    I could never bring myself to read these books just going by the synopsis.

    Feels like anything "young adult" these days is trying to be either the new Harry Potter or the new Twilight

    Constantin Film must be ridiculously confident in how the first film will do, as they're already in pre-production mode for Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes (filming is expected to begin October). Director Harald Zwart, screenwriter Jessica Postigo, and most of the cast are contracted to return. Sigourney Weaver is in talks to join the sequel.

    It's a little ambitious on the studio's part. Either this film was ridiculously cheap to make or the producers feel they have a sleeper hit on their hands.

    I have friends eagerly anticipating this, but it just looks like a TV show to me, the same as Twilight did.

    I couldn't believe what I just watched when I saw the trailer for this before I went to go see Wolverine.

    They can plan all they want but the studio ain't making a sequel unless the movie makes money.

    I dunno just looks like a B movie to me. Also . . . can't stand Jamie Campbell Bower. He was a terrible Arthur in Camelot.

    This movie's a hard read. I mean, I support good genre films especially ones aimed at teens. If they're fans of the property, who am I to judge?

    But yeah, I don't like Jamie Campbell Bower. Not a fan. I love Lilly Collins though; Audrey Hepburn would be flattered.

    For some reason I thought this was about the Catacombs of Paris.

    The trailer is actually decent and I like this magical teen **** but my sister said the book was boring. I don't think anything of her one way or the other but Hollywood sure is trying to make Collins happen.

    We will see if this is another Beautiful Creatures or Percy Jackson. The best it can hope for is Percy Jackson because it won't be another Twilight or Hunger Games.

    I think the one series THAT COULD be the next big thing is Divergent. At least when I saw the footage at Comic-Con, it looked like it has a vision..despite being a Hunger Games knock-off. But that's the business of YA books. Happens all the time.

    Divergent has more going for it than City of Bones and other YA book adaptations. It has Kate Winslet whom will make the movie look legit and Woodley who has tons of buzz on her for her performance in The Spectacular Now.

    I read that the books are giant sellers as well. I wholeheartedly admit that Divergent has a good chance of doing 150-175mil or so. I don't think quite Hunger Games numbers because the knock off almost never does as well as the original but it could be a hit. I'm keeping an eye on it.

    Yeah, it doesn't look bad. It has a great director and the cast is pretty darn good. Like what you said, Winslet and Woodley give the film a bit more gravity then having a cast full of nobodies. Not to say that being unknown is bad; it's always a tricky thing..

    City of Bones has a decent sized following; from what I know in the YA world however, I think the Vampire Diaries and Divergent have a bigger following.

    That's exactly what it is. Sony would've released this via Columbia Pictures (rather than Screen Gems) if they thought it had any chance of becoming the next Hunger Games. Screen Gems is usually reserved for cheaper genre releases.

    Yeah, Screen Gems screams 'we're the cheap branch of Sony'.
