Welcome to the age of predator cities. Peter Jackson presents #MortalEngines, in theaters December 14. -- Facebook: Twitter: Instagram: Site: -- Hundreds of years after civilization was destroyed by a cataclysmic event, a mysterious young woman, Hester Shaw (Hera Hilmar), emerges as the only one who can stop London — now a giant, predator city on wheels — from devouring everything in its path. Feral, and fiercely driven by the memory of her mother, Hester joins forces with Tom Natsworthy (Robert Sheehan), an outcast from London, along with Anna Fang (Jihae), a dangerous outlaw with a bounty on her head. Mortal Engines is the startling, new epic adventure directed by Oscar®-winning visual-effects artist Christian Rivers (King Kong). Joining Rivers are The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogies three-time Academy Award®-winning filmmakers Peter Jackson, Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens, who have penned the screenplay. Visual effects are created by a Weta Digital team led by Ken McGaugh, Kevin Smith, Luke Millar and Dennis Yoo. The Universal and MRC adaptation is from the award-winning book series by Philip Reeve, published in 2001 by Scholastic. On board as producers are 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. Universal will distribute the film worldwide.

People take all kind of impossible nonsense in superhero movies and it's ok. But somehow, a science fiction film with moving cities is stupid? Update: Saw it today and visually it's magnificent, something to be seen in a theatre and you won't be disappointed. The acting is ok but the story is clearly written for a 3 hour long dvd extended edition. This theatrical version is too fast for what the film has to offer. Will see it again and buy the extended edition guaranteed.

Please, PLEASE! Don't make Hester another cookie cutter "strong female character". She's so much more than that. She's a spiteful, half child, half revenge machine who steals the book from the main character on every page. I like the aesthetic and everything, but damn if it doesn't look like they've already spoiled the best part of the book.

As a massive fan of the books, I was disappointed with the first trailer, but this one has re-invigorated my interest, and I can't wait to see it!
Does anyone else get those "Shadowhunter/ Mortel Instrument" vibes? 🤔
Really excited to see this. We need more creative and ambitious movies like this. I really hope this turns out good

I think Hester is going to need a complete character rewrite. Its not going to make sense for people to naturally hate her or for her to hide her face if she's beautiful. I fear she may be turned into another generic YA heroine, rather than the unique, flawed person she is in the books.

"The world is changing" is literally the cheesiest line you can put in a movie trailer.

Why do ppl not like the movie. Watched it tday and it was awesomeeee
The scar is obviously incredibly dissapointing but the visuals, the whole world and soundrack all looks epic!! So I'm still excited for the movie!
Completely accurate depiction of London's relationship to the rest of the UK.

I find it rather amusing that the biggest issue people have is that Hester didn't get cut up properly. It seems to be quite different to the books, nonetheless I've been waiting for the film for ages, so I think I can wait a couple more months.

Why do film studios do this?? This trailer tells basically the whole plot. I'm 100% sure, if you had a 1 minute trailer showing a couple clips of picturesque scenery vast valleys with no human life and a building slowly passing, the music changes and a large moving city is revealed, that would have had the same wow effect without spoiling the story and the plot. I would add more mystery.

It looks interesting, but for some reason I feel like it's going to fall short of everyone's expectations. Not exactly sure why myself, it's just a hunch.

Finally, a film that Peter Jackson WANTS to make. I honestly love the LOTR and King Kong to no end, and Peter Jackson truly is brilliant when he puts his passion into it. Sadly, being forced to the make the Hobbit trilogy and rush it seems to have disheartened him from making more films.

Hester: "But I got away".
Yes, and with barely a mark on your face. I'd say your doing pretty good.

Better trailer this time around, and the best two bucks I have spent at Redbox in a while.

Released from 2018, but the year in the movie is 3118?!
Was worried how they will translate the vivid descriptions of the cities from book to screen. My worries have been quenched.

I watched the first trailer some months back, and initially shrugged it off. But re-watching the trailer piqued my interest, and I picked up the book. It was a great read! Now after re-analyzing the first trailer, as well as seeing this one, I am confident that they are doing a great adaptation. Sure, I see some obvious changes for the sake of altering the books episodic structure into a streamlined plot to work well as a movie, but Peter Jackson already did that with Lord of the Rings anyway, and it turned out pretty well. I honestly believe this movie will turn out better than the Hobbit films (which I still thoroughly enjoyed for what they were). I think having a new world to build is what Mr. Jackson needed to do.
The scenes and flashbacks shrike had in the movie were surprisingly awesome

I instantly got a “wild Wild West” vibe from this. Hyper drive cringe level activitated.
Oh man, this gives me (probably futile) hope that a live action Howl's Moving Castle might be cool to see!

