So, the question on everybody’s lips is “who should play Newt Scamander in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them?” We’re seriously excited about the project and have pulled together a list of a few actors that we think would suit the role.

Video - Lake Bell And Ashley Greene Deny Paparazzi Decent Shots At Marchesa Show During NY Fashion Week - Part 1


Several well-dressed familiar females hit the seats at the Marchesa Spring/Summer 2014 show which took place during the Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week. Among them were 'What Happens In Vegas' actress Lake Bell and 'Twilight' star Ashley Greene, the latter of which was rather impatient while posing for photographers on leaving the show, but happily let a nearby fan get a quick snap on her phone.

Ben Batman Affleck

This week's biggest story is that Ben Affleck will play Bruce Wayne (aka Batman) in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel, opposite Henry Cavill's Clark Kent (aka Superman). There's no word on the plot or the title of the new film, which is scheduled for release in the summer of 2015. Word has it that the two superheroes will be at odds with each other, setting up some big battles between them. Read all about the epic prospect here.

On Tuesday night, London hosted the world premiere of the new One Direction movie This Is Us, and the screams of pre-pubescent girls could be heard miles away from Leicester Square as the boy band, their manager Simon Cowell and a range of starry guests turned up to walk the red carpet. The film opens next week and you can look at photos from the event here.

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones Review


Weak

Fans of Cassandra Clare's book series won't mind that this film is overcrowded and chaotic, but the uninitiated will be worn out by what feels like a superficial mash-up of leather-clad stereotypes. Director Zwart (who remade The Karate Kid) certainly creates a lively sense of energy, zipping through each scene as if he's trying to cram every moment in the book into two hours. But as a result, nothing grabs hold.

Our hero is Clary (Collins), a New York teen whose mother (Headey) never told her that she was a Shadowhunter, a half-angel whose job is to protect humanity from demons. But just as she meets goth dreamboat Shadowhunter Jace (Campbell Bower), her mom is kidnapped. So she and her best pal Simon (Sheehan), who has a secret crush on her, travel with Jace into the city's underworld of angels, demons, werewolves and vampires. At the secret Shadowhunter headquarters, she meets leader Hodge (Harris) as well as siblings Alec and Isabelle (Zegers and West). And everyone warns her about the villainous Valentine (Meyers), who has some sort of nefarious master plan involving Clary and her magical cup.

The film is structured as a series of quests, as Clary learns about her supernatural abilities by visiting the City of Bones under a cemetery, breaking into a church to collect a stash of demon-fighting weapons, consulting with a variety of magical creatures, and so on. But these individual sequences never quite connect together into a story with any momentum. It's simply impossible to get involved in these events without being able to identify with the characters, none of whom are properly developed. Obviously, readers of the books won't have this problem, but such a fragmented film is unlikely to draw new fans to the franchise.

Why Isn't 'Mortal Instruments' A 'Twilight' Copy?


Lily Collins Jamie Campbell Bower Harald Zwart

Mortal Instruments: City of Bones has not been treated kindly by critics. The movie adaptation of author Cassandra Clare's six-part young adult fantasy series has been found to have too many similarities to Stephenie Meyer's vampire novels, too soon after Twilight.

Mortal Instruments
The Young Castt Assemble In The Supernatural Action Adventure.

The trailer itself is laden with plotlines that have become clichéd in the fantasy drama. A young girl named Clary (Lily Collins) reaches the end of her teens without finding out she's not a "Mundane" (yep, this one has words for "normal" humans too). In fact, unbeknownst to the wide-eyed yet determined female protagonist, she has the powers of a 'Shadowhunter' - angelic beings whose job it is to rid the world of demons.

Review Round-Up: 'The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones'


Lily Collins Jonathan Rhys Meyers Kevin Zegers Jamie Campbell Bower Robert Sheehan

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones was released in the UK and US yesterday (21st August). The majority of reviews have been highly critical of the movie, claiming it draws too heavily on typical aspects of the teenager supernatural genre. The film may have been compared with Harry Potter and The Twilight Saga, however it seems unlikely, if the critics are correct, to be as successful as such franchises.

The Mortal Instruments is based on the best-selling series of teen fiction books by Cassandra Clare. The fantasy movie centres on Clary Fray (Lily Collins), who discovers she is descended from a race of warriors. These warriors fight evil in an alternative New York City called 'Downworld'. Collins is supported by such actors as Jamie Campbell Bower (The Twilight Saga); Kevin Zegers (Gossip Girl); Jemima West (The Borgias); and Robert Sheehan (Misfits). They are pitted against Jonathon Rhys Meyers (The Tudors) in the role of Valentine.

Fans Disappointed By 'Mortal Instruments' Movie: Were We Ready For Another Fantasy Adaptation?


Lily Collins Jamie Campbell Bower

Mortal Instruments: City of Bones has been released in movie form and is the latest in a line of teen fiction adaptations to take flight on screen.

The floodgates have been opened now with Hollywood seemingly rushing to turn as many fiction series into movies as possible. With nerd culture suddenly trendy, it's now seen as cool to be openly enraptured by a character or plotline and Comic-Con type events where new releases are trumpeted are bigger than ever.

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones Trailer


Clary Fray has been made to live as a normal girl all her life with her mother making sure she never discovers who she truly is. However, when she watches a man getting slaughtered in a nightclub and seemingly is the only one who notices, she starts to suspect that there's more to the world than most people can see. The killer is a man called Jace who reveals himself as a Shadowhunter; a half-angel demon slayer with the power to make himself invisible to the Mundane (humans). Soon, Clary discovers that her mother is in grave danger having been brutally kidnapped from their home and she finds out that her mother is also a Shadowhunter who has been having Clary's memories of unusual happenings blocked all her life. Clary must embrace her true identity and help Jace and the other Shadowhunters in the battle to maintain the balance of good and evil and return her mother back to her.

Here comes the latest teen fantasy movie adaptation in the shape of 'The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones'. Based on the first book of a series by Cassandra Clare, the movie has been directed by Harald Zwart ('The Karate Kid' [2010], 'Agent Cody Banks') and written by I. Marlene King ('Just My Luck', 'Now and Then') and Jessica Postigo in her screenwriting debut. It is due to hit screens on August 23rd 2013.
