When Peter Jackson is involved in a movie, you know it’s going to be epic and we’re pretty excited by the first image from his latest Mortal Engines.
The image, arriving before the full trailer is due to drop, shows one of the gigantic moving cities from the film. Take a look at the image in full below:
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 is directed by Oscar-winning visual-effects artist Christian Rivers (King Kong) from a screenplay by Peter Jackson, Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens. It is based on the award-winning book series by Philip Reeve.
The all-star cast for the movie includes Hugo Weaving, Hera Hilmar, Robert Sheehan, Jihae, Ronan Raftery, Patrick Melahide, Stephen Lang and Leila George. Mortal Engines is produced by Zane Weiner (The Hobbit trilogy), Amanda Walker (The Hobbit trilogy) and Deborah Forte (Goosebumps), as well as Walsh and Jackson, with Ken Kamins (The Hobbit trilogy) and Boyens as executive producers.
Mortal Engines will arrive in UK cinemas on December 14th 2018 with the full trailer expected soon.
