In this exciting film from postapocalyptic Mortal Engines, there are big cities, skyscrapers and a lot of fat steampunk machines, where the creators – including Peter Jackson – and the actors focus on the type of movie world in which they live and explain the roles they have in this fantasy – hierarchy . Mortal Engines is based on the award-winning youth books of the same name and on December 14 th in the Swedish cinemas.
Thousands of years after civilization was destroyed by cataclysm, humanity adapted and evolved a new way of life. Gigantic, moving cities are now roaming the Earth, ruthlessly feeding on smaller traction cities. Tom Natsworthy (Robert Sheehan) – coming from the lower tier of the big city of London with traction – fights for his own survival after encountering a dangerous jumble of Hester Shaw (Hera Hilmar). For opposites whose paths should never intersect, forge an unexpected alliance that will change the course of the future.
Incidentally, Peter Jackson said he would definitely make the sequel to Spencberg's Tintin Adventurous Secret, that he could imagine filming the Temple of the Sun and that he probably begins with a script around New Year.
