The new theatrical trailer was shown too, as promised, and from those present we know that the new scenes – apart from the glimpses we’ve seen – also include Clary getting the phone-call from her mother, Jocelyn Fairchild and returning home. We also see Magnus Bane and the vampire-werewolves showdown with Simon Lewis commenting in his usual snarkiness. Then there’s the Garden scene, demons and Luke Greyback. iO9 has a very spoiler-y description of the trailer frame-by-frame, which, if you can’t wait, read here.
