The steampunk epic is based on the 2001 novel of the same title by Philip Reeve, and follows a post-apocalyptic Earth, in which major cities called “Traction Cities” run on huge engines and wheels as they move around the world to consume resources.
Mortal Engines stars Hugo Weaving as Thaddeus Valentine, Hera Hilmar as Hester Shaw, Robert Sheehan as Tom Natsworthy, and Stephen Lang as Shrike.
This film will be the directorial debut of Christian Rivers, who worked as a storyboard artist and art director on Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Rivers won an Oscar for Visual Effects for his work on King Kong.
Mortal Engines is set to release in theaters on December 14, 2018.
