If you’ve been dying to see more of Peter Jackson‘s ‘Mortal Engines‘ you have reason to rejoice with this look at character posters for the film as well as the release of the second trailer! This isn’t quite the first 25-minutes which were screened at this year’s New York Comic-Con, but it does feel like a better tease for the film compared to the first trailer. This trailer also makes it feel like there is a potential for more of Philip Reeve’s series to be adapted into other feature films if this one ends up being a hit.
In ‘Mortal Engines’ we’re shown a world that has taken place after the “Sixty Minute War” that has turned the world into a post-apocalyptic wasteland where cities now drive across the barren planet in search of resources to keep what is left of humanity alive.
Jackson recently shared that showing the scope of these cities was the most difficult part of crafting this film and it is clear that by the time it went into post-production that they figured out how to bring this to the big screen.
You can check out the second trailer right here!
As to the character posters, these feature the heroes and villains of this new series which could potentially spawn a new trilogy if Jackson’s previous work is any indication.
Are you looking forward to ‘Mortal Engines’ rolling onto the big screen later this year? Do you think that the series has the kind of potential to draw crowds in the way that ‘Lord of the Rings’ did? Share your thoughts in the comments 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’ will roll into your local theater on December 14th, 2018!
