The studio planed for this to be a large franchise like The Hunger Games (2012) or Twilight (2008), but due to poor box office, critical reception and fans of the books being disappointed, the idea was scrapped and it was decided for the story to be rebooted for a television series. See more »

Why can I see you and no one else can?
You're not a mundane.
What is a mundane?
Someone from the human world.
Well, if I'm not human, than what am I?
You wouldn't believe me if I told you.
[Clary's phone rings]
Mom! I'm coming home!
No, no, no, you can't come home. You understand me? You don't come home.

I went to see this movie the other day and since I'm a big fan of the books I was all so excited to actually be able to see my fantasy on the big screen. But as the movie started playing everything went down the hill. They have changed basic dates which play a big part in the whole story since certain events happen at specific time and they actually change the whole story. With the exception of the funny poetry scene with Erik everything else was.. how can I put it politely? Bad. I couldn't even understand the feelings the characters were supposed to be feeling before they were spoken out loud. In the books there is a certain motive, communication-battle- communication-adventure, so you're able to understand what's going on. But in the movie you just don't get it. The movie itself is a spoiler, it gives way too much information which is supposed to stay hidden because it makes the upcoming story more interesting and breathtaking.
In conclusion, I really think that the books had good potential for becoming a movie without changing everything, which unfortunately happened.
(Read the books, they are amazing. and skip the movie)
Dear Hollywood, make a remake.
