Lily Collins talks new movie trailer

On March 30 a new City of Bones movie trailer and new poster will be revealed at WonderCon and on April 1, the trailer will be released online. Star of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, Lily Collins (Clary Fray) told The Hollywood Reporter that fans can expect "heart pumping action,” “great music” and “high energy" from the new trailer.

When asked about the trailer Collins said, “It ends, and you have to watch it again because there’s so much packed into the trailer.” She continued to say,
“The first time I watched it, I asked to watch it three other times just ‘cause it’s so much that happens, it’s like a whirlwind.”

Head to The Hollywood Reporter for a look at the entire interview.

Robert Sheehan Discusses "City of Bones" in a Radio Interview

Interviewer: There is a weird kind of shadowy vampire element to it. Is it going to be the new Twilight or do you not like those types of comparisons?
Robert: It definitely runs along the same ilk; there are similar aspects to the story. It's very much like an old fashion kind of story book. The director, a very lovely man name Harald Zwart, he shot this film. He shot the film on 16 mm which for a film maker it gives it an old quality. I think he was trying to make a old story book type film. There is similarities to Twilight but has much more of a magical feel.

Interview: I heard you compared to Indiana Jones, it's kind of adveture-y, right?
Robert: Ya, when I first read the script that was one of the things that struck me most. There's a wonderfully tendential nature to the adventure they have. They go off to do one thing and then they get pulled and dragged from one thing to the next. They get distracted, very much like Indiana did, back in the day.

Interviewer: But it has that half human element to it doesn't it?
Robert: Ya, basically the character, she turns 18 at the beginning of the film, she believes she's gone crazy because she discovers her own magical ability she then discover this ancient institute of demon hunters. The demon hunters part humans part devine, there whole thing is to fight against the ever growing population of demon population. She releases that she has what you call Shadowhunter blood. My character is her BFF, who loves her secretly, and gets dragged along for the ride. He won't leave her side because he's very protective of her.

Day 5 of 'The Cassie Diaries' on set of THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES!

TEEN just revealed the fifth day of Cassandra Clare's diary on set of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. Check out what Cassie did that day below:

Today marks the final set diary from Cassandra Clare‘s visit to The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. And let us tell you, it’s AH-maze. One, because we get to see Cassie’s costume. (That’s right; she’s IN the film.) Two, Robert Sheehan and Godfrey Gao are back again. Three, Lily Collins makes her first appearance! Plus much, much more…

Day Five: Friday

Because I am actually in a scene today, I have to show up early for costume and makeup and hair. I pass Robbie on the way to set — most parts of sets are unglamorous, back alleys and loading docks and that sort of thing.

I get a trailer of my own(!), bonus of which means SIDEBURNS GUY has to bring me tea. We discuss his sudden fame.

Godfrey is on set early to get his hair and makeup done too. Of course he looks cool even without his hair and makeup done. Here he is wearing his Magnus jacket and jewelry but without his hair done yet. And the shades are his.

I am informed [that I'm] going to be some sort of cat demon in a business suit. Maybe running a cat demon empire. I’m not totally clear on it, but I do know I have a great selection of AMAZING SHOES to choose from. Everyone who knows me knows I am obsessed with shoes, so this is the greatest day of my life. I finally pick a pair that are black and sparkly.

After that, I get ushered into hair and makeup. Someone has pasted something hilarious but profane to the mirror; they tell me it was Kevin. It’s super fun being worked over by makeup people, especially when their instructions are to go wild and crazy. My favorite part is getting the cat ears attached. They are bright gold and held on with a band and a million hairpins.

After makeup, I wobble on my high heels over to set, which is inside an enormous mansion. It has been done up with bright lights and Chinese lanterns. There are tables everywhere, and on the tables are the brightly colored party drinks from City of Bones. Harald positions me carefully at a table with a ghoul and a banshee.

