The new trailer for Mortal Instruments: The City of Bones is just days away, and star Lily Collins promises fans “heart pumping action,” “great music” and “high energy” with the latest preview. The film is slated to hit theaters on August 23 with the second trailer and a new poster to be revealed at WonderCon on Saturday, March 30. It will be available online April 1.
“It ends, and you have to watch it again because there’s so much packed into the trailer. The first time I watched it, I asked to watch it three other times just ‘cause it’s so much that happens, it’s like a whirlwind.”
“As well as hopefully pleasing the fans of the series, I think we’re going to invite new people in and make them obsessed with the story as well, I couldn’t be prouder of the project. I’m so excited for people to see it. I really think Harald Zwart, the director did an amazing job of taking what could’ve been a CGI-heavy, action-packed film and really made it about heart and character and emotion. Special effects are just the icing on top.”
“I was a fan before I was cast, so it’s something that I’ve been passionate about before really being involved in. I believe in the producers at Constantin and I know that they have a really good taste level when it comes to the creative side … I just prayed that it wouldn’t come to the time when they were ready to shoot and I was doing something else.”
“As with any potential franchise, you just leave it up to kind of the fans and to see what happens. I signed on because I love Clary and I would want to play her for as long as I can. At the end of the day, you have to kind of step back and remove yourself and go, ‘OK, well we just have to see what happens’ and you go along with the flow. I think all of us would really love to play characters for as long as the fans will have it.”
