It never fails – once you get sucked into another book trilogy, you wait ever-so patiently for it to be turned into the next big film franchise, topping the box offices while reliving our favorite page-turning moments on the big screen. The latest of this trend is the upcoming book-turned-movie Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, starring Lily Collins.
Following New York City teenager Clary Fray (Lily) as she discovers her long family history of Shadowhunters, she joins forces for this half-angel group to rescue her mother from a dangerous demon. The whole plot has “Box Office Gold” written all over it.
