Screen Gems has released a new, five-minute clip from director Harald Zwart’s upcoming YA adaptation The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. Set in contemporary New York City, the film tells the story of Clary Fray (Lily Collins), a seemingly ordinary teenager who discovers that she is the descendant of a line of Shadowhunters, a secret organization of young half-angel warriors in an ancient battle to protect our world from demons. This clip is the same one the studio showed off at Comic-Con, and it features a pretty intense fight scene between Lena Headey and Kevin Durand, as well as a really gnarly creature.
Hit the jump to watch the extended clip. The film also stars Jamie Campbell Bower, Kevin Zegers, Jared Harris, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, CCH Pounder and Aidan Turner. The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones opens on August 21st.
