  5. Watch A Whole Scene of Lena Headey Battling Demonic Home Invaders With A Frying Pan

    Wait For It...

    I guess there's also some decent exposition in there, but let's be honest, the highlight is the moment when Cersei Lannister finally gets to brandish some weapons. The Mortal Instruments, in which Lena Headey portrays the demon slaying mother of main character Clary, played by Lily Collins, comes out August 21. While you wait for The Mortal Instruments and Game of Thrones, this clip will serve quite nicely to pass the time. Previously in The Mortal Instruments

  6. Sigourney Weaver May Join The Mortal Instruments Franchise

    I'll Allow It

    The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones hasn't even hit theaters yet and a sequel is already in the works from Constantin Film Produktion. While the fantasy adventure movie, starring Lily Collins as a demon killing "Shadowhunter," is set for release on August 21, news has surfaced that Sigourney Weaver is in talks to appear in the next film, as the leader of the Shadowhunters, no less.

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

    Consider the Following

    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.

  10. Watch Cersei Lannister’s Daughter Learn How To Fight Demons In The Mortal Instruments

    Yes. Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes. Yes.

    Even though I haven't read the novels it's based on, I decided I was going to see The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. But with this new trailer I realized Game of Thrones' Lena Headey was starring as an ex-demon hunter so now I'll be there on opening day.
