Home News From The 'Verse Trailer: Peter Jackson’s epic adventure MORTAL ENGINES gets a new trailer and...

Universal Pictures today released a new trailer and poster for their upcoming movie MORTAL ENGINES based on the novel of the same name by PHILIP REEVE. The epic adventure is from director Peter Jackson, and stars Hugo Weaving, Hera Hilmar, ROBERT SHEEHAN, Jihae, RONAN RAFERTY, Leila George, PATRICK MALAHIDE, and Stephen Lang.

Being that the movie comes out in December, and Peter Jackson is a fan of promoting his projects at San Diego Comic-Con, this movie could show up for a panel this July. If it does, we should know in a few weeks as more and more news from the convention is released.

Official synopsis is as follows: “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.”

More information as well as the trailer and stills from the movie are courtesy of their press release.
