Pictures: Closeup Shots of THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS' Supernatural Characters + Talk About The Make-up

Silent Brother Practical Make-up
Make-Up Artist Magazine features the supernatural characters make-up in The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. They show how the practical make-up is rooted from the concept design.
The film’s physical creatures were built by make-up effects veteran Paul Jones (Silent Hill, Defiance), with designs contributed by concept artist Martin Mercer. Unlike other genre projects, where the monsters have a much more obvious presence, the challenge on this film was to create a range of supernatural characters that may not be as obvious at first. “There’s a great scene where Clary goes to Magnus Bane’s house [where there’s] a party,” explains Jones, “and I would say about 70 percent of the guests are human and the other 30 percent are human-ish, so they all have something slightly off about them.
“One guy has a golden face with African tribal scars on his face, but his face is a luminescent gold, while another girl has cat eyes that you don’t really notice at first until she opens her eyes wide at the camera, so in terms of our prosthetics, everything was scaled right down to be very subtle. We found people that were interesting already and basically enhanced their natural features, rather than taking somebody average or attractive and turning them into a monster.”
Jones worked directly with Mercer to create the creatures. “Martin is very fast,” Jones notes, “so I was able to run the shop but not have to sit down at my laptop and design for a day. Martin would come to me and I would act like an art director and say, ‘OK, that wrinkle is great—make it a bit longer and bring the cheekbones out more, darken down this part of the rune, make the teeth a little longer.’
Silent Brother Concept Design

“Four or five hours later the design would be done and get sent off to production designer François Séguin, and from a practical point of view, I wouldn’t have any problem building anything in the design. When you are given a design by somebody else, it can be tricky sometimes, because they don’t understand what we do or the limitations we have from a prosthetic point of view. Because I understood the characters in this world and where they lived, we were able to simply carry on with what we were doing.”

Make sure you see the movie this opening week/end and let us know what you think by tweeting us @TMICanada using #TMIMovieReaction.

It's Finally the Release Day for THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES + Why You Must See It Opening Weekend

If you've been following our tweet for a while, you'll remember when we were first counting down to The Mortal Instruments movie and we still had 300+ days to go. Now, August 21 has arrived and The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones is out in theatres today!

If you're really, truly excited, you'll go see the movie tonight or sometime this weekend with no question! However, if you're thinking about waiting until the theater is less busy (next weekend or something), that is not a good idea!

Opening weekend (in this case Wednesday to Sunday) is very important for a movie. It basically determines if there will be a sequel to the movie. We all want to see The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes and possibly The Infernal Devices movies too, right? So if you're going to see the movie, see it this opening week/end! In fact, see it once with your friends and see it again with your parents (or another group of friends)!

I've seen the movie once, and this weekend I'll probably see it again in Imax! (Read our review here) Also, once you've seen the movie be sure to tweet us and use #TMIMovieReactions to let us know what you thought about The Mortal Instruments movie.

Thanks so much for visiting our site, following our tweets/tumblr posts, hopefully, we can countdown to another 5 more Mortal Instruments movies!

Find out What Element Makes THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS the Next Big Thing

Breitbart has a great article talking about how The Mortal Instruments captures the essential tween elements.
Built-in name recognition? Author Cassandra Clare has 12 million books in print domestically, including the first five in the Mortal Instruments series (the sixth book hits stores next year).
Tween-friendly content? The story boasts a love triangle brimming with angst along with a main character who learns disturbing things about her family tree.
Rising stars? Lily Collins, daughter of rocker Phil Collins, is making waves with movies likeMirror, Mirror and The Blind Side on her resume. Co-star Jamie Campbell Bower formerly appeared in the Twilight franchise and dated Collins for a spell--shades of the Kristen Stewart/Robert Pattinson real-life romance.
Nothing is preordained in Hollywood, but The Mortal Instruments has the proverbial deck stacked in its favor. It's no accident than a second film in the budding franchise is already slated for a 2014 production.
Go check out the rest of the article at Breitbart.

2 Non-spoiler Reviews of 'THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES' Movie

We were so lucky to get 2 TMICanada bloggers at The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones Toronto premiere on Thursday night. So, here we are going to feature two opinions on The Mortal Instruments movie.

Celine's Review

This year, out of all the book adaptions I've watch (or tried to watch), I would have to say The Mortal Instruments is the best one. So many fans have been worried about The Mortal Instruments movie becoming another box-office miss like The Host, Beautiful Creatures, and Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters. After watching the movie, I genuinely believe The Mortal Instruments will become the next big franchise. And in the highly unlikely chance that it will not, I'm sure the fans of the series will enjoy the movie.

Unfortunately if you are a huge Godfrey Gao fan, it did sound like they dubbed (or edited) his voice so that there was no accent in his English. If you followed the pictures and news during the filming of The Mortal Instruments or if you live in the GTA, you can tell that the streets are not in New York. In addition, a BMO showed up in one of the shots, but hey, who cares?

After you watch the movie, you should watch the behind the scenes videos because you will appreciate the stunts the actors did (own their own) even more. When Lily Collins said this movie was a mix of action, comedy, love and just about everything, she was telling the truth. Has some hilarious lines! The comedy from the book does present itself throughout the movie. After watching the movie once, I want to go and watch it again in IMAX so that there is more Mortal Instruments on the big screen!

Olivia's Review

I should start off by saying that this movie was well worth the 5 year wait from when I first started reading these books. Harald Zwart and the whole TMI team did an awesome job in making this book into a great movie.
There are 3 things that I learned while watching this movie:
  1. Jamie is Jace!! If after watching this movie you still think that someone could play the character of Jace better than Jamie Campbell Bower, I will argue you to the death. He brought all of those components of everyone’s favourite character to life, being that sarcastic teenager with his hidden agony from his past. So from us here at TMI Canada, GREAT JOB JAMIE!
  2. This is, hands down, the best book-to-movie adaptation I have seen in a very long time. Twilight, The Hunger Games, The Host, Percy Jackson—I’ve seen and read them all, and none of them come even close  to The Mortal Instruments in terms of books-to-movies. The best thing about this movie was that they made very little changes to the plot of the movie from the book—everything was spot on and correct. There was one scene that they did change for the purpose of having the scene run on for too long, but other than that, the movie and the book were completely similar.
  3. We have the greatest fandom in the world. The atmosphere in the theatre was amazing! These shadowhunters were very passionate about this film and book series, and it was great being in a room where everybody had the same reaction to everything (WARNING: be prepared for massive screams when the Clace kiss comes on screen). Our fans are awesome!
Of course, there was the downside of having Godfrey’s voice dubbed over, but don’t worry…you get over  hat very quickly once you see him in action. On that note, all the actors did an awesome job portraying these characters from this awesome book. Lily, Jamie, Kevin, Jemima, Robbie…congratulations on doing such a fantastic job! This movie has made me so excited for City of Ashes…I just can’t contain myself.

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones hits theatres August 21, tweet us @TMICanada and let us know if you enjoyed the movie as much as we did!
