We are less than a year away from the theatrical release of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones and the hype for the adaptation of the internationally best selling series by Cassandra Clare will only continue to grow as the release draws nearer.
I’ve banded together with other Mortal Instruments fansites (TMI Source, Mundie Moms,TMI Examiner and TMI News en Espanol) for a weekly feature called Movie Monday.
Each Monday leading up to the August 23, 2013, release of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, we will take a look at a scene, moment, detail, etc. and give our opinions on how we think it will be interpreted in the big screen adaptation.
Amber, TMI Institute: We all know how important it was to Cassie to have the relationship between Magnus and Alec preserved for the big screen. It was one of those sticking points she held her ground with and fortunately the studio was absolutely fine with the relationship being a part of the storyline. In the books we only see the first inkling of a spark between Malec in City of Bones. Alec’s sexual preference is something he keeps secret, and honestly it’s something I think he is scared to admit to himself. Magnus is very open about his orientation and flirts a bit with Alec.
I’m not sure yet just how far along they will progress a relationship between Alec and Magnus for the first movie. I’d assume it will progess throughout the franchise. Since an important plot in the film is Alec’s jealousy of the blossoming relationship between Jace and Clary, I’m thinking that most of the movie will be more focused on Alec defining his feelings for Jace. However, I am very interested to see if there will be a sweet Malec moment by the end of the movie. I think everyone will fall in love with this couple and will crave more Malec for City of Ashes.
