‘Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones’ Featurette Whips Up New Scenes, Interviews

If you can tear your ogling eyes away from the dark and dreamy new “Mortal Instruments: City of Bones” one-sheet, debuted EXCLUSIVELY on Hollywood Crush yesterday, we have something else you might want to see: a brand-new featurette from the Cassandra Clare adaptation, out August 21.

Apple has this tasty bit of fruit from the Nephilim tree: a mix of film footage and behind-the scenes interviews with the cast, including Lily Collins, Jamie Campbell Bower and Jonathan Rhys Meyers.

Predictably, Jamie had arguably the funniest bit of insight to offer regarding his snarky Shadowhunter Jace Wayland’s relationship with protagonist Clary Fray:

“I think Jace is drawn to Clary because he sees a strength in her that he’s never seen in anybody else,” he mused. “Plus, she’s smokin’ hot. He’s destined to fall in love with her.”

Also of interest: This is (if memory serves) our first look at Isabelle’s whip skills, after so many flashes of her wielding a flamethrower. And, of course, she looks no less bad-ass with her more stream-lined (yet stylish!) weaponry.
