The first still from THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES has arrived.
EW.com shared a First Look at Lily Collins as Clary Fray “fending off an enemy with the first rune that she’s ever drawn on herself at the amazement of the other Shadowhunters.”
Here, Clary brandishes one of her self-created runes — the magical symbols Shadowhunters use to protect themselves. “Clary has the ability to both create new symbols and make runes that are stronger than other people’s. In this scene, she is fending off an enemy with the first rune that she’s ever drawn on herself at the amazement of the other Shadowhunters,” Clare said. “It was very reassuring to come on set and see everything covered in runes and replicated down to the last detail. The movie was definitely made by people who love the books and wanted to do right by them.”
Look out for this still–and an interview with Cassandra Clare–in this week’s Entertainment Weekly, on stands Friday.
The teaser trailer for the film (due out August 23, 2013) premieres on Thursday (Nov. 15) on Entertainment Tonight before debuting online at MTV.com at 10:30 PM EST.
It will also run in front of screenings of Breaking Dawn Part 2.
