While this isn’t our typical thing here at HorrorNewsNetwork, we did happen to catch the WonderCon panel for the latest movie based on a young adult book series, “Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.” The pretty, young actors were very popular with the young women (and young girls) in the crowd. The author, Cassandra Clare, was also in attendance and was witty and clearly a fan of the subject material. She was also very involved in casting, set design, etc. which should bring more authenticity to the movie. The premiere of the trailer was a hit. I will say that it looks better than “Twilight.” More violent. Yay.
WonderCon Synopsis: 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 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. Please join the book’s author, Cassandra Clare, along with director Harald Zwart and stars Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower for an exclusive preview and discussion of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.
