It was already screened at San Diego Comic-Con, but for the benefit of the wider world a new clip from Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones is now online, for the viewing pleasure of all fans of young adult fantasy.
The clip finds heroine Clary Fray (Lily Collins) figuring out why it is that she’s been seeing strange symbols everywhere, which not so coincidentally is around the same time she meets the aloof, demon-battling Shadowhunter Jace Wayland (Jamie Campbell Bowers).
But while the scales are falling from Clary’s eyes – turns out she’s also a Shadowhunter, who will play a pivotal part in the upcoming battle betwixt good and evil – her mother Jocelyn (Lena Headey) is under threat from some very nasty people, including Kevin Durand’s Emil Pangborn. Can Clary figure what has happened? And will she embrace her destiny?
The bigger questions will have to wait for the film itself and its already-in-development sequel, City Of Ashes. Before that can happen, though, City Of Bones lands on August 21.
