A new trailer has been released for Mortal Engines, based on Philip Reeve's sci-fi fantasy novels. IndieWire reported that after working under Peter Jackson for decades, Christian Rivers is making his directorial debut with this film, for which Jackson co-wrote the screenplay. Robert Sheehan, Hera Hilmar, Hugo Weaving and Jihae star.
In a taped introduction to the footage that played during Universal's CinemaCon presentation in April, Jackson said the film is "set on a future earth, and visually, it'll be like nothing you've ever seen before. Mortal Engines is a wild ride with a very human story at its heart." Universal will release the movie on December 14.
