New trailer for The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones

Screen Gems, via MSN, has released a new trailer for director Harald Zwart’s adaptation of the Cassandra Clare young adult novel The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. It’s a little more bland than I’d hoped for.

The film centres on Clary Fray, a teenage girl who discovers that she’s descended from a sect of half-angel warriors who protect the world from demons. As you do…

Lily Collins has the central role, with Jamie Campbell Bower, Jared Harris,  and our own Robert Sheehan and Jonathan Rhys Meyers supporting.

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones is out in Ireland on August 21st.

Set in contemporary New York City, a seemingly ordinary teenager, Clary Fray (Lily Collins), discovers she is the descendant of a line of Shadowhunters, a secret cadre of young half-angel warriors locked in an ancient battle to protect our world from demons. After the disappearance of her mother (Lena Headey), Clary must join forces with a group of Shadowhunters, who introduce her to a dangerous alternate New York called Downworld, filled with demons, warlocks, vampires, werewolves and other deadly creatures. Based on the worldwide best-selling book series.
