Enter the world of tomorrow in a new 'Mortal Engines' featurette

Prepare yourself for a journey set hundreds of years in the future, long after human civilization was destroyed by a cataclysmic event. Welcome to the world of “Mortal Engines,” based on the acclaimed book series by Philip Reeves. Today, Universal Pictures has released an extended look at the big screen adaptation that will hit theaters next month.

humankind has adapted into a new way of living. 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” also stars Hugo Weaving, Jihae, Ronan Raftery, Leila George, Patrick Malahide and Stephen Lang.

Directed by Academy Award-winning visual effects artist Christian Rivers (“King Kong”), “Mortal Engines” is scripted by Peter Jackson, Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens. Producers include 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.

“Mortal Engines” opens theaters December 14, 2018.
