Must List

Mortal Instruments scenes we can't wait to see on the big screen


The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones is hitting theaters this Wednesday, Aug. 21, but for fans of Cassandra Clare’s page-turner series, the film can’t premier soon enough. 

While movies often differ from their book predecessors, there are a number of scenes we hope made the final cut of this book-turned-movie. Of course, the club scene in Pandemonium where Clary witnesses the shadowhunter world is a must—and we know it’s included because of the sneak peek in the trailer. Check it out below…

But there are a few other scenes we’re eager to see making the movie cut. Read on for our list Just be warned—If you haven’t read the book, this post is full of possible spoilers!

Clary’s Shadowhunter intro

We want to see Lily Collin’s take on this eye-opening, mind-blowing moment as shadowhunters teach Clary about what a mundane is, realizing she isn’t a regular teen.

The Greenhouse scene

Jace shows Clary the flowers that bloom every night at midnight and gives her a witchlight moonstone for her 16th birthday. As much as we’re excited about the potential romance, we really want to see the special flower effects in action.

Magnus Bane’s party

Even though he doesn’t come across as the friendliest people person (seriously, ask his cat named Chairman Meow), Magnus throws one over-the-top party. Who doesn’t like a celebratory scene?

Clary and Jace’s kiss

Although this moment is long awaited, Clary and Jace’s relationship is nothing short of stubborn. These two are always in an argument! We love that this scene balances out their sarcastic convos.

Simon saving the day

Every book (and film) needs an ultimate underdog moment. We want to see Clary’s bestie take on the evil forces toward the end.

Alec and Clary’s fight

While we’re not encouraging violence, this fight opens up new doors for Alec and Clary while Jace and Simon recover from injuries. We want to see these two characters speak their mind.

Clary, Jace and Valentine’s grand finale

While the set design for Valentine’s lair is bound to be incredible, we’re also excited for the scene’s drama as the two teens come to terms with their new identities. Thought you had relationship problems? Think again!
