It is definitely this year's most anticipated movie! Earlier last winter I showed you the teaser for Peter Jackson's MORTAL ENGINES and now we finally
The Engines will roll this December!
have the exciting trailer and poster for the fantasy extravaganza which will tumble into cinemas around the world December 14th ahead of Christmas Holidays! As you know the movie is the big screen adaptation of Philip Reeve's super popular novel saga which is finally getting its film version.
 
MORTAL ENGINES has the story set thousands of years after civilization was destroyed by a cataclysmic event, and humankind has adapted and a new way of living. Gigantic moving cities now roam the Earth, ruthlessly preying upon smaller traction towns on which they feed upon as they need the supplies and metal to keep on moving. Tom Natsworthy (Robert Sheehan), who hails from a Lower Tier of the great traction city of
Tom and Hester begin their adventure in the track holes left behind London
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.
WHO IS IN THE CAST?
The main villain is Hugo Weaving who plays Thaddeus Valentine, London's chief historian and explorer who actually hides a dark secret: he is looking for a deadly weapon that would give London power upon all other cities.
Coming to rescue Tom and Hester after they fall out of London is Jihae as Anna Fang (above) who will take them with her flying ship to Airhaven, a city floating above clouds. Leifur Sigurdarson (above) plays another flying captain Nils Lindstrom who also helps them.
The cast also includes one of our fave Irish boys Ronan Raftery as another London apprentice Bevis Pod, Leila George as his love Katherine Valentine, Thaddeus' daughter! Patrick Malahide is the ruler of London evil Magnus Crome while Stephen Lang plays robotic soldier Shrike.

  2. Kind of reminds me of Maze Runner. I'm not sure I'm loving this one, but will file it away for a rainy day.

  5. Looks cool. We'll have to see. I'm always a skeptic when it comes to big productions until they're out.
