The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones teaser trailer was released this evening! Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think!

The trailer gives us some great insight into Jace as he explains to Clary that she isn’t human and she can see things others can’t. Jamie Campbell-Bower certainly looks and sounds like Jace. How did you feel about this brief glimpse into the shadowhunting world? The film is based on the book of the same name by Cassandra Clare.

Sony Pictures has also launched a new website where Madame Dorothea reads your tarot cards! Check out to get your cards read and maybe get a sneak peek at the Mortal Cup. Also a little fun fact: Jamie Campbell Bower is playing the piano music on the site.
