'Mortal Instruments: City of Bones' trailer

Posted on

Shadowhunters, your new Mortal Instruments: City of Bones trailer is here! And if you thought the first trailer looked epic, then you’re in for a treat.

Sony’s film, which is adapted from the first book in a a planned series of six novels by Cassandra Clare (five are currently available), stars Lily Collins as Clary, a teenager who discovers that she is descended from a magical line of a Shadowhunters, half-angels with the power to kill demons. YA adaptations have been bombing left and right on the big screen lately (cough, cough, Beautiful Creatures), but so far, so good, City of Bones.

In the new trailer, we get plenty of the golden-haired badass Jace (Jamie Campbell Bower), but we also have our first look at Game of Thrones‘ Lena Headey as Clary’s mother, as well as a bevy of impressive-looking demons. Watch it below:
