The latest trailer for Mortal Engines has revealed another world created in New Zealand. 

Mortal Engines is set 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. The feature film is directed by Christian Rivers and Producers Zane Weiner, Amanda Walker, Deborah Forte, Fran Walsh and Peter Jackson.

For the filmmakers and studios New Zealand was the ideal place to make the entire film due to New Zealand’s world class crew, talent, technicians, facilities and the depth of experience that the Kiwi crews have with world building.

The New Zealand Film Commission (NZFC) and Education New Zealand (ENZ) have partnered with Universal Pictures, MRC and Hungry City Limited on Mortal Engines as a part of the New Zealand Screen Production Grant 5% uplift. 

Mortal Engines opens worldwide in December 2018.
