Consider the Following

New Trailer for The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones Gives Us a Look at a Very Interesting Cast (Also, Magical Latte Art)

The new The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones trailer gives us a better idea of the plot of a new fantasy flick hitting theaters on August 21. In the film, Lily Collins plays Clary Fray, a young woman who discovers she is a half-angel and helps another “Shadowhunter,” played by Jonathan Rhys Meyers, kill demons.  Among the other cast members are CCH Pounder, Lena Headey as Fray’s mother, and Robert Sheehan as Fray’s friend. So far, I’m assuming the movie involves a mostly invisible Henry VIII killing demons with the help of Snow White and a very confused, be-spectacled version of Nathan from Misfits, but I haven’t read the bestselling series by Cassandra Clare that The Mortal Instruments is based on.
While we don’t get any Lena Headey, Queen of Westeros demon hunter like we did in the first trailer, there’s certainly enough action, fantasy, and intrigue to grab my attention. Plus, after hearing her stance on hollywood whitewashing, I have high hopes for a movie adaptation of the works of Cassandra Clare. Take a look.

The Mortal Instruments Author Takes Stand Against Hollywood Whitewashing

The deeply ingrained issue of whitewashing has been a part of public conversation a lot in the past year–there’ve been the complicated race issues of how people read the characters in The Hunger Games, the polarized audience of HBO’s Girls. It’s always been an issue worth discussing, but it appears to be particularly in the zeitgeist at the moment. Now Cassandra Clare, author of The Mortal Instruments, has jumped into the conversation, and in reference to the big-screen adaptation of her own work.
