'Mortal Instruments' Movie May Slay You

If you find yourself pining after a patience rune as you count down the days until "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" debuts in theaters on August 23, you can at least take heart knowing that it's probably going to be really, really good.

This according to star Kevin Zegers, who took to Twitter today to hype the film for fans.

For the uninitiated, "City of Bones" revolves around Brooklyn teen Clary Fray (played by Lily Collins), who discovers she's a member of a secret race of demon-slayers known as Shadowhunters. Kevin plays a Shadowhunter ally named Alec, though the two have an often contentious relationship. One we, obviously, can't wait to see brought to life on the big screen!
