Mortal Engines has been teased since last year. Heck, co-producer Peter Jackson revealed concept art in May 2017 (See it here) followed by a teaser trailer last December (See it here), followed by a full trailer at the beginning of last month in June (See it here). That kind of investment in a project that’s not a sure is interesting. Yes Mortal Engines is based on a popular novel series by author Philip Reeve, the film itself based on the first in the series, the 2001 novel of the same name. But one can only hope that the amount of investment that Warner Bros. is putting in the film, how early they are getting the word out there for the film, given that it’s not out till December 14th, is a sign of their faith in the film’s potential. That continues today with a new featurette released for the film, simply titled “A Look Inside In”, which you can check out below:
Mortal Engines stars Hugo Weaving, Hera Hilmar, Robert Sheehan, Jihae, Ronan Raftery, Leila George, Patrick Malahide, and Stephen Lang. It is directed by Christian Rivers.
