The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones

'The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes' is Delayed, May Go Away Entirely

'The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones' came out less than three weeks ago, but box office-wise (at least domestically) it's done. Having made less than $30 million stateside, that number is less than half of the film's production budget. So it's no surprise that production company Constantin Films is delaying the start of the sequel '.'

New 'Mortal Instruments' Trailer: Is This Just 'Twilight' With Demons?

by Jacob Hall June 17, 2013 @ 1:17 PM
The new trailer for 'The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones' is surely going to delight fans of Cassandra Clare's ongoing young adult book series, but what about the rest of us schmucks? From what we can tell, the new movie looks like a combination of 'Twilight,' 'Harry Potter' and 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer,' but without any of the aspects that made those franchises worth talking about (yes, even 'Twilight' had its moments). We clicked play on this trailer knowing nothing and when it ended, we were only baffled.

Two love interests from completely different worlds? Check. A supernatural mystery that's in desperate need of solving? Check. The only question now is whether or not this thing will have the appeal of 'Twilight' or 'The Hunger Games.'
