Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson is back with a new "epic saga" set in a dystopian future, called Mortal Engines. The first minute and a half teaser focuses on one specific scene, setting up the world of Mortal Engines without giving too much away.

This new venture into the genre is written and produced by Peter Jackson of LOTR fame and directed by Christian Rivers, who worked on the VFX for the LOTR trilogy as well as on Jackson's movies King Kong and The Lovely Bones.

This news coincides with the release of the post-apocalyptic film's first trailer, which comes out today.

Mortal Engines will be used to help promote New Zealand's "screen and education interests". As part of the contract, the movie will be used to promote New Zealand's screen and education interests, Variety reported. Producers include Zane Weiner, Amanda Walker, Deborah Forte, Fran Walsh and Peter Jackson.

Many in Hollywood believe New Zealand provides one of the world's most generous location incentive schemes and this past succeeded in attracting major blockbuster productions like A Wrinkle in Time, Mission: Impossible 6 and Meg.

Sony Xperia XZ2 specs leaked - new Snapdragon 845 phone incoming?
Sony is probably sticking with the same conventional bezel design that were in its early flagships instead of the thin-bezels. The handset is rumoured to feature a 5.48-inch Full HD display which is a bit larger than the 5.2-inch of the Xperia XZ1.

Given the range of local talent involved in the process, ENZ chief executive Grant McPherson says the partnership with the film presents an opportunity to build awareness of New Zealand as a quality education destination for worldwide students.

More than 1000 Kiwis were contracted during the 16-week principal photography period in Wellington earlier this year.

Thousands of years after civilisation was destroyed by a cataclysmic event, humankind has adapted and a new way of living has evolved.

Ahead of its release next December, The Fan Carpet are pleased to present the first Photos and Trailer for Christian Rivers' MORTAL ENGINES, based on the novel by Philip Reeve, courtesy of Universal Pictures!
