Peter Jackson‘s latest film Mortal Engines looks visually stunning! It’s based on the Philip Reeve post-apocalyptic novel that imagines a world with few resources where cities now reside on mobile vehicles. it is a weird mix between Mad Max and Howl’s Moving Castle, and everything looks good in the trailer, I like the idea of London on wheels. It is going to be one insane ride and I am so excited to watch it.
Mortal Engines stars Robert Sheehan, Hera Hilmar, Hugo Weaving, Jihae, Leila George, Ronan Raftery, and Stephen Lang, and this is the synopsis:
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.
Mortal Engines hits theaters December 14, 2018.
