'Mortal Instruments: City of Bones' International Trailer Gets Mundane
We're not even halfway through the summer, but the later releases of the blockbuster season are pushing hard for audiences to get interested. One such film that seems like it has a bit of an uphill battle for audiences outside of the young adult realm is Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. The film gives Lily Collins (The Blind Side, Priest) the lead role as a seemingly human woman (or Mundane) who learns that she is part of a sect of half-angel warriors, making her able to see between the our world and theirs. There's a lot going on in this international trailer, but this one seems like a bit of a dud. Maybe we'll be surprised?
Here's the international trailer for Harald Zwart's Mortal Instruments: City of Bones from MSN UK:
Harald Zwart (The Karate Kid, Agent Cody Banks) directs Mortal Instruments: City of Bones written by I. Marlene King and Jessica Postigo and based on Cassandra Clare's book of the same name. Lily Collins (The Blind Side, Priest) plays Clary Fray, a young woman who discovers she is the descendant of a secret cadre of half-angel warriors called "Shadowhunters" locked in an ancient battle to protect the world from demons. Robert Sheehan, Kevin Zegers, Aidan Turner, Jemima West, Godfrey Gao and Kevin Zegers also star. Sony's Screen Gems arm will release Mortal Instruments in theaters starting August 23rd this summer. Good?
