Though we’re still dealing with the chaos that is New York Comic Con, there are other things to call to your attention while that is being addressed and one item to enjoy is the second Official Trailer for the upcoming film “Mortal Engines”. This Peter Jackson film is based on the book with the same name so let’s take a look.

The Premise: Tom is a twenty-something Londoner who has only ever lived inside his travelling hometown, and his feet have never touched grass, mud or land. His first taste of the outside comes quite abruptly: Tom gets in the way of the masked Hester’s attempt to kill Thaddeus Valentine, a powerful man she blames for her mother’s murder, and both Hester and Tom end up thrown out of the moving “traction” city, to fend for themselves.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: My thoughts about the film remain the same and I guess this is partially because I am so involved in the New York Comic Con. This looks like an adventurous film but maybe its geared towards a little younger audience than I am. In December I have a full itinerary with Trans-Siberian Orchestra shows and the “Aquaman” movie so this might be a wait until its on Netflix or HBO which I am still paying for and unsure why based on the lack of programming I enjoy being on it at the moment. ANYWAY….what about you readers? Does this second trailer gear you up? Chime in down below in the comments and let me know. See you after the convention.
