The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones Film Trailer Review
Some of the best and unfortunately worst (ahem! Twi...) Hollywood films are based on literary pieces. It is really not a big surprise that Hollywood has shifted its attention to make films based on fantasy and sci-fi books (novels and comic books). They have been doing it in the past decade so why stop now. They are looking for the next big Hollywood blockbuster ala Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, The Hunger Games, and yes... even Twilight. This time they take another bestselling fantasy title with City of Bones, a book on The Mortal Instruments sci-fi and fantasy series authored by Cassandra Clare.
This time we follow a female protagonist in another magical world amidst everyone's awareness. A seemingly ordinary girl (a pretty cute one if I may emphasize) is eventually pulled into a war that she has no idea with. The story looks a bit predictable, but how to lead to that end is what we as an audience is looking forward for. To whether other books under The Mortal Instruments can be made into a Hollywood film all depends on the performance of this film. Let's just hope that we have another good fantasy film at our hands. Something that will be appreciated by both male and female film fans, and not just teenage girls.