It’s already dark, and really cold, so we all get little handwarmers to hold onto. The ghoul and the banshee are big Hunger Games fans. We talk about that for a while. The crew keeps coming over to ask me questions, and so does Harald. Eventually the ghoul is like, “Who are you?” I explain I am the author and they seem pleased to have me since they feel this means we are likely to get more blankets and handwarmers.

There are long pauses between takes during which Kevin and Jamie have a contest regarding who can jump higher and touch the tree branches. The girls are much calmer and obviously very cold and covered in blankets since the scene requires them to be in party dresses — very short!

Lily and Godfrey have a lot of dialogue as Clary and Magnus. I sneak a picture of them in front of some cool screens.

After several hours, the shooting seems to have wrapped up so I am ready to go home when I find out that no, it’s not over — all the scenes have to be shot again, from a different angle. We all shuffle around the tables and it’s about three in the morning so I start napping on the table in between takes. Acting is hard, I observe. No one is all that sympathetic.

MTV is on set that day so everyone is doing their interviews in between the action as well. Godfrey has to do his with no pants on, but you can’t tell because he’s sitting down. Now you know, though.

Finally. I am ready to go home. It’s dawn, so I go grab my suitcase and head to the Toronto airport to fly home. I am unable to get the cat ears out and have to walk through the airport wearing them. I get a lot of strange looks and set off the metal detector. When the guard asks me about the ears I explain I was in a movie. “Sure, you were,” he says. Clearly the glamour is over!

 Thank you TEEN for sharing Cassie's Diaries with us. What do you Shaodwhunters think?

Cassie Clare heads to Los Angeles to do research for THE DARK ARTIFICES!

On Tuesday, Cassie wrapped up the last stop of the Clockwork Princess tour in Vancouver. Now Cassandra Clare is headed to Los Angeles to research for The Dark Artifices.

Here is the synopsis:

Los Angeles, 2012. It’s been five years since the events of the Mortal Instruments when Nephilim stood poised on the brink of oblivion and Shadowhunter Emma Carstairs lost her parents. After the blood and violence she witnessed as a child, Emma has dedicated her life to the eradication of demons and being the best, fastest and deadliest Shadowhunter since Jace Lightwood. Raised in the Los Angeles Institute, Emma is paired as a parabatai with her best friend, Julian. As Emma hunts those who caused the death of her parents, the trail they’re following leads back to those they’ve always been taught to trust. At the same time, Emma is falling in love with Julian — her closest friend and, because he is her parabatai, the one person in the world she’s absolutely forbidden by Shadowhunter Law to love. Set against the glittering backdrop of present-day Los Angeles, Emma must learn to trust her head and her heart as she investigates a demonic plot that stretches from the warlock-run nightclubs of the Sunset Strip to the enchanted sea that pounds the beaches of Santa Monica.

The first book of The Dark Artifices is expected to be in stores in March 2015.

Aidan Turner named on list for next Ryan Gosling

Aidan Turner (Photo: Rex/Rex USA)
Everyone loves Ryan Gosling, and fans are just beside themselves with the fact that he may be temporarily sidelining his acting chops.

Well, Aidan Turner has been named by Refinery29 as one of eleven actors who will be the next Ryan Gosling! Exciting, right? Turner, who is going to be Luke Garroway in the upcoming The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, has been on our list of actors who we adore even before he was tapped to play the werewolf. Let's see why Refinery29 has placed him on the Gosling Grid:

Aidan Turner
On the Gosling Grid because:
He might not be a household name yet, but just wait: He's got a hefty role in the next two Hobbit movies, and is playing the good guy in this year's Twilight and City Of Bones. Like Gosling, he also got his start on the small screen, as well, with the BBC series Being Human. Oh, and he's got an Irish accent. Just saying.

Other hotties on the list, who we can all agree are amazing actors worth of Ryan Gosling fame stature, are Nicholas Hoult, Sam Claflin, Jim Sturgess, Max Thierot, Max Minghella, Donald Glover, Tom Hardy, Eddie Redmayne, and Douglas Booth.

Are you excited to see Aidan as Luke in TMI: City of Bones? Share your thoughts below!

