Lily Collins is dragged into the world of Shadowhunters in the first The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones trailer released via MTV.
City of Bones is the upcoming fantasy-adventure film based on the first young adult book in Cassandra Clare’s ‘Mortal Instruments’ series and Collins plays the lead in this film.
Therefore, Screen Gems has also released new one-sheet for Harald Zwart’s adaptation which co-stars Jaime Campbell Bower, Robert Sheehan, Jemima West, Kevin Segers, and Kevin Durand.
The sword fights and flamethrowers within suggest more ass-kicking that Twilight, a movie that draws obvious inspiration.
City of Bones opens August 23rd, 2013.
Watch the trailer and poster below.
When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder—much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It’s hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing—not even a smear of blood—to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?
This is Clary’s first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It’s also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace’s world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know…
