A Eulogy – The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones Movie Poster

It never even saw the light of production, heard ‘cut’ yelled across set, or heard a scream in a sound stage. The follow up movie to The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, has been shut down before it even started production. Due to low numbers from the first film, Sony has decided to ‘delay’ production of City of Ashes…indefinitely.

We here at justjmac are indefinitely saddened by this delay. Besides one or two slightly corny bits it was a quite pleasant movie to watch. Now, I don’t know if one could follow it if they hadn’t read the books but still… they should just go ahead and make it for our sake.

le sad.

NEW The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones Trailer

We are SO excited to see The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones film adaptation. The new trailer is a bit longer and leaves us counting down the days until August (and also feeling kind of sad for Simon!)

Also, can we talk about how I totally don’t mind Lilly Collins big eyebrows? Like… sure, they’re big but at least they are manicured. Some people just have the bone structure to pull it off. Imagine her with out those eyebrows…she might look funny.

TMI: Magnus Bane Forgets His Pants & Flirts with MTV

Recently Godfrey Gao met up with our favorite movie nerd Joshua Horowitz, for a little onset interview.

WATCH -> MTV First Look: Magnus Bane

Can we talk about how tall Godfrey is?! Also, Godfrey-> Magnus? I think they picked the guy with the best name. Seriously How often do you meet people named Godfrey AND how often do you meet people named Magnus? Not that often!
I know I shouldn’t be shocked that this is Magnus’–Sorry– Godfrey’s first interview in English and not in Mandarin, but I am. I really thought his accent was Latin.  I know, I know you’re all probably like “Hello, Jmac. Does he look Latin?!” And no, he doesn’t but I thought maybe he pulled a Paolo Nutini and his ethnicity is from one place and he was raised in, oh I don’t know, Madrid??

I am way off topic here. Anyways…

The best line out of that whole interview was:

“It’s really cold,” Godfrey said, all smiles. “At first, I was like, ‘All right, I thought this party was going to be an indoor mansion with a lot of lights and chandeliers like you see in back.’ Turns out, it’s outside, and it’s actually, I think, 11 degrees Celsius, so I’m just hanging out with my boxers on and everyone sees … I have great legs. But it’s very fun to play Magnus Bane, as you can see.”

This guy is great. If you all didn’t know, this is my number one favorite YA series which is totally funny ( in an ironic way). I am so stoked for this movie and with every new still or snippet I am more accepting of Jamie Campbell Bower as the character of Jace.

What do you think of Godfrey as Magnus?

Why We Love Movie Trailers

Are you a connoisseur of movie trailers? I think one of the best parts about going to the movies is watching the movie trailers. If we are running late and miss the trailers, it totally ruins the mood for the rest of the movie. I love getting little snip-its of films that I hadn’t heard of before or haven’t seen a trailer, yet.

Last night my cousin, her friend and I decided to go see Warm Bodies. We loaded up on essentials first (Butterfingers, KitKat bar, Sour Patch kids, Cadburry eggs, Nutter Butters, Rasinets, Hot Tamales and ice cream–we don’t mess around). Which, we snuck in because, let’s be real, if we had bought the stuff at the movie theater our $15 dollar bill would have been close to $45. We made sure to get there just in time to grab the last remaining seats for optimal viewing pleasure, and sat down for the best part.

The trailers.

…and we were not let down. Summit/Lionsgate gave us some great trailers pre-Warm Bodies. It was a mixture of YA books turned movies, zombies, magic and dystopian films. Everything a girl could dream of! Here are the trailers our movie theater had:
