Peter Jackson's Mortal Engines - 1st Teaser

 

He lost me as a fan after The Hobbit. What a money grab that was.

Looks stupid

Looks ridiculous

Watching the trailer I don't know what it's about so why is it stupid and ridiculous?

no idea what this is, so i'll wait.

The fact that it all looks like poop grade CGI?

Its like more unbelievable than the world of mad max but less fun and violent.


Complete dog shit on all marks.

So the huge vehicle is obviously America swallowing up and destroying all the noble and wonderful smaller vehicles (cultures). I'm guessing the large vehicle will be headed by evil white males.

It's sad that this is the first thing I think of when seeing that.

I read the first book this year and it was pretty "meh."

The book is set in a post-apocalyptic world, ravaged by a "Sixty Minute War", which caused massive geological upheaval. To escape the earthquakes, volcanoes, and other instabilities, a Nomad leader called Nikola Quercus installed huge engines and wheels on London, and enabled it to dismantle (or eat) other cities for resources.



The technology rapidly spread, and evolved into what is known as "Municipal Darwinism". Although the planet has since become stable, Municipal Darwinism has spread to most of the world except for Asia and parts of Africa. Much technological and scientific knowledge was lost during the war. Because scientific progress has almost completely halted, "Old Tech" is highly prized and recovered by scavengers and archaeologists.



Europe, some of Asia, North Africa, Antarctica, and the Arctic are dominated by Traction Cities, whereas North America was so ravaged by the war that it is often identified as "the dead continent", and the rest of the world is the stronghold of the Anti-Traction League, which seeks to keep cities from moving and thus stop the intense consumption of the planet's remaining resources.

Very tentative given that preview.

EluThingol - He lost me as a fan after The Hobbit. What a money grab that was.

He’s made 3 good movies in his career the rest kind of suck. And this one looks dumb. 

That's exactly what it would take to make me live in London

That girl is as average as that trailer
