The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones is the latest young adult fiction that has been adapted for the big screen and hopes to follow in the footsteps of Twilight and The Hunger Games.
The movie an adaptation of Cassandra Clare's best selling novel and sees Harald Zwart back in the director's chair for the first time since The Karate Kid back in 2010.
And we have the first trailer for the movie ahead of the release next summer:
Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower have both enjoyed success over the last couple of years but this could well be the movie that sees their stars rocket as they play the central characters Clary and Jace.
They are joined on the cast list by Lena Headley, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Jared Harris and Aidan Turner.
The movie follows the journey of Clary Fray (Lily Collins), a seemingly ordinary teenager who meets the mysterious Jace Wayland (Jamie Campbell Bower) and discovers that she is in fact a descendent from a long line of Shadowhunters, a secret cadre of half-angel warriors locked in an ancient battle to protect our world from assorted demons; a battle largely unseen by human eyes.
Fans of Twilight The Hunger Games have really got behind the big screen adaptations of the much loved books and if fans of this novel do the same The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones could well be one of the biggest hits of next summer.
The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones is released 23rd August 2012
