The Mortal Instruments has released several new images over the last few days. Today’s images, however, give us brand new insight into the world of the shadowhunters.

The images show various scenes from the film. Some of the most notable images are the ones with a shirtless Jace and then a different one with a shirtless Simon. We also get our first look at the steles as they will be used in the film. Jace is using his to create a rune on his arm. There is also the witchlight which Jace is holding in the image with Clary. There are so  many little details that we are seeing for the first time. The image of Clary in front of the portal is one of the coolest we have seen so far.

The images also give us a great look at the costumes. There is definitely a lot of leather and Clary’s thigh high leather boots are pretty insane. Are the costumes what you expected? Jace’s leather hoodie jacket is pretty cool but the verdict is still out on Alec’s leather jumpsuit.

What do you think of the latest images? Do the steles look like you imagined them?

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones release date is set for August 21.

    I’m just going to go into this movie and embrace small differences. With that in mind, I think this movie is going to be GREAT.

    That is looks NOTHING like the steles I imagined. On that note, the one in the movie makes more sense than the one in my head…so huh.

  • kim

    Jace isn’t cute. Mehhh.

      Thank you! Someone else who realizes the mistake of casting Jamie Campbell Bower as Jace. I really wish Alex Pettyfer hadn’t turned down the role.

      • Sheechiibii

        Alex looks like Jace, but I don’t think he’s half as good an actor as Jamie. I’m not going to diss casting before I’ve seen the movie :)

        • kim

          I don’t really think Jamie’s that gifted as an actor. I tried watching Camelot, to get used to him as Jace, and only walked away thinking he was horribly miscast as Arthur. He doesn’t sell badass, IMO. He just looks so wimpy. He looks even worse in all the TMI shots. Why is he so skinny? I didn’t picture Jace to look like this, but I’d get over it if I thought Jamie was the best actor alive, but he just isn’t. He’s average at best. I’d rather look at a pretty actor.

          • JacyFan

            you do know that Cassie clare herself chose jamie right? she even said ” told him it was my official blessing for being the best possible Jace.” and

            “I have seen his audition tape. They sent it to me because they were so impressed with it, and they wanted to get my feedback. People have been asking me what scene he filmed. The answer is a bunch of different scenes. He did scenes where he had to be funny. He did scenes where he had to be romantic. He did scenes where he had to be angry and badass and he pulled that all off amazingly…. I literally started crying because that was my Jace and Clary on the screen. And it’s an incredible feeling to see that even as an audition. This is amazing. He was snarky funny where he needed to be snarky funny, and he was badass where he needed to be badass. And he and Lily were incredible together”

            so yeah you can hate on him all you want but the creator loved him and thought him perfect so yeah– deal with it.

          • kim

            The creator would love anybody they cast and if she didn’t, she would never say so. They can’t say anything else. Besides, she knows a lot of the fandom doesn’t like him and is often trying to appease them. It doesn’t work for me. He’s just not Jace. He’s probably one of the worst casting choices I’ve seen from all these YA movies.

          • zara

            What I don’t understand is, why our opinion is automatically invalid just because CC loved him? She may be the creator but everybody imagined things differently and so did I. While writing, Cassandra Clare may have pictured jace to look exactly like Jamie. However, when I read the books, I pictured jace to look like the complete opposite of Jamie. Ms. Clare may have created the character but she still had her OWN unique image in her head just like I did. I’m tired of hearing “Cassandra Clare created jace, therefore she is right” argument and being shut down. We also have an opinion, albeit an unpopular one and fans need to learn to accept it.

          • Sheechiibii

            Because it’s one thing to say “he’s not how I pictured Jace” and another to say the film will be ruined because of it or that it was a mistake to cast him. Everybody has different imaginations like you say, so they can’t please everyone as far as looks are concerned.

          • zara

            Well, I don’t agree with that but fans should stop using the “Cassandra Clare loves him” defense to shut us down. People cann say they love Jamie as jace but we can”t say we dislike him? That is hardly fair.

          • Sheechiibii

            Of course you can say you dislike him, you don’t think he looks like Jace etc. But when people say he’s ruined the film when nobody has even seen it? That’s disrespectful not only to him as an actor but also to Cassandra Clare. The fact is Cassandra wasn’t talking about his appearance, she was talking about his character, and as she created his character, her version of him is what’s canon.

