When I went to watch Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom this past weekend one of the trailers that struck me before the film came on was this movie called Mortal Engines. As the trailer played I knew there was something awfully familiar about the cinematography and the overall fantasy vibe of the film. And then midway through the trailer it said that Peter Jackson was making this movie and I was like, “Whoa.” I haven’t heard anything about Peter Jackson since the end of The Hobbit trilogy and so to see this new film coming out this December with the legendary director at the helm is kind of amazing. Here’s the trailer.
This literally looks like The Hobbit except there’s a female lead, guns, and explosions. I’m pretty sure Mortal Engines was a novel before it was brought to the big screen because this looks just like a fantastic fantasy novel that I would want to read.
I’m a huge Peter Jackson fan (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy are some of the best movies ever made) and so I’m totally down for another film of his, especially one that looks this cool.
Wow, maybe there will be a very cool movie coming out this December after all. 🙂
I thank you for reading and I hope this excited you as much as it excited me. Have a wonderful day.
