Cassandra Clare is the latest writer of teen fiction to have her work adapted for the big screen as The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones is set for release this summer.
The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones is the first instalment of Clare’s novels and it looks like a new teen franchise is on the verge of being born.
And the movie sees two of cinema’s brightest young stars take on the lead roles as Lily Collins teams up with Jamie Campbell Bower.
Here is the brand new trailer for you to take a look at:
Harald Zwart is in the director’s chair for the film while Lena Headey, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Aidan Turner, Robert Sheehan and Jared Harris are all also on board.
Clary Fray (Collins) thought she was an ordinary teenager living in Brooklyn until one night in a downtown nightclub she encounters the mysterious, charismatic Jace.
Upon witnessing Jace hunt down and kill a demon in the crowded club, Clary begins to wonder if she is that ordinary after all. Especially as she appears to be the only one who can see him…
Jace Wayland (Campbell Bower) is a Shadowhunter. Part of a secret cadre of half-angel warriors, he is tasked with protecting humanity in an ancient battle against demonic forces.
This battle has been fought secretly in our midst for centuries, but the stakes have just been raised.
When Clary’s mother is viciously attacked and taken from their home, she discovers her connections to Jace run deeper than she could ever have imagined and beneath surface of the city exists another world – one she unknowingly belongs to.
As both Clary and best friend Simon (Sheehan) are drawn into this dark and dangerous world, Clary realises Jace is both the key to uncovering her past and protecting her future.
The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones is released 21st August.
