MORTAL ENGINES releases the second featurette, this time on Tom Natsworthy, the privileged London city dweller.
When the first trailer for Mortal Engines was released and we noticed Robert Sheehan (The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, Misfits) playing the male lead role of Tom Natsworthy, we got really interested in this movie, not that we weren’t already interested, especially with Peter Jackson and his crew and production company involved, as well as some familiar cast members that have joined in this epic adventure.
This latest featurette introduces us to Tom Natsworthy, the man who ends up getting involved in Hester Shaw’s crusade. The video shows some moments in the movie that haven’t been shown before, so check it out above, and check out the new character poster below.
Hundreds of years after civilization was destroyed by a cataclysmic event, a mysterious young woman, Hester Shaw (Hera Hilmar), emerges as the only one who can stop London — now a giant, predator city on wheels — from devouring everything in its path. Feral, and fiercely driven by the memory of her mother, Hester joins forces with Tom Natsworthy (Robert Sheehan), an outcast from London, along with Anna Fang (Jihae), a dangerous outlaw with a bounty on her head.
Mortal Engines is the startling, new epic adventure directed by Oscar®-winning visual-effects artist Christian Rivers (King Kong). Joining Rivers are The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogies three-time Academy Award®-winning filmmakers Peter Jackson, Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens, who have penned the screenplay. Visual effects are created by a Weta Digital team led by Ken McGaugh, Kevin Smith, Luke Millar and Dennis Yoo. The Universal and MRC adaptation is from the award-winning book series by Philip Reeve, published in 2001 by Scholastic.
On board as producers are Zane Weiner (The Hobbit trilogy), Amanda Walker (The Hobbit trilogy) and Deborah Forte (Goosebumps), as well as Walsh and Jackson. Ken Kamins (The Hobbit trilogy) joins Boyens as executive producer. Universal will distribute the film worldwide. www.mortalengines.com
