just watch the trailer 38572403 more times…

  78. Did anyone else see the silent brother… O.O

  79. My friend, who was a die hard Alex P for Jace fan, told me that Jamie IS Jace after seeing the trailer. *clap clap clap*

    Re: Valentine’s Hair

    I agree with Nancee when said that it could be his Wayland disguise. I mean, Waylands don’t have silver hair right? Sebastian also dyed his hair in City of glass. Fellow shadowhunters, dont get caught up with tiny details from a teaser trailer and just enjoy how awesome everything is. I just hope we’ll get a Malec scene in the next one.

  80. The trailer is beautiful! It’s amazingly perfect! By the angel I can’t wait for August 23, 2013 โค

  81. people, its a small trailer for a movie that is at least 9 months away, the director said that the next trailer will have more but they barelly wrapped up filming like days ago so we should count ourselves lucky to even get this peek. Yeah the whole Valentine thing is bothersome but hell they change tons of things all the time. In the vampire Diaries Elene was a blond but i like the show either way.
    Plus If Cassandra Clare: the author of the series is ok with what they changed then really it shouldnt be a problem. the movie will be great eithe way, i still will go see it 10 times till i get the DVD

    • TV shows never stay true to the books example True Blood. Like I pointed out Valentine rebelled against The Clave an establishement dressing him like a Wall Street Corporate tycoon does not scream rebel, this does.

      • I disagree with you Adriana. I too would have prefered to see Valentine protrayed as the sleek well dressed man he was in the book. Here’s a CoA quote direct from the man himself:
        “Demons, to you, are hideous creatures that leap out from the shadows to rend and attack. And there are such creatures. But there are also demons of deep subtlety and secrecy, demons who walk among humans unrecognized and unhindered. Yet I have seen them do such dreadful things that their more bestial colleagues seem gentle in comparison. There was a demon in London that I once knew, who posed as a very powerful financier. He was never alone, so it was difficult for me to get close enough to kill him, though I knew what he was. He would have his servants bring him animals and young childrenโ€”anything that was small and helplessโ€””
        Chilling, isn’t it? That’s how I always pictured Valentine. Evil but not obviously so. An evil full of subtlety and secrecy, a well dressed sophisticated man, who is all the more evil for his well-to-do appearance.

  82. Ahhhhhh by the angels this is awesomeeeeeeeee! omg I can’t wait!!!

  83. movies stay as true to the book as TV shows do. but they always chnage things up, and besides, its barelly a change to notice.
    Yeah i wanted Valentines hair white, so i can see the resemblence of future Sebastian,
    but from my from them changing details in my favorite books turned movies like Carrie, Speak, Running with Scissors, Series of unforunate Events,Flowers in th Attic and Blood and Chocolate, i dont judge details they change, as long as the actors match their Characters personalty i will get over it.
    as long as they show VAlentine being evil
    Jace and Magnus sarcastic
    Alec is a mean closeted gay guy
    and Clary and Jace have their amazing romance I am good


  85. Perfect! Jamie’s perfect as Jace! Great casting. Fantastic song! The song is by John Murphy move soundtrack for Sunshine. The song is under the same name or The surface of the song. There is also a single remastered version of this song of his on iTunes along with the entire Sunshine soundtrack! For those with powers with the Director…. Will you please include the various trailer music in the soundtracks and scores? You are on the right track!

  86. OMG!!!!! I can’t wait now! Didn’t think I could get that excited?

  87. DUUUUDE! I wonder how long the movie is gonna be! Hopefully well over 2 hours like Harry Potter and The Hunger Games…There’s a whoooole lotta story to tell in this first movie!!!

  88. ‘m sooo upset he doesn’t have Silver white hair, as one of my favourite characters, and sebastian being the first, It’s shame if they don’t respect their common characteristic feature : Silver white hair…

    That being said, jonathan Rhys Meyer is truly an amazing actor, and even if he doesn’t LOOKS like our Valentine, I’m sure he has perfectly capture Valentine’s state of mind and way of being. ๐Ÿ™‚

    But god if they make a Brown hair sebastian in the third movie, I will come to the movie set and DYE every single person hair white !!! D:<

  89. wow, the trailer is awesome! It really gave an insight into the film! Can’t wait to watch it next year ๐Ÿ™‚

  90. This is not the Original trailer, but it’s fan made with the scenes of the trailer and epic music ๐Ÿ˜€

  91. Those who are complaing about Valentine’s hair color? Elena Gilbert of the Vampire Diaries is a blonde in the books, Lafattyate from True Blood dies in the first book and he is alive on the show.

    • That’s exactly what we said : It’s upsetting at first, but since they are great actor, it will be just a detail. And Vampire diaries is not a good example, the serie has very few things in common with the books.

      However I don’t mind when the story changes a little, but when a character doesn’t have the features that make him special, we have every right to be upset ๐Ÿ™‚
      Just think about how you would have react if they’ve made a Black haired Jace, or even a Blond haired isabelle ๐Ÿ™‚

  92. Holy Steles! By the Angel! I can’t belive it! This is so epic!!!!!!! Hey quit teasing us…><!
    Hea…got you. Thanks for an awesome trailer! Love it! Especiallly the part when Jace and Alec talk about her. Quote: "What is it about her?"
    "She's different."
    "She is going to get us all killed."
    Love this part! Goodjob cast and everyone!

