Lily Collins stars in the latest Mortal Instruments: City of Bones trailer
Because of the insane success and lackluster production quality of the Twilight films, I feel like every Young Adult film adaptation since then is at a disadvantage. For every success like THE HUNGER GAMES, it feels we get a couple of failures like BEAUTIFUL CREATURES. And all of these films start out with a groan as a young boy or girl discovers a magical world and falls in love with a supernatural guy or girl that will treat them like a king or queen. So THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES might be a good film with a great story, but I think audiences might be too jaded right now to appreciate it. But, check out the newest trailer for the film and see if it floats your boat.
Directed by Harald Zwart, THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES stars: Lily Collins, Lena Headey, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Robert Sheehan, Jamie Campbell Bower, Jared Harris, Kevin Zegers and Kevin Durand. THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES will open in theaters on August 23, 2013.
