If you didn’t already know, Philip Reeves’ Mortal Engines is coming to the big screen. We brought you the original news as soon as we heard about it, and a few months ago the first teaser trailer followed, and now trailer two is here!
There’s no doubt we’re depleting the world’s resources and in Mortal Engines, Reeves imagines a world where we all have to resort to rolling cities, forced into predatory behaviour as they crawl the world fighting to survive.
The movie is being brought to us by Peter Jackson of Lord of the Rings fame, and he certainly knows a thing or two about creating epics on the big screen. We have to say it looks astonishingly dramatic on the big screen and seems to translate to movie very well. Anyone who has read the book will have a fixed idea of how they think the ‘Mortal Engines’ should look, and this could decide whether you enjoy the movies or not.
Personally, I think this is going to be a fantastic adaptation, and we won’t have long to wait now as it’s released in cinemas on December 14th! If you haven’t already read the book, you still have time to do so before this adaptation hits the big screens.
