'Mortal Instruments' Sequel Scrapped, Series Heading To TV Instead

'Mortal Instruments' Sequel Scrapped, Series Heading To TV Inste
Instead of a big-screen sequel to "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones," movie execs are opting to make a TV series about the fantasy series.

The film, based on the book series of the same name, flopped when it was released in 2013. It made just over $100 million worldwide, not even breaking even with its production costs.

Although it was announced late last year that a big-screen sequel was in the works, plans have changed.

Constantin Film's head of film and TV, Martin Moszkowicz, told The Hollywood Reporter they cancelled plans for another film and instead will bring author Cassandra...

The Ten Worst Movies Of 2013

12/24/2013 12:00pm EST
What makes a bad film? Factors such as poor ticket sales, bad acting, lousy scripts, and negative reviews. And if you've never even heard of the movie, than you know it's really bad.

Some of these films actually had decent box office results, but that doesn't mean they were good films. It just means a bunch of people got suckered into watching movies they thought would be entertaining but ended up being lousy.

"Getaway" (above) starred Selena Gomez, one of today's hottest young female singers and actresses. But her star power couldn't save the film.

The movie centered on Brent (Ethan Haw...

Mortal Instruments: City of Bones
Clary Fray (Lily Collins) is a seemingly ordinary New York teenager who discovers that she is the descendant of a line of Shadowhunters, a secret cadre of young half-angel warriors locked in an ancient battle to protect our world from demons.

When her mother disappears, Clary joins forces with some Shadowhunters who introduce her to a dangerous alternate part of New York called Downworld that is filled with demons, warlocks, vampires, werewolves and other deadly creatures.

Our Starpulse critic found the film "silly but entertaining," especially for its targeted young teenage audience. Vie...

'Butler', One Direction Top Box Office, But Spanish-Language 'Instructions Not Included' Is The Real Winner

Instructions Not Included
Lee Daniels' The Butler held off competition from boy band One Direction's concert movie, One Direction: This Is Us, to top the four day Labor Day weekend box office.

"The Butler" grossed $20 million, edging out director Morgan Spurlock's music documentary, which came in second at $18 million.

"This Is Us" did win the weekend box office, though, pulling in $1 million more than "The Butler" for a $15.8 million take.

Comedy We're the Millers finished third on both charts, taking in nearly $16 million for the holiday weekend, and $12.6 million over the three-day weekend.

But the big surpri...

'The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones' is Silly, but Highly Entertaining

Image from set
At first glance, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones might look like just another studio’s attempt to launch their own Twilight or Hunger Games franchise, and it probably is, but then the complex love story with a twist  would be missed. Spoiler Alert! Think Star Wars bombshell.

Yes, the film does have over melodramatic parts with dialog that seems at times to grow sillier by the second. Mix that together with some bad teenage acting (sorry Lily) that might make you think this is just a knockoff set to the age-old battle between the forces of good and evil. To round out the dark side an...

'The Butler' Tops Box Office For Second Straight Weekend

Lee Daniels The Butler
"Lee Daniels' The Butler" once again topped the weekend box office with takings of $17 million.

The film is inspired by a true story and centers on a White House butler (Forest Whitaker) who served seven American presidents over three decades.

It focuses heavily on the dramatic changes that swept America over 30 years, from the civil rights movement to Vietnam and beyond, and how those changes affected the butler's life and family.

The film easily beat the number-two movie of the weekend, comedy "We're The Millers," which earned $13.5 million.

Both films beat last week's new release, "T...

5 Fun Facts: 'The Mortal Instruments' Star Lily Collins

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones
If you haven’t been watching TV, you’ve probably missed the ample TV time dedicated to the “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones” film trailer. But we can’t blame the production company for throwing the trailer at us like a bunch of fast punches to the head. They must have known that the film would not do as well as the likes of “Twilight” so they tried to throw it in our faces hoping to annoy us all the way to “Can I get a ticket for the 6pm show to Mortal Instruments?.”

The movie, semi-seemingly exciting with a bunch of no names or newbies, was recently released to some terrible reviews...

Box Office Predictions: What A Slow Weekend Ahead…

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones
1) The Butler- 16M Weekend, 45M Weekend

City Of Bones is tracking soft, and The Butler was a crowd pleaser last weekend. It is likely that a small drop will keep The Butler in 1st place again this weekend.

2) The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones- 15M weekend, 20M Total

Soft tracking. I think The Butler and Mortal Instruments will be close, but if this was really a big franchise starter like it has been billed, it should be winning by a landslide.

3) You’re Next- 14M Weekend, 14M Total

A well reviewed horror film yes, but a no-name cast. It could break through this weekend, considering...