Music Monday #24: "My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)" by Fall Out Boy

I've been looking for a song that reminds me of one very sassy Isabelle Lightwood. I think I found it. This week's Music Monday is "My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)" by Fall Out Boy.

I don't know if it's the use of the flame thrower in the video or the fact that this song takes no prisoners, but it totally reminds me of Isabelle. Even though she is drop dead gorgeous, Izzy is also deadly. It's also a return for a broken up Fall Out Boy, and who doesn't rejoice in their return?
Got a song for Music Monday? Make sure to share it with us in the comments below or to @TMI_Institute on Twitter.

Robert Sheehan: 'Mortal Instruments like Indiana Jones'

It may not have large boulders rolling toward you and a dashing man equipped with a whip, but Robert Sheehan has revealed that 'The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones' has an "uninhibited sense of adventure", much like the Indiana Jones franchise.

The 'Misfits' alum, slated to hit the big screens as Simon Lewis in the hotly anticipated big screen adaptation of Cassandra Clare's young adult sci-fi novel has compared TMI to the Harrison Ford-starring franchise, revealing it has an "uninhibited sense of adventure".

In an exclusive interview with BANG Showbiz on the red carpet at the Jameson Empire Awards on Sunday, he said: "It's a great big fat action film. Basically, I think it's magical and wonderful. For me, it was lots of great big fun shooting it because I was regressed back to being a boy because it was all very fantastical. There were lots of vampires, werewolves and all that business. It was great. It lent itself well to the imagination."

"I think it has an uninhibited sense of adventure. There's a wonderful, tangential sense to the adventure, much in the way of Indiana Jones, where he basically gets pulled to and fro in the mad tide of adventure and [the films are] completely out of control from start to finish.

"That's what I love about the script and that's what I think the script has done."

Sheehan also confirmed that he and his fellow cast mates are signed on to star in potential sequels to the movie, which is based on the first of Clare's bestselling 'The Mortal Instruments' books - five of which have been published, with a sixth due for release next year.

Quizzed about his contractual obligations for future sequels, he said: "Yes, we are indeed."

'The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones' is due for release on August 23, 2013.

Aidan Turner and Robert Sheehan makes MovieFone's 10 Young Irish Actors on the Rise

MovieFone took a look at one of our favorite countries and compiled a list of the Irish Stars we Love: 10 young actors on the rise. They have two actors on the list from The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones: Aidan Turner and Robert Sheehan>.

Aidan Turner:

Vital Stats:British TV fans will recognize Turner, 29, as the sexy vampire on the supernatural BBC series Being Human. He most recently played Kili, one of the central dwarves, in the first of Peter Jackson's The Hobbit trilogy.
Irish Cred: He was born and raised in Clondaklin, a town in South Dublin and graduated from the Gaiety School of Acting, also the alma mater of Stuart Townsend and Olivia Wilde.

What's Next: Turner will reprise his role as Kili in the next two Hobbit installments, and he returns to the supernatural world as a werewolf in this summer's YA adaptation, 'The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.

Robert Sheehan:

Vital Stats: Like Turner, Sheehan, 25, starred a popular British TV show, the "Heroes" meets "Skins" series "Misfits." Sheehan also co-starred opposite Martin McCann in "Killing Bono" and "Harry Potter" ginger Rupert Grint in the indie coming-of-age drama "Cherrybomb." He's already been in 15 movies.

Irish Cred: A comedic actor with a killer brogue, Sheehan was born in Portlaoise, County Laois.

What's Next: Sheehan plays Simon, protagonist Clary's (Lily Collins) wisecracking best friend in "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones," which also features fellow Irishmen Aidan Turner and Jonathan Rhys-Meyers and could be the next big YA franchise.
To take a look at others on the list, including Sara Bolger, Evanna Lynch and Martin McCann (who played Bono in "Killing Bono" with Robbie and was in "Titanic: Blood & Steel" with Kevin Zegers) head on over to>for the full list.
