Pack your black—we're heading deep into the "City of Bones."
The first trailer for the big-screen adaptation of Cassandra Clare's best-selling "Mortal Instruments" novel won't hit the MTV interwebs until later tonight at 10:30 ET, but we have something for you to ogle in the meantime: namely, the film's first one-sheet!
Utilizing a dazzling reflective image, the poster cleverly depicts the film's dual settings: New York City and the titular City of Bones, where the Shadowhunters' most wise and powerful, know as the Silent Brothers, reside, and where heroine Clary Fray retreats to seek answers to her family's complicated past—and present.
Check out the full poster and synopsis after the jump!
With "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" hitting theaters this Friday, the time has come to say some hard goodbyes. Goodbye to copper-eyed vampires with glittering pecs that sparkle in the Pacific Northwest sun; goodbye to shapeshifting wolfmen who are allergic to wearing shirts; goodbye to Forks High School and its charmingly clueless student body. But of all the things we'll miss from the annals of the "Twilight" universe, there's one individual whose loss we're feeling particularly keenly —one who made us laugh, who made us swoon and whose mere presence on camera stole the show every time. And today, we're delighted to announce that this star of the films has taken time from his busy schedule to chat exclusively, one-on-one with Hollywood Crush.
We're talking, of course, about Charlie Swan's Mustache.
Lest you missed all the hubbub yesterday, Saoirse Ronan is giving the world a first, EXCLUSIVE look at the trailer for her soon-to-be-released sci-fi romance, "The Host," here on MTV.com.
Prepare to have your mind blown by the sheer spectacle of it all.
In the trailer, we see the world of the future: where disembodied aliens came to Earth, overwrote everyone's brains with their own parasitic consciousness and more or less turned the human race into a bunch of walking iPods made of meat. Only a few have been spared—including Melanie, who manages to meet and fall in love with one of the few remaining non-pod-person males left on earth. But life on the run is risky, and it's not long before Melanie finds herself captured by the alien Souls (led by an ice-cold Diane Kruger)... and at 1:37, things get real. Action! Desert caves! Battles for the future of humanity! Plus, cute boys! Looks exciting, doesn't it?
And so it was that Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner put on their prettiest party frocks and walked "The Twilight Saga" black carpet one final time, for last night's premiere of "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" at L.A.'s Nokia Theatre. And, as we've come to expect from the top trio, they did it in fine fashion.
But there was a twist! Surprisingly, the award for most stunning style went not to one of the lovely leading ladies but to dapper hottie Rob, who flaunted an emerald green Gucci suit with the aplomb of someone twice his age. Well done, sir. GF Kristen wasn't to be overlooked, though: She simply sparkled in her strapless, nude Zuhair Murad, which she topped off with soft curls and a blood-red lip. So Old Hollywood glam!
Hold on to your seraph blades, Shadowhunter enthusiasts: We've got BIG news! MTV.com has been bestowed the grand honor of debuting the very first teaser trailer for "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones," starring Lily Collins, Jamie Campbell Bower and Robert Sheehan!
Cue the swoons of a million fangirls!
Based on the urban fantasy novel by Cassandra Clare, "City of Bones" follows seemingly average teen Clary Fray as she uncovers her secret roots in the centuries-old society of demon-destroying warriors known as Shadowhunters.
If you've been following along with our "Warm Bodies" coverage recently, you'll know that this writer's affection for the book and upcoming film is turning into a love story of its own. I've obsessed over the first photos and posters and earlier this week dreamt up a list of things I hoped to see in the first trailer which, as luck would have it, hit the web ahead of its theatrical debut during "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" next week.
Now I've done a few of these trailer wish lists in the past but never before have my wishes been granted so fully. This trailer has everything I wanted to see and then some. Too much in a few places, actually.
If it's not a coven of bloodthirsty vamps, it's a roving gang of Port Angeles hoodlums, or—even more embarrassingly—her own two left feet. Yes, whatever the danger, it seems "Twilight" protagonist Bella Swan is a magnet for it. Hence, the teen's need for 24-hour protection to rival our Commander in Chief's Secret Service detail. And we've got all the proof of this you need in the video below.
In anticipation of the film franchise's long-awaited finale, "Breaking Dawn - Part 2," your fellow "Twilight" obsessives at MTV News took a gander at the saga's first four installments, making special note of all the moments Edward, Jacob and their ilk pledge their protection to Bella. And, boy, does it happen a lot!
See what we mean by clicking play on the video above. Save Bella—goodness knows she needs it...for now!
Leave it to Robert Pattinson to somehow work in the phrase "massage my butt cheek" into a recollection of all things "Twilight" during the junket for the film franchise's finale, "Breaking Dawn - Part 2."
You see, MTV News' Josh Horowitz wanted to spend a pleasant moment hearkening back to the very beginnings of the saga, and thusly asked Rob what he remembered from that first day of filming "Twilight."
"We were doing the fight scene at the end of the first one, and I tore my glute, well, almost tore it, basically in my second shot of the whole movie—of the whole series," the actor explained. "[They] had to get a physiotherapist to come in and massage my butt cheek for the rest of the day." (Hard job!)
The worlds of our favorite YA adaptations are colliding!
While promoting "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2," Kristen Stewart dished to MTV News that not only have she and Jennifer Lawrence met, but they also totally hit it off. The ladies were seated together at a recent event, and we couldn't resist asking what two of the biggest names in Hollywood talked about.
"We didn't compare 'Twilight' to 'The Hunger Games,'" Kristen admitted with a laugh, though she added, "I had seen it."
Taylor Lautner's well-chiseled torso isn't a new sight for fans of "The Twilight Saga"—they've been drooling over that six-pack ever since the 20-year-old bulked up for "New Moon." And, as a shapeshifter, Taylor's used to losing his clothes when he morphs into his wolfy alter ego. But, as it turns out, Taylor doffs his top (and bottoms!) in a much more interesting fashion in the film franchise's finale.
During our recent MTV First: "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2," Josh Horowitz asked the cast to offer up their favorite scene from the final film, and co-star Kristen Stewart relayed this gem: "My favorite scene in the second part of 'Breaking Dawn' is probably when he takes his clothes off in front of my father," she said, pointing to Taylor.
"That's an amazing scene," Taylor agreed. "I still had to take off my shirt, but at least it wasn't rid—no, it still was ridiculous. I took my pants off."
