Films based on young adult novels have been hit and miss, but as a fan of Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments book series I’m hoping this is one of the better adaptations. Directed by Harald Zwart, this fantasy adventure about supernatural creatures stars Lily Collins, Jamie Campbell Bower, Robert Sheehan, Kevin Zegers, Lena Headey, Kevin Durand, Aidan Turner, Jemima West, and Godfrey Gao.
 
The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones opens in theaters on August 23, 2013.
 
The Plot:
 
Set in contemporary New York City, a seemingly ordinary teenager, Clary Fray (Collins), discovers she is the descendant of a line of Shadowhunters, a secret cadre of young half-angel warriors locked in an ancient battle to protect our world from demons. After the disappearance of her mother (Headey), Clary must join forces with a group of Shadowhunters, who introduce her to a dangerous alternate New York called Downworld, filled with demons, warlocks, vampires, werewolves and other deadly creatures. Based on the worldwide best-selling book series.
