TMI Movie News Weekly Wrap Up: The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones Trailer: MTV's Recent Coverage

If you're like us, than you've most likely watched this close to 100 times this week. 

Get More: 

No matter how many times I've watched it, there are things I've totally missed. Thankfully MTV News has complied a list of 5 things we might have missed, which is only understandable since there's so much awesomeness packed into this short feature.  (yes I some how missed Simon was shirtless, and that what I thought was a demon is indeed a Silent Brother *CREEPY!).

1) The Morgenstern Ring: I don't know how I missed this, but somehow I did.  Oh wait, I do know how, I was distracted by this....

JACE IN A HOODY!!! Thankfully not only did MTV News mentioned the ring, but Cassie also tweeted about it, with a snap shot from ET's TMI Trailer coverage.

2) Simon Shirtless- Seriously? How in the world did I miss this? I'm guessing this is right after he was turned back from being a rat, because why else would Simon run around half naked. NOT that anyone would complain about that. Hmm I wonder if we get to see Simon in a hoody. I wonder who could pull off the hoody look better, Jace or Simon......

3) Jace & Valentine Fight: Give it to him Jace! I.Can.Not.Wait.To.See.This. You know what's awesome about this, Jamie and Jonathan really are SPARING! No stunt doubles were used. In fact, many action scenes were done by the actors, which I love! 

4) Clary's Rune: One of the things I love about the runes, is that they are the runes Val created for Cassie back when TMI first came out. Cassie and I talked about this when I was in Toronto, and MTV News also mentioned that same thing about the runes in their post. I LOVE that the studio kept the authenticity of the runes and didn't do away with something us fans love and know, and create new ones for the movie.

5) A Silent Brother: Okay seriously, CREEPY! I totally mistook this Silent Brother for a demon, because I can see his eyes. Either way, the CREEPINESS of the brothers rings loud and clear with this picture. I swear the eyes make him all the more creepier. 

Want to hear some of Cassie's reactions to the trailer? Don't miss her interview with MTV News, which was posted here, where she gives her commentary.

Want to know more about the trailer and how quickly they made this? Check out the video below with MTV news talking to Harald about how they were able to make it so quickly.

TMI Movie News Weekly Wrap Up: Cassie Clare's Recent News/TMI Posts

This has been an insanely crazy week for me. Between long hours volunteering and co-running my kid's school's book fair, and my little girl's birthday celebrations this week I've been on the computer little except of course to watch the TMI trailer (numerous times, but who's counting *coughs*). I've missed a lot of great posts, so please indulge me while I flood the blog today with TMI movie related posts that Cassie, MTV news and others have posted this week. This posts is a re-cap of some of the posts you'll find on Cassie's tumblr from this week.

On the TMI Trailer being attached to Breaking Dawn 2, Cassie had this to say:

loved city of bones trailer will the trailer be connected to twilight film breaking dawn p2

The answer is yes, but.

Yes, it is, BUT don’t assume that means it will be at every theater playing Breaking Dawn 2! That is not the way of trailers. Theaters have some discretion about which trailers they pick up, etc. It will be in about 70% of theaters showing BD2 in the US and Canada and if you want to be absolutely sure you’ll be in a theater where they’re showing it, call the theater first and ask.

Internationally, every territory does its own thing. Some will have the trailer with BD2. Some will have it opening week, some the second week. Some won’t have it. I don’t have a territory by territory breakdown so all I can do is say, again, call the theater!

On runes: Cassie recently mentioned on her tumblr that, "I liked that they made the stele look like it really hurts. It's support to hurt." I would agree, this looks incredibly painful.

Cassie recently shared a post that likechildreninafairytale, did of Harald Zwart's Twitter Q&A about the movie with fans (taken from 11/16).  I know how time consuming long it takes to do this, and I want to say THANK YOU to Jamie for sharing this with us TMI fans who missed this.

HZ: If you want it enough. Everyone should follow their dreams.

@k0ala_2011: How many takes before Jamie nailed sliding across the hood of the cop car?
