From Book to Theater: City of Bones

by 

In Theaters August 23, 2013



The Characters
I have to be honest that at first I was worried about Jamie Campbell Bower playing Jace Wayland but after this trailer, I think he is going to be amazing. I think Lily Collins, fits the roll of Clary Fray pretty good; although, physically I had pictured a more natural redhead with freckles. From what can be seen from the other characters (which unfortunately is not much from this trailer) they seem to have done a pretty decent job in casting the film. I was super stocked to see the shadowhunters even if it was for a split second, particularly Isabelle, she doesn't do much but her personality, in the 5 seconds we do see her, is spot on. And while at first I was like "What Magnus Bane is not Asian!" After seeing a split second view of him, I am like OMG!!! That's Magnus.

Visual Effects
The cinematography looks AMAZING, fluid, and well planned; unlike, the Hunger Games (which I hated). The institute and supernatural beings look real and blend in well with the human world. We didn't get to see much of the vampires, wizards, or demons, there is a longer scene with the werewolves but like the others, it wasn't enough to satisfy my craving! ... I guess I'll have to wait for the movie!

Soundtrack
The soundtrack is scheduled to be released on August 20th 2013. I can't wait to see who will be on the album.

Overall
I am very excited about this movie. I haven't been this excited since the Twilight series was adapted into film but I have a feeling that the Mortal Instruments Series is not going to disappoint. I'm hoping Cassandra Clare had some input on the screenplay and that Jessica Postigo will do a good job bringing the book to the big screen. But if this trailer is any indication this movie is going to be a huge hit and those who haven't had the pleasure of reading the series will soon be rushing to stores!
