When you think of Peter Jackson – The Hobbit comes to mind immediately. But there is so much more to Peter Jackson than being a director and we’re about it.
The trailer for his upcoming movie, Mortal Engines, has been released, along with an official 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.
Now, we admit that we took interest in this partially because it has Robert Sheehan and hey – he was the original Simon in The Mortal Instruments movie adaptation.
Mortal Engines was directed by Christopher Rivers and produced by Jackson. Mortal Engines is due out on December 14, 2018.
