The trailer for the 3-D epic adventure Mortal Engines, based on the 2001 Scholastic book series by Philip Reeve, has been released. The film adaptation, directed by Oscar-winning visual effects artist Christian Rivers (King Kong) and written by The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogies screenwriters Peter Jackson, Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens, comes to theaters Dec. 14, 2018.

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. Tom Natsworthy (Robert Sheehan) — who hails from a Lower Tier of the great traction city of London — finds himself fighting for his own survival after he encounters the dangerous fugitive Hester Shaw (Hera Hilmar). Two opposites, whose paths should never have crossed, forge an unlikely alliance that is destined to change the course of the future. 

Joining Sheehan and Hilmar in the cast are Hugo Weaving, Jihae, Ronan Raftery, Leila George, Patrick Malahide and Stephen Lang.

In addition to the trailer, a handful of official images from the film, including a poster and stunning concept art, were released:
