First Official Teaser Trailer for Peter Jackson-Penned YA Dystopias MORTAL ENGINES

MORTAL ENGINES is an upcoming 2018 science fiction action adventure film directed by Oscar-winning visual-effects artist Christian Rivers (King Kong). Joining Rivers are The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogies filmmakers Peter Jackson, Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens, who have penned the screenplay. It is based on the novel of the same name by Philip Reeve, set in a post-apocalyptic steampunk world.

Thousands of years after civilization was destroyed by a cataclysmic event, humankind has adapted and a new way of living has evolved. Gigantic moving cities now roam the Earth, ruthlessly preying upon smaller traction towns. Tom Natsworthy (Robert Sheehan)—who hails from a Lower Tier of the great traction city of London—finds himself fighting for his own survival after he encounters the dangerous fugitive Hester Shaw (Hera Hilmar). Two opposites, whose paths should never have crossed, forge an unlikely alliance that is destined to change the course of the future.

Hugo Weaving, Jihae, Leila George, Ronan Raftery, and Stephen Lang also star in the film.