Carol the Great, the King of the Frank, "Charlemagne," who understood the importance of the culture and stability of an empire (real) = Governor Khan, who replicated this historic character.
(in movie)

Carolingian Empire, stability, prosperity, settlement (real) = Anti-Traction League-static settlements "(traditional, non-mobile cities) in Asia
(in movie)

migratory populations (the Middle Ages) (real) = mobile "predator" cities
(in movie)

the real 9th-century history lesson.
Caroligian Empire vs migratory populations /
Anti-Traction League vs mobile cities

so in 1000 years we have forgotten this lesson just as movie characters (London) forgot the lesson of M.E.D.U.S.A in the year +3118
it might seem stupid to see the cities running after other cities and then to swallow them, but ironically it happened 1000 years ago until someone realized what to do (Carol)

this movie, in my opinion, is a very good one and I like how ironies that people repeat their history to infinity, even the END.

1:07 Peter Jackson Presents
1:25 "Keep it safe"
1:34 Mouth-of-Sauron-like mouth

Is it just me, or does this trailer seem to target heavily on LoTR fans?

Something just looks off about it. Cool concept, but not sure it's gonna work.
Shriiiiiiiiike!! I was excited before, but now...!!
Kudos to Peter Jackson for giving us something new to watch! I hope this is the next great movie series.

This must be aiming for the international markets, cause I see no way in hell this is making a divot in the US box office.

That would actually be refreshing.

I'm going to see this, but honestly, i wish Hollywood would stop raping good books for fast, cash cows. I get the all the comic books to movies/tv, but good wavy gravy, come up with something ORIGINAL....

This has an AMC Badlands feel to it. Peter, I need more Lord of the Rings.

Satisfied viewing....lot of love and waiting for Mortal Engines...😘
I thought for a Second that this was the scene from the Howls Moving Castle.... from studio ghibli
Steampunk theme of movie will be visual treat.
Maybe in the future cities would be on wheels already. 😂👍🏻
Is this how we'll live after a no-deal Brexit?

This is probably a remake of the mortal instruments from another perspective.

Even if the movie is great. I cant watch it. The series was just amazing. Cant get angry over details.
"The world is changing." So this is a MARVEL film.

I really love the idea of the moving cities, but the dialogue and the story feel very cliché.
I'll probably still see it though
Howl's moving castle the movie. Okay... But CGI looks cheap don't you see?

This movie looks amazing, i'm excited for this and the new fantastic beast movie
So it's a YA movie based off a book with the main villain named Valentine and the word "mortal" in the title. Except this one has Peter Jackson and cities driving around on wheels, so I think I prefer this already.

In retrospect, I really enjoyed the books for their 1 character development, 2 the gradual reveal of the reality of the world, and 3 the thematic tension between the main characters.

1 Hester has no need to change; and in the books, she doesn't. Tom looks like he's not the perspective character here; so his development is cheapened. Katherine and Bevis haven't even been shown yet; who knows if they'll even impact the plot at all; so I can't depend on their character arc. Is there any character development left?
2 This trailer revealed like 90% of the secrets and dark parts of this world's reality that we learned gradually in the book. Is there any intrigue left?
3 the tension between the cast. Does Tom even matter in the movie? We don't even know his name from the trailers. It looks like its just gonna be action hero Hester and needy sidekick loverboy, with none of the main thematic clashes in their beliefs that made them an interesting duo in the first place. Will there be any interesting character chemistry at all?

I'm very worried that this adaptation is gonna get the same immensely disappointing treatment that The Hobbit did, but even worse since they're gonna feel super cautious about doing anything interesting with the main character since she's a woman and that's such a hot button issue.

Pessimistic AF so I won't be disappointed no matter what happens. Maybe I'll have the pleasant surprise of being proven totally and utterly wrong about everything. I sincerely hope so.

I know this movie is great but why compare it with Aquaman?

There's an anime just like this. About moving cities that battle each other, I just forgot the name of the anime but it was great.

I cannot WAIT for this I'm so hyped! They've done such a great job of Shrike he's even more creepy than I imagined him, the face reminds me a lot of IRobot so it ties in really nicely with being some past-futre-tech that we might've invented sometime in their past.
