Universal Pictures has released a new featurette and poster for the upcoming Peter Jackson-produced fantasy adventure “Mortal Engines” with this clip putting the focus on lead character Hester Shaw (Hera Hilmar).
Set 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 finds himself fighting for his own survival after he encounters the dangerous fugitive Hester.
Two opposites, whose paths should never have crossed, forge an unlikely alliance that is destined to change the course of the future. Hugo Weaving, Jihae, Leila George, Patrick Malahide and Stephen Lang co-star.
Jackson, Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens co-wrote the screenplay based on Philip Reeve’s novel series. Christian Rivers directs. “Mortal Engines” will hit cinemas on December 14th.
