Because the mall tour went so fantastically well Sony decided to add a last stop — in L.A.! (We’ll all be there anyway for the press junket and premiere, so it was really the only place it could be done!)

Tuesday, August 13th from 2pm-4pm – LOS ANGELES
TMI event at The Americana at Brand – 889 Americana Way, Glendale CA 91210
Talent: Lily Collins, Jamie Campbell Bower, Kevin Zegers, director Harald Zwart and best-selling author, Cassandra Clare

Harald Zwart talks CITY OF BONES teaser trailer, promotional photos and more

tmisource:

Harald Zwart, the director of THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES, took to Tumblr on Monday (Nov. 5) to answer fan questions about the release of THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES teaser trailer, promotional photos and taking on such a beloved series.

On the release of THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES teaser trailer with Breaking Dawn Part 2:

I do know that our trailer is tied to Breaking Dawn. This could mean that it will be released with the trailer in all territories. But I’m not sure.

There is a teaser, yes.

On working on the film:

I am very involved. I am editing every day with my editor and follow every step until the movie is released.  I use both FCP and AVID. I think both are great.

On filming in New York City:

I will go there shortly to film exterior shots.

On directing future MORTAL INSTRUMENTS films:

It’s a hard question to answer.  Obviously I really enjoy this project and love working with the actors.  We have to finish the first one before we start thinking any further.

On the possibility of a London premiere:

I think so. With so many great Brits in our cast, I think we have to have a premiere in London.

Describe THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS in three words:

Romantic, Magical and Smart.   I think that covers it.

On taking on a big project like THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS:

I must admit I did not know how big it was.  And I think it was a good thing, because I wanted to do the movie because I liked the material – not just because it was already huge.  It’s better if you do something because it really interests you, and not because it’s a good bet.
