Family and Animation
‘The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones’Release Date: August 23
Who’s in It: Lily Collins, Jamie Campbell Bower, Robert Sheehan, Jonathan Rhys Meyers
What It’s About: Clary Fray, a 15-year-old New Yorker, realizes that she can see supernatural creatures no one else can. When her mother (Lena Headey) is mysteriously kidnapped, she steps into an underground world of Shadowhunters — fierce (and gorgeous) demon slayers, vampires, werewolves, and more.Why We’re Excited: Best-selling young adult books don’t always translate into popular movie franchises, but if anything has an excellent shot of joining the “Hunger Games,” “Twilight,” and “Harry Potter” level of hysteria, it’s Cassandra Clare’s hugely beloved paranormal series. There’s supernatural suspense, pulse-quickening romance, and enough action to satisfy teens and adults alike.
