Movie Trailer Review: The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones

Many many amazing movies based on Young Adult books have been released in recent years, and hopefully there are many more to come. So I would like to give a brief rundown of what I think about the trailers for some of these movies, and maybe a little about casting and other production elements as well.
So, without further ado….
My review of the trailer for The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones!

While it’s pretty evident that some things have been changed from the books, alot of what we have seen of the movie so far looks quite similar and I doubt there will be any incredibly drastic changes from the story. They have included some funny lines as well which I like, as the humour is one thing that sets these books apart from some other YA novels – we can only hope there are plenty more funny lines in the movie itself and they haven’t used them all up in the trailer. All in all I think it looks like a great action-adventure-romance, exactly what a movie based on City of Bones should be.

Book Reviews: Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

Clare once again delivers with her prequel to the fantastically amazing Mortal Instruments series. This time the location is different but the same magic and powerful writing that made The Mortal Instruments such a success still remains. The fandom couldn’t have asked for a better spin-off. Recommended for ages 14-17. Contains violence, coarse language, mature themes and sexual references.
