Mortal Engines — Character Featurettes


added: Mon, Oct 1st '18

Check out new character featurettes for Peter Jackson's upcoming sci-fi steampunk epic "Mortal Engines." The quick webisodes are filled with some exciting new footage from the flick, as well as spotlighting the film's main characters: "Hester Shaw" (played by Icelandic actress Hera Hilmar, from TV's "Da Vinci's Demons") and "Tom Natsworthy" (played by Irish actor Robert Sheehan, from "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones").

Based on British author Philip Reeve's best-selling novel series, the post-apocalyptic film follows a facially scarred runaway named Hester Shaw (Hilmar), who is dead set on assassinating the man who slaughtered her parents, Thaddeus Valentine (played by Hugo Weaving). The problem is, Valentine controls the entire city of London, which is now a gigantic moving machine that frequently attacks other moving cities, like pirate ships at sea.

Co-written and produced by Peter Jackson, along with his fellow writing partners Philippa Boyens and Fran Walsh ("Lord of Rings" and "Hobbit"), the film is the directorial debut of Oscar-winning visual-effects and storyboard artist Christian Rivers, who has worked with the Oscar-winning director for over 25 years.

"Mortal Engines" begins rolling into theaters everywhere on December 14th.

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.