            So criticise his appearance, nobody is going to fit the imagination of every fan because we all envision him differently. But that’s totally different to saying it was a mistake to cast him and that he won’t play the role well. We haven’t seen the movie yet, and Jace is Cassandra Clare’s invention, she knows his character better than any of us. If she says he’s good then that’s really all we have to go on until we see him in action.

          • girlonfire12

            actually that makes me feel better. im always worried that the authors upset with the adaptation haha

      • girlonfire12

        YES YES YES!!!!! you are so right!!! i dont like jamie campbell bower at ALL! all i see is caius from twilight. alex pettyfer… WAY hotter. WAY better for jace.

        • http://kiradineen.com/ Kira Dineen

          Couldn’t have said it better myself.

          • Natile Pookiloo

            ugg i think jamie is a AWESOME Jace plus he is SO HOT

    • I<3Books

      Agreed, though I’m trying to withhold any judgement until I actually see the movie.

    • Glaciusx

      THANK YOU SO MUCH. I don’t get how everyone is fawning over him.

      • kim

        the only ones fawning over him are the fans on tumblr, really. Everywhere else I go thinks he’s so badly cast/ugly. Even people who hate CC/TMI think the film would’ve done better with a better looking lead

        • kay

          You do realize you can complain all you want but it’s not going to change . . . you sound like spoiled little brats. Just shut up.

  • Merina


    Jace is terrifyingly gorgeous. Wow. /Wow/.

  • Sheechiibii

    Wow. Jamie has a seriously sexy body in that image. Then again, I’ve always been a sucker for backs *swoons*.

    I didn’t imagine Stele’s to glow like that, I imagined them sort of chalky, like burned wood. I like it though. I think this is the first time we’ve properly seen Isabelle’s whip too! I was getting worried they hadn’t included it, but there it is. Along with a nice shot of nearly naked Simon *double swoon*. Now I’m just fangirling.

  • zara

    those runes look like they were drawn with sharpies.

    • Sheechiibii

      To be fair, how else were they supposed to look?

  • Mrs. Wayland

    Am I even still alive? After that shirtless pic. of Jamie, I’m sure I have to be dead. By the Angel he’s attractive. O.o

  • Lupita

    Oh Jace :D I am in love all over again!

  • Alaina

    I really like the costumes in the third image down. I assume it’s the four of them in their gear. If so, it looks a lot better there than I pictured it in my head while reading. It’s not the first time we’ve seen those costumes but the more I see them the more I like them. I like it. They look very classy but very intimidating too.

  • Nick D.

    So, showing a woman in underwear in Star Trek is a scandal, but a shirtless guy in a teenie mystery movie is news? Well done, hypable. Well done.

  • sarahd15

    Pretty excited for this movie! Although I wasn’t expected the runes to look so….huge/thick on their skin, I think I’m getting use to it now.

  • Deborah Esquivel

    Alec…. For the angel!!!! *.*

  • Gabbi

    Personally, I think the headline should have been- ‘including a shirtless Simon’ :P I’m still not thrilled with Clary’s appearence particularly (red hair, anybody?). That said, I am going to reserve any judgement on the actual potrayal of the characters until see the film.

  • Glaciusx

    Mmm….Alec and Clary just ooze pure hotness.

  • Grace Chen

    I think Jace’s super long leather coat thing is much more of a problem than Alex’s “leather pantsuit.”
    Lol, overload of leather!

  • girlonfire12

    im worried for this movie. excited, but worried. dont like jamie… hes just caius to me. not sure about jemima. kinda have a girl crush on lily collins. not up there with j law, but close hahaha

  • girlonfire12

    i feel like theyre making clary look hotter than isabelle. is that right? i think not.

  • Curiouslurker

    This movie must have the worst casting ever. It doesn’t leave me very optimistic about the end product.

  • sam26

    cant wait for the film. i am going to ignore the book changes for now and hope that there is not too many and that they do not destroy a fantastic book? With the next film out 2014 i hope they will learn from any comments from fans!

  • sam26

    is it me or did anyone else think the book was a lot like anime ‘bleach’? with this in mind i hope the film will be kick ass? ps: love the extended trailer and naked jace!

  • Marie

    I think Simon looks more attractive than Jace… Oh well. :D

  • Isabella

    Jace is so hot!like fire! Steamy!
