Universal releases new TV trailer for upcoming apocalypse-related Sci-Fi film 'Mortal Engines'
'Mortal Engines' is a new epic adventure directed by Oscar-winning visual-effects artist Christian Rivers and stars Hugo Weaving, Hera Hilmar and Robert Sheehan
New TV trailer for sci-fi movie 'Mortal Engines' starring Hera Hilmar is out before the film hits theaters on December 14. Universal has debuted a new 90-second, "extended" TV trailer which will be the third trailer of the film based on a popular book series depicting an apocalyptic world of giant roving cities.
Hundreds of years after civilization was destroyed by a cataclysmic event, a mysterious young woman, Hester Shaw (Hilmar), emerges as the only one who can stop London — now a giant, predator city on wheels — from devouring everything in its path. Feral, and fiercely driven by the memory of her mother, Hester joins forces with Tom Natsworthy (Robert Sheehan), an outcast from London, along with Anna Fang (Jihae), a dangerous outlaw with a bounty on her head.
'Mortal Engines' is a new epic adventure directed by Oscar-winning visual-effects artist Christian Rivers (King Kong). Joining Rivers are 'The Hobbit' and 'The Lord of the Rings' trilogies' three-time Academy Award-winning filmmakers Peter Jackson, Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens, who have penned the screenplay. Visual effects are created by a Weta Digital team led by Ken McGaugh, Kevin Smith, Luke Millar and Dennis Yoo. The Universal and MRC adaptation is from the award-winning book series by Philip Reeve, published in 2001 by Scholastic.
On board as producers are Zane Weiner (The Hobbit trilogy), Amanda Walker (The Hobbit trilogy) and Deborah Forte (Goosebumps), as well as Walsh and Jackson. Ken Kamins (The Hobbit trilogy) joins Boyens as executive producer.