  93. Ok so I finally got to watch it (Didnt show it during Breaking Dawn and I was totally gutted! Thank the Gods for Youtube!) and I’ve watched it about ten times in a row. Clarys non-red hair still bugs me. I’m a redhead and thought that finally we were getting a kickass red-haired heroine, but no. However, Jamie as Jace….OMFG the stare, the leather, the way he kicks the crap out of demons and handles that seraph blade, that intense stare….all of those make me want to do things to him that I can’t describe here because they are just so naughty! Sorry but Alec Pettyfur would have looked far too ken doll, whereas Jamie is real, and tough, and angsty and sexy as hell! Go Jamie! I freaking love this trailer, it is totally epic. Just one thing….it’s not a complaint butis it just me, or have they changed parts of the book? Like added in stuff? It’s a while since I’ve read it so I could be wrong…

  94. 2 movies away. But I can’t wait to see who is gonna play Sebatian/Jonathan. And Aline

  95. I was one of the ones who was unsure about the casting of Jamie as Jace. I’m sad to say I questioned his hotness. And then when set pictures started coming out I still wasn’t convinced. You know what I think it was?

    I think he doesn’t photograph well. People might argue this, I’m sure many will (he has modeled after all). But for me at least, and maybe many like me, I think that was the problem.

    When I see him in motion it’s a totally different story. I am very excited for this movie. Not to see it exactly (I’ve read the series, I have vivid mental pictures, I’m eagerly awaiting the last installment), I am excited for others to see it. I’m excited to see this movie be insanely popular and to hear not just my book-reading friends but also my movie-going friends discussing it.

    tldr; Happy to see Jamie doing a great job. And generally excited.

    • Agree !!!! When I first heard that he was Jace I was worried he wouldn’t portray him as in the books but now i am totally covinced. He looks amazing as Jace ๐Ÿ™‚

  96. HOLD THE PRESSES: I don’t think Simon will be turning into a rat in the movie. I predict he’ll end up at the DuMort through some other means. Check out 1:12 (guy in cage, you’ll also see some people coming up from under the stairs on the right if you look closely for the green light) and then check out 1:25 shirtless Simon at the Dumort. Looks like the same guy, no?

    This isn’t hard evidence that Simon isn’t going to be a rat, maybe they realized what he was a stuffed him in that cage. But I really do think that’s Robert/Simon in both shots.

    Thoughts? Speculation?

  97. And who’s that Simon tackles at 1:30?

  98. Very disappointed!!! I just saw Breaking Dawn Part 2 and there is NO City of Bones teaser trailer in Canada, at least not here in Quebec…….So sad ๐Ÿ˜ฆ At least I got to see Jamie as Caius ๐Ÿ™‚
    Anyone else in Canada see BDP2? Did you get to see the COB teaser trailer? Thank goodness I saved the trailer on my comp so I can watch it every day!!!

  99. I just love this trailer!!!!! Jamie you are totally awesome, amazing, fantastic, fabulous,……there are not enough words to describe how wonderful and hot you are!!!!!
    The PERFECT Jace is the PERFECT Jamie โค


  101. OMG I am mindblown. I sent it to practically everyone I know with the caption “Watch and try not to rush to the nearest bookstore” or something like that.

    A tip for those who live in Canada, like me : if you couldn’t watch it on, try going on imbd to watch the trailer. Well, that’s what I did, and it worked. ๐Ÿ™‚

  102. I think the black-haired Valentine in this teaser trailer will be touched-up later when they add in the CGI effects and etc…

  103. Loving Godfrey’s accent when he says “there’s a map inside your head Clary”…

  104. I fell completely in love with this trailer….i love how when clary screams at the party and jace looks at her like a new beautiful creature. and i ABSOLUTELY LOVE and ADORE how jace says you’re a mundane, GOD!! so dreamy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I FELL IN LOVE WITH HIM AT THAT MOMENT! who agrees?

  105. I’ve always been in love with him. โค Loved him in Camelot too. But I think Jace is going to be his ultimate best performance. He has Jace's character and personality dead on. He always gets so into his characters. He is simply perfection.

  106. That is the best teaser trailer I’ve ever seen!

    It’s funny because I dont imagine Alec as buff as Kevin. Do you guys? I always imagined him with Jamie’s physique; slighter but strong.

  107. So just finished watching the trailer over and over as i do everyday haha i relised that in the Vampire Hotel scene that it’s Isabelle who says “there’s to many of them” She sounds amazing !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! well at least i think it is cause it sounds british? I am so in love with this movie already bring on August 23 2013!!!!!!!!

  108. I can’t wait!!!โ™ฅโ™ฅโ™ฅ

  109. It works very surely. I think I also have it about three evenings. The reception is wonderful. I even get some cable channels that i’m not supposed to but I believe that has more details on the area I have a home in than the actual splitter. Overall, very good and cheap.

  110. Upcoming, release the trial and error Pay per click campaign. Keep it smaller than average and workable, ample so that you can measure what on earth is included and what you will be able to handle. Ultimately, talk about the options with many diverse PPC operations corporations. DaimlerChrysler Canada realized there seemed to be the need for a new countrywide baby protection fit evaluation service to get motorists and thus formulated the Fit for any Kidยฎ application. These cost-free home inspections are generally open to virtually all Canadians whatever the generate or even label of his or her car. Now mother and father might get tips and also assist for the correct installation of baby protection seating in contributing Upscale Chrysler, Dodge or even Jeepยฎ suppliers..
