Peter Jackson goes from Middle Earth to a Post-Apocalyptic version of the earth in his new Sci-Fi drama “MORTAL ENGINES”
Hugo Weaving and Peter Jackson must have caught a ride on an elven ship out of middle Earth to a new world torn by destruction from quantum weapons known as “Medusa” in the 60 second war. Cities that survived the bombings were forced to evolve and become mobile on large tank like tracks to roam the land in search of smaller cities to engulf and take their supplies and use the city to feed the enormous engines powering the cities.
Weaving plays Thaddeus Valentine, an archaeologist turned visionary aboard the City of London, who is developing a new type of energy source using found tech from the ancients back in the 21st century. London ran down a smaller German mining city capturing it and allowing the citizens to join the people of London. A mysterious woman hiding scars on her fac with a red scarf made her way through the crowd and pulls a knife stabbing Valentine while yelling, “This is for murdering my mother!” Hester Shaw, orphaned at the age of 8 and left to fend for herself in the wasteland had been trying for years to get aboard London.
