After Clary Fray (Collins), a seemingly ordinary teenager, witnesses a murder at a club, she finds out that her mother, Jocelyn (Headey), is attacked in their home in New York City
and kidnapped by a man named Valentine (Rhys Meyers) in his search of the Mortal Cup. She calls on a Shadowhunter named Jace (Campbell Bower) and his fellow Shadowhunters, Alec (Zegers) and Isabelle Lightwood (West), to help her on her quest to rescue her mother and along the way finds out truths about her past and bloodline and becomes the person her mother feared she would become.
Clary learns that her mother was a Shadowhunter, which are half-angel
, half-human warriors
and that she too has the powers of one and tries to harness her powers in time to save her mother. Using her newfound gifts, Clary finds the Cup that her mother safely hid, only to be betrayed and forced to relinquish it. Still reeling from this setback and racing to save her mother before it’s too late, Clary finds herself caught in a battle between forces she barely understands

I'm really looking forward to this one myself. I love the cast, and I've really liked what we've seen in the trailers so far.
I'd actually been planning on checking out the book series before I even knew the movie was coming out. Now that I know the movie is coming out in just a couple months I will be starting the first book once I finish up the first Wonder Woman trade paperback.
Over the course of many encounters and many years, I have successfully developed a standard operating procedure for dealing with big, nasty monsters. Run away. Me and Monty Python.
