Mortal Engines isn’t just another young adult yarn set in a grim future where a gutsy heroine fights to bring down an oppressive regime.
With Peter Jackson onboard as producer, this sci-fi fantasy adventure has more in common with The Lord of the Rings and Star Wars than The Hunger Games. The concept alone is a winner: following a 60-minute war that turned Earth into a wasteland, London is now a predatory Traction City that ingests towns in its path to plunder their resources, and scarred fugitive Hester Shaw (Hera Hilmar) may be the only one capable of halting its inexorable advance. Adapted from the first novel in a four-book saga by Philip Reeve, Mortal Engines is a triumph of worldbuilding that will blow you away with its incredible visual effects.
