With one day to go until the release of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones‘ first trailer, Sony has released the first official photo from the film!

Unveiled by Entertainment Weekly, we see lead character Clary “brandishing one of her self-created runes.” Cassandra Clare spoke about the still, saying “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. 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.”

We’ll be sure to share the teaser trailer with you as soon as it makes its online debut tomorrow. It will also be attached to The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 in theaters beginning Friday. Hypable visited the set of the film a couple months ago and will eventually be able to share a detailed report of what we saw on site.

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones opens in United States theaters on August 23, 2013.

    This is the best picture they could get! Her expression looks so vacant. It makes me nervous that she will not be good as Clary.

    But I thought she didn’t discover she could create the runes until the second book!

    Outside of that, everything looks great so far!

      I thought that too. Guess I’ll have to go back and check.

      Nope, she doesn’t create runes till CoA! First rune she creates herself is, I believe, Fearless for the Sealie Queen. Then puts in on Jace for the battle at the end.

      It’s kinda annoying considering that’s quite a crucial plot line to be introducing it early…

    It’s true she doesn’t discover her ability to create runes until the second book, but she does create this rune herself, but in her sleep, so she doesn’t know she did it. She dreamt her mother gave it to her. But i understood the rune would be on her arm, not her hand.
