The first trailer for the film adaptation of Cassandra Clare’s book “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones” shows many of the major characters from the book and the dangerous world they live in.

“Bones” follows Clary Fray, a teenage girl living in New York City who goes to a club called the Pandemonium one evening and glimpses a group of people killing someone in the middle of the crowded room. Only Clary is able to see the murderers, which include a boy named Jace, and she soon discovers that the group are all Shadowhunters, people who work to defeat evil supernatural creatures that normal people can’t see.

The series currently consists of five books, with a sixth due next March, and the movie adaptation of the first novel stars “Mirror Mirror” actress Lily Collins as Clary and “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part One” actor Jamie Campbell-Bower as Jace.

The trailer begins with Hodge Starkweather (“Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows” actor Jared Harris), Jace and the other Shadowhunters’ teacher, telling Clary about the supernatural world.
