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.

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!

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.
"he's here" like Thanos 😂

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.

Aside from Hester’s “scar” this looked really good. Definitely watching after I finish the book!
Does anyone else get those "Shadowhunter/ Mortel Instrument" vibes? 🤔
Completely accurate depiction of London's relationship to the rest of the UK.
Aside from Hester's "scar", the visuals look awesome! Can't wait to see it.

“Lord of the Final Hunger Matrix Fantasy Games”

If straight to DVD was still a thing(now straight to direct free download with a purchase of a iPad these days), that’s where this would/will end up.

The story is copy paste same old, same old, with a dash of regurgitated cliches. Throat jamming obnoxious character leads all over the place. With horrible one liners to carry scene to scene, and tons of CGI suffocating everything...

It honestly looks like it would be better as an RPG video game, rather than a motion picture..

Visually stunning, linguistically stunted, and lack luster of remembrance...

Just my opinion..

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

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.

I would watch a Peter Jackson movie even if it was made off an iPhone 3.

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.
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!
when the fire nation attacked
Peter Jackson: “How often do you go to the movies and see something you’ve never seen before?”

I feel the question should rather be “How often do you see Hollywood rehashing movies that have already been made and anime’s stolen from Japan because Hollywood refuses to take chances on anything new?”

I have been reading the Mortal Engines 4 books and it's prequels too, for 4 months now, and I know or a fact that Hester, my favourite character, is not some female leader. She is a revenge-seeking, killing, predator-machine. In other words, she is awesome.

I honestly think this looks very good, and if Peter Jackson was involved I'm doomed to like it.
"She is beautiful, and strange, and very very -rare- *generic, flat, and uninteresting. Especially whenever she mentions her mother.* "

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.

What's up with authors that have "Mortal" in the title and the name "Valentine" as a villain
"She is beautiful, and strange, and very, very rare." And very very pissed, from the look of it.

I thought it said Percy Jackson and I was like "OH HELL YAH THIS IS GONNA BE THE BEST MOVIE IN 2018" and then I realize that it said Peter Jackson...
just watched this for the first time today, loved it. an awesome movie
0:09 does dat superdirty motherboard even work?
I had never heard of Mortal Engines but as I watched the trailer, my first thought was "wow, nothing this imaginative could be an original idea. This HAS to be a book"

And then the ‘Weyland’ crosses the horizon, bearing Clan Vurgaan of the Iron Hands...........
l love how the entire promotion is organised around Peter Jackson's name. Half of the peoplke thinks PJ is the director of the movie while he is not...
Dan N Iemiesse
Dan N Iemiesse:
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.

Bryan Ford:
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.

1:34 Mouth-of-Sauron-like mouth

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