First trailer for the upcoming post-apocalyptic sci-fi adventure.

Peter Jackson reteams with his Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit writers Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens to pen the screenplay for Mortal Engines, a sci-fi adventure directed by Oscar-winning visual-effects artist Christian Rivers.

Hugo Weaving, Robert Sheehan and Hera Hilmar star in the film, set thousands of years after an apocalyptic event.

Mortal Engines is in UK/ROI cinemas December 2018.

The official synopsis reads:

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 (Robert Sheehan)—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 (Hera Hilmar).  Two opposites, whose paths should never have crossed, forge an unlikely alliance that is destined to change the course of the future.
