UPDATE: Universal Pictures UK has informed us, alongside the launch of a brand new poster, that the trailer will arrive online this Friday.
Seems like everyone wants to get their trailers in front of the trifecta of A Star Is Born, Venom and First Man on the big screen over the next two weeks! Universal, the studio behind the latter Neil Armstrong biopic, is set to join in the fun with a brand new look at the Christian Rivers-directed and Peter Jackson-produced Mortal Engines – the third trailer has been rated today by Alberta Film Ratings.
This comes following the announcement of a panel for the film next Friday, October 5, 12pm ET at New York Comic-Con, hosted by frequent Jackson collaborator Andy Serkis and featuring the film’s cast and creative team. With it being almost a certainty that the new trailer will go out on the big screen with Damien Chazelle’s latest, this provides the ideal platform for a public/online launch of this next look at the upcoming release. As soon as we get more info, we will be sure to update!
Thousands of years after civilization was destroyed by a cataclysmic event, humankind has adapted and a new way of living has evolved. Gigantic moving cities now roam the Earth, ruthlessly preying upon smaller traction towns. Tom Natsworthy—who hails from a Lower Tier of the great traction city of London—finds himself fighting for his own survival after he encounters the dangerous fugitive Hester Shaw. Two opposites, whose paths should never have crossed, forge an unlikely alliance that is destined to change the course of the future.
Co-written and produced by Peter Jackson, directed by Christian Rivers, and starring Robert Sheehan, Hera Hilmar, Hugo Weaving, Jihae, Leila George, Ronan Raftery and Stephen Lang, Mortal Engines is released in the UK on December 8, followed by December 14 in the U.S..
