We now know how long The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones is! It is approximately 130 minutes, or 129m 49s, to be exact. The British Board of Film Classification posted this news this morning, along with the news that the film will be classified as “12A” in the UK, for “moderate violence and threat.” They also reveal that the movie was passed uncut, meaning that Sony didn’t have to remove anything from the film to keep it at the rating they wanted.

The film, based on the novel by Cassandra Clare, hits theaters on August 21st in the USA, and the 23rd in the UK. It was directed by Harald Zwart, and stars Lily Collins, Jamie Campbell Bower, Robbie Sheehan, Kevin Zegers, Jemima West, Lena Heady, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, and Jared Harris.
