It's summer, summer, summertime, time to sit back and unwind, as The Fresh Prince once rhymed. Iron Man, Wolverine, Superman and Hit-Girl are suiting up and the AC is pumping as studios trot out their big guns, eager to put butts in the seats with big stars, bigger explosions and lots of numbers after titles.
That's right, nearly a third of our list is sequels, there's even more that didn't make it, and that doesn't even count the reboots and potential franchise-starters in store as we dive headfirst into our glistening pool of summer movie bliss. Get More »
The back-to-back floppery of "Beautiful Creatures" and "The Host" has left a lot of industry folks confused about the perceived ticketing draw of Young Adult book-to-film properties. Aren't these movies supposed to be raking in gobs of dough and keying up innumerable sequels, the last of which will be a two-parter of some sort? Where are all the ladies and their signs at the midnight lines and the tattoos and such? To that we say, see the list. Know the list. The formula is much more complicated than it might seem.

Set visits are cool enough, but set visits that involve a big party scene? Even better.
MTV's Josh Horowitz was on the Toronto set of the highly anticipated "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" and got to hang out by the punch bowl with Lily Collins (Clary Fray), Jamie Campbell Bower (Jace Wayland), Kevin Zegers (Alec Lightwood), Jemima West (Isabelle Lightwood) and Robert Sheehan (Simon Lewis). Everyone seems very excited to be bringing Cassandra Clare's bestselling novel to life ... even at three o'clock in the morning.

We've been following the progress on Sony Screen Gems' "The Mortal Instruments" with bated breath for what seems like years now - inch by inch, casting announcement by casting announcement - so we're as amped as any Shadowhunter out there that things are finally underway for production on the book-to-film adaptation of Cassandra Clare's first installment "City of Bones," the same movie which you voted (overwhelmingly) to be summer 2013's most anticipated.
Even better, we'll be heading up to the Toronto set very shortly to get the goods on production from Cassie Clare herself - along with director Harald Zwart and the series' principle castmembers Lily Collins (Clary Fray), Jamie Campbell Bower (Jace Wayland), Robert Sheehan (Simon Lewis), Kevin Zegers (Alec Lightwood), Jemima West (Isabelle Lightwood) and Godfrey Gao (Magnus Bane) - and we'd love to hear what you'd like to know from the stars!

Based upon the urban fantasy series by Cassandra Clare, "City of Bones" stars Lily Collins as a Brooklyn teen who discovers she's a descendant of an ancient line of half-human, half-angel warriors tasked with protecting Earth from dark forces. Campbell Bower plays her love interest in the film, and the actress had plenty of accolades for her co-star when MTV News caught up with her at the Toronto International Film Festival recently, where she was supporting another film, "Writers."

Fans of Cassandra Clare's "The Mortal Instruments" series will agree that casting for the "City of Bones" movie has been one hellaciously long process. Consider this: The first actor announcement came down nearly two years ago.
However, as the spiffy new official movie website for "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" now shows, there are very few spaces left open on the casting roster. In fact, this week "The Tudors" star Jonathan Rhys Meyers might've nabbed the biggest opening left (he's reportedly in talks to star as Valentine Morgenstern, the brainy and sadistic arch-villain of the series).

We'd buy Jonathan Rhys Meyers as a half-angel. Probably a full-angel, too.
The "Tudors" star is spreading his wings as he's in talks to join the cast of "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones," according to Heat Vision.

The "Instruments" have claimed two new players.
Turner joins the production in the role of Luke Garroway, a calm and level-headed surrogate father figure of sorts to our heroine, Clary Fray. He also happens to be a ... well, we don't be the ones to give that away if you don't already know.
Pounder will be playing Madame Dorothea, Clary's crafty downstairs neighbor who moonlights as a storefront "Seeress and Prophetess," though her tarot cards and crystal balls serve as a front for the powerful position she actually does hold in the secret society of Downworlders. Get More »
