Peter Jackson’s ‘Mortal Engines’ Trailer Premiering With ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’

Peter Jackson has revealed that the first trailer for Mortal Engines will premiere alongside Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Lord Of The Rings director Peter Jackson has revealed on Facebook that the first trailer for Mortal Engines will premiere ahead of Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Directed by Jackson‘s good friend and long-time collaborator Christian Rivers, Mortal Engines is based on Philip Reeve’s YA series of the same name. The story takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where entire cities roam the earth on giant wheels, looking for smaller cities to destroy.

See what Jackson said below:

Hi everyone,

I am pleased to announce that the teaser trailer for our movie Mortal Engines will be debuting in cinemas around the world, with Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Mortal Engines is directed by Christian Rivers and will be released next year.

I hope you all enjoy our first trailer!

Cheers,

Peter J

Obviously, having the first trailer premiere alongside Star Wars: The Last Jedi is a big deal. The latest episode of the Star Wars Saga is set to break the box-office and it doesn’t hurt to have that many people watch your trailer.

Mortal Engines is scheduled for release in 2018.
