Peep EXCLUSIVE ‘Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones’ Poster!

Today is anything but just another mundane Monday, because look what we have: the final one-sheet for the highly anticipated “Mortal Instruments: City of Bones” adaptation, based on the best-selling novel by Cassandra Clare! And this is one dark and sexy bit of marketing collateral, to be sure.

Set against the tumultous backdrop of the New York City skyline rise our heroes (from right to left): Clary Fray (Lily Collins), Jace Wayland (Jamie Campbell Bower), Alec Lightwood (Kevin Zegers), Isabelle Lightwood (Jemima West) and Simon Lewis (Robert Sheehan), who according to the accompanying tagline are among the “chosen.” And that swooping symbol behind them? Well, that’s a rune—and a hint at Clary’s covetable powers.

“I actually saw a lot of similarities between Clary and I,” Lily told MTV News earlier this year of her Brooklyn teen alter ego. “She’s a go-getter. She’s feisty. She fights for what she believes in, and I really associate a lot of her qualities with mine, but I also wanted to bring this realness to her, like she was just the girl next door, because I didn’t want her to be this caricature of a fan-favorite heroine in a book. I wanted her to be someone you could be friends with next door.”

“The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones” hits theaters August 21.
