There is most certainly an audience for the film “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones,” fans of the six (planned) novels about demons, supernatural demon fighters, vampires, werewolves, witches and warlocks.
They'll thrill to all the endless litany of runes, talismans, history and “rules” of this world of shadow-hunters descended from an angel that showed up to help crusading knights a thousand years ago. They'll eagerly await the brief, throw-away visit to the “City of Bones” (a cemetery) of the title.
