The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones Takes 2nd Place!
We almost did it! Despite not walking away with 1st place in MTV's Movie Brawl 2013, the TMI fandom proved that a movie that hasn't even been released yet, and doesn't have nearly the movie following it's competition, The Hunger Games has, is a force to be reckoned with. Taking the silver/2nd place is a huge thing for us fans. I'm amazed at how the TMI fandom has pulled together to vote and spread the word. Though if there were any movie that we had to lose 1st place to, I'd would have chosen Catching Fire.
MTV had this to say:
Once the second consecutive trip to the finals was confirmed for “The Hunger Games” franchise, that’s when the real battle began. In a tournament that notched 10 million votes, the results pointed to a clear, 100,000-vote win for “Catching Fire” over “The Mortal Instruments.” The strong showing from the Shadowhunters proved that the YA adaptation is a force to be reckoned with.
Well said MTV! I totally agree. I'm pretty sure Jace would agree too. ;)

TMI fandom rules. I am so excited that TMI made it to the finals without a movie being already released.
