If the first two "Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" trailers left you with a Valentine-shaped hole in your heart, then this brand-new international trailer should—at least partially—smooth things over.
The clip is largely a retread of previously seen footage: Clary (played by Lily Collins) witnessing Jace (played by Jamie Campbell Bower) slaying a demon in Pandemonium, Clary learning her true identity as a Shadowhunter, Alec (played by Kevin Zegers) confronting Jace. But in between, the film's big bad (played by Jonathan Rhys Meyers) finally gets a proper look.
"The world is ours to take," he tells Clary. "Let me show you who you really are, who you were destined to be."
"You don't know the first thing about me," she retorts. (Good girl!)
After getting a teensy-weensy taste of it in "Paris, je t'aime," Olga Kurylenko must have decided she rather enjoyed draining human beings of their delicious innards like so many Capri Sun pouches—because today, she's officially on board to play yet another bloodsucking beauty in the "Vampire Academy" movie!
Deadline has the report that Olga has scored the role of Ellen Kirova, the lovely mistress of the titular school for various vampires, in the film based on Richelle Mead's bestselling series.
"Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters" is the first of what producers hope will be a multi-film franchise based on Richelle's books, which follow 17 year-old Dhampir Rose Hathaway as she matriculates at St. Vladimir's school and trains to be a guardian for her Moroi best friend, Lissa. (There's also a forbidden romance, of course, because of reasons.)
...And we're not talking about a facial mask. The actress took to Twitter today to enthuse about the just-released film starring Matthew McConaughey.
Matthew stars as a fugitive on the run, who's trying to reunite with his lady love (Reese Witherspoon) and is aided by two teen boys in the process.
We've spied Magnus Bane in his supernatural skivvies and listened as Lily Collins waxed poetic about her passion project, so it seems time we shine the spotlight on a character who's a bit more mundane—in abilities, not personality, that is.
That's right; we're taking up with Clary's best friend Simon (otherwise known as actor Robert Sheehan) in our latest set visit from "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones."
And for fans of Cassandra Clare's best-selling fantasy series, Simon is much more than the boy next door; he's also the boy totally in love with our red-headed heroine. It's an unrequited love Robert touched on during Josh Horowitz's visit to the Toronto set last year.
With the theatrical release of "The Hunger Games" sequel, "Catching Fire," still a blistering seven months away, fans are no doubt desperately searching for ways to stoke their Panem love flames until November. So here's a bit of kindling for you: The song "Beyond Fire," featured in the "Catching Fire" trailer that debuted during the MTV Movie Awards, has been released as a single, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The moody, epic track is the work of T.T.L., a pairing of artist Tying Tiffany and producer Lorenzo Montana, and is available to download on iTunes and stream on Spotify. The duo is no stranger to the dystopian drama—they previously wrote "Deep Shadow," which was featured in the first "Hunger Games" trailer.
Katniss, Tris and Clary: There is another poised to join your ranks.
"Graceling," Kristin Cashore's debut novel and the first in her fantasy trilogy, has been optioned by Reliance Entertainment with screenwriter Piers Ashworth attached to pen the script, Variety reports.
The novel centers around teen Katsa, one of a select few Graced with a special skill. But unlike those with superior abilities in, say, dancing or storytelling, Katsa is a born killer, and it's a talent put to nefarious use by her uncle, who just so happens to be king. But Katsa's life is forever changed when she meets a fellow Graceling named Po.
The soon-to-be-released "Tiger Eyes" has long been our most anticipated book-to-movie adaptation that doesn't involve teenagers murdering each other in a televised tournament for public enjoyment, but there's been an infuriating dearth of promotional buzz and tease-y stuff leading up to the film's June release—leading Judy Blume fans everywhere to lie awake at night consumed by worry that something had gone horribly wrong, preventing the film from getting all the attention it deserved. But no more! Because there's a trailer! Finally! And best of all, it looks to be a completely wonderful and faithful adaptation of the beloved source material.
The film stars Willa Holland as Davey, a teenage girl whose family moves across the country to New Mexico after her father is killed. It's the beginning of a tremendous journey of self-discovery as Davey tries to cope with her grief, rebuild her life and negotiate the guilt she feels over her father's death—all while having her eyes opened to the struggles of other people against their own personal demons.

The clip in question is actually an alternate ending for the film that also stars Bradley Cooper, Robet De Niro and Jacki Weaver. Click play to watch the video and tell us in the comments which version of the "Silver Linings Playbook" ending you like best!

Any Shadowhunter worth his black would never be caught dead using a stunt double while destroying dastardly demons, and so it was that the actors portraying badass Nephilim in the big-screen adaptation of Cassandra Clare's "Mortal Instruments" underwent weeks of grueling training to pull off all those jumps, kicks and flips.
When we caught up with star Kevin Zegers recently at WonderCon, he explained the process of getting into top physical condition to portray Alec Lightwood.
"I think I showed up about four weeks before we started, and it went through filming, so then on lunch break we would go and rehearse the fight sequences," he said of the rigorous preparation. "[Director] Harald [Zwart] wanted us to do our own stuff, which I think when you watch the movie you can tell. It's sort of great, and you can see that it's us, and it's violence and just as, like, a guy, I saw the new trailer and it looks awesome. It looks like a big action movie, also obviously, the love story and everything are going on and the fantasy stuff. The action stuff looks awesome."
Shailene Woodley is proving just how Dauntless she can be in a first look at "Divergent," courtesy of Entertainment Weekly.
Based on the best-selling dystopian drama by Veronica Roth, "Divergent" takes place in a near-future Chicago, where society has been divided into five factions, each upholding a different virtue. Citizens are tested as teens to determine where they fit, but when Beatrice "Tris" Prior (Shailene) receives a "divergent" result (meaning she doesn't fit squarely into any faction), she leaves the safety of her Abnegation home and joins up with the brave Dauntless. (Explaining the knives in the image, which are part of the initiation process for the fearless faction.)
