Universal Pictures has released the first trailer from their upcoming Mortal Engines, set to release in December of 2018!
Following the conclusion of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogies, three-time Academy Award®-winning filmmakers Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh return to the screen with a startling and sweeping new vision of a future where Earth’s cities now roam the globe on huge wheels, battling each other in a struggle for ever-diminishing resources.
Jackson and Walsh co-wrote the screenplay with their fellow Oscar®-winning collaborator, Mortal Engines executive producer Philippa Boyens, with whom they crafted The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogies. Zane Weiner (The Hobbit series), Amanda Walker (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey) and Deborah Forte (Goosebumps) also produce, while Ken Kamins (The Hobbit series) joins Boyens as executive producer. Universal will distribute the film worldwide.
