Mortal Engines Clip Makes Case For Sequels

Trying to run before it walks, Universal Pictures has released a new featurette for their “Mortal Engines” film with writers and executive producers Peter Jackson and Philippa Boyens talking about how the film is planned to be very much the first of an epic sci-fi fantasy saga.

Set thousands of years after civilization was destroyed by a cataclysmic event, humankind has adapted with gigantic moving cities now roaming the Earth, ruthlessly preying upon smaller traction towns.

Tom Natsworthy (Robert Sheehan) finds himself fighting for his own survival after he encounters the dangerous fugitive Hester Shaw (Hera Hilmar). Hugo Weaving, Jihae, Ronan Raftery, Leila George, Patrick Malahide and Stephen Lang co-star in the film which opens December 14th.
