MTV’s Hollywood Crush compiled a list of five scenes from City of Bones that they’d like to see in the film adaptation (in theaters August 23, 2013).
At the beginning of the novel, Clary Fray and her best friend, Simon, head out to Pandemonium, where the story really begins. It’s where Clary first meets Shadowhunters Jace, Alec and Isabelle, and realizes she can see things other humans cannot. When Simon and Clary first arrive at the club, she describes the colorful characters she sees. What she doesn’t realize is the club is filled with Downworlders — vampires, werewolves and faeries. Since we don’t meet these otherworldly figures until later on, we’re hoping the director and screenwriters show previews of the characters for us “Mortal Instruments” veterans.
Magnus Bane’s Party
Magnus Bane, the High Warlock of Brooklyn, is an extremely fascinating character. In the books he’s described as wearing glitter, vibrant nail polish and lipstick, sparkly belt buckles, and rainbow leather pants. We imagine the parties he throws for Shadowhunters and Downworlders are no match for any party we’ve ever been to — and we can’t wait to attend.
Vampire Coven’s Hotel
It doesn’t look like we’ll get away from this vampire trend anytime soon, and that’s completely fine by us. When Simon is accidentally turned into a rodent and taken to a vampire coven’s hotel, Jace and Clary head there to rescue him — only to find themselves surrounded by the thirsty undead. It’ll be interesting to see vampire headquarters different from the Cullen-style luxury we’re used to in “Twilight.”
The Greenhouse Kiss
While it’s clear the very lovable Simon has a crush on Clary, we can’t help but root for her and Jace. This is the first kiss between the pair. It takes place in a greenhouse that Jace shows her after dinner. The romantics in us can’t wait to see how it translates onto the screen!
Epic Battle Between Forsaken and Wolf Pack
First let us explain that Luke is Clary’s father-figure due to his friendship with Clary’s mother. Clary finds out Luke is also a werewolf. After Jace is taken by Valentine — who turns out to be his and Clary’s father — Clary and Luke seek to rescue Jace with the help of Luke’s werewolf pack. As they reach Valentine’s lair, they’re assaulted by an army of Forsaken. Forsaken are humans without any Shadowhunter blood, who are marked with a Shadowhunter rune. They become lethal killers for whomever marks them and don’t sleep or eat unless they’re told. The epic battle should prove to be an amazing action sequence for the film if done correctly.
I think it’s safe to say that all five of these scenes will make it in the movie.
We already know that the greenhouse kiss is in the script (thanks to screenwriter Marlene King) and scenes like Magnus’ party, Hotel Dumort and the final battle are key parts to moving the story along.
And Pandemonium…that’s where the story begins. There’s no way they can leave that out.
Which of those five scenes are you most eager to see play out on the big screen?
