Directed by Christian Rivers, starring Hera Hilmar, Hugo Weaving and Jihae, Mortal Engines is an action / fantasy / sci-fi movie set many years after the ‘Sixty Minute War.’ A time when cities survive a now desolate Earth by moving around on giant wheels, attacking and devouring smaller towns to replenish their resources…
The concept for this movie which has Peter Jackson of The Lord Of The Rings trilogy involved as one of the screenwriters is definitely interesting. Nevertheless, there are just a few reasons why I find myself intrigued but not quite excited, yet.
One reason is the fact that I don’t really know the film’s star so I don’t have that prior connection. Another reason is we don’t get to see her face in this trailer so there’s that barrier to connection. Last but absolutely not least, the idea of London, England my dear beloved city existing only on wheels is very unsettling to say the least.
Now that all my random thoughts have been aired, I’m quite sure that I’ll get over my concerns enough to appreciate one more fearless screen heroine.
Joel Tobeck and Robert Sheehan also star.
Mortal Engines Release Dates: December 14th, 2018 (US & UK)…
