Fans of “The Mortal Instruments,” the best-selling young adult fantasy series, have been feverish for any information ever since they heard about the highly anticipated book-to-movie adaptation. Lucky for them, new stills of young actors Robert Sheehan and Jemima West have been released.
“The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones,” the first film in what may become a franchise, follows Lily Collins as teenager Clary Fray, who is unknowingly pulled into an ancient battle to protect our world from demons when her mother (Lena Headey) mysteriously disappears. Clary must then join forces with a group of Shadowhunters, a secret race of half-angel warriors tasked to protect humanity, and learns there’s more to New York City and her own past than she thought.
Irish expat Robert Sheehan plays Simon Lewis, Clary’s best friend who is secretly in love with her. (Too bad Clary is about to fall for one of the Shadowhunters.) The still can be viewed below, thanks to Teen.com.
Jemima West stars as Isabelle Lightwood, one of the bad-ass Shadowhunters helping Clary. (Though she looks particularly worried). This still can also be viewed below, thanks to Collider.
The film is directed by Harald Zwart and also stars Jamie Campbell Bower, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Kevin Durand, CCH Pounder and Kevin Zegers. It will be released on August 23, 2013.

All her co-stars are branching out to the big screen after finding massive success on HBO, and now sixteen year old “Game of Thrones” star Sophie Turner is set to make her feature film debut as well. The Daily Mail reports Turner is in negotiations to star in indie thriller “Panda Eyes” opposite Jonathan Rhys Meyers.
Spanish director Isabel Coixet will helm the adaptation of Catherine MacPhail’s novel “Another Me”, with cameras rolling beginning on November 25th in Cardiff. Turner will play Fay, a high school student who becomes embroiled with a doppelganger attempting to take over her life.
Though she joined a local theatre group at the age of three and has wanted to be an actress her whole life, playing fan favorite Sansa Stark on HBO’s critical and commercial hit “Game of Thrones” thus far marks Turner’s first and only professional gig. Not a bad place to start.

Mia Wasikowska, Aaron Johnson, Jonathan Rhys Meyers and five-time Academy Award nominee Glenn Close star in this first trailer for Albert Nobbs, directed by Rodrigo García.
As well as starring in, Close co-wrote and produced the film, which follows a woman who must pretend to be a man in order to live her life independently in 19th century Ireland, as she works at one of Dublin’s top hotels, with plans to open her own shop.
The film is receiving awards buzz, particularly for Close, who has yet to win the covered Oscar. The Academy does like to honour women who transform themselves in to men on screen (see: Gwyneth Paltrow in Shakespeare in love, Hilary Swank in Boys Don’t Cry) and this first trailer suggests to us why the film received such great reviews at this year’s Telluride Film Festival and Toronto International Film Festival.
Albert Nobbs hits screen in early December and below we have a full size poster and the trailer.
