The end of 2018 was marked by the release of the film adaptation of the world-wide fantasy book “Deadly Machines”, the rental showed excellent sales, so the creator of the picture Peter Jackson announced the release date of the second part of the film “Mortal Engines 2”. The director is known for his work on The Lord of the Rings, King Kong and other fantastic action films. Jackson often shoots sequels and the second part of the acclaimed film, as expected, will be created by him.
The release of the second part is announced at the level of rumors, so there is no exact release date for Mortal Engines 2 yet. The events of the film in the genre of science fiction will tell about the near future, when the vast majority of the inhabitants of the earth were destroyed by a devastating cataclysm. Earthlings managed to adapt to life in new realities, now people do not leave the huge cities that move on the surface of the earth.
There are few resources for life – this has led to the fact that larger cities attack smaller ones and absorb them with the aim of plundering. Despite the deplorable state of civilization, the stratification into a class system has not disappeared anywhere. Rich and powerful people live in the upper levels of cities, while less affluent people are forced to survive in the brutal conditions of the lower levels, where lawlessness and chaos reign.
The main character of the picture is a young man named Tom lives in one of the largest cities – London. He is a member of the lower class of the population and works as an apprentice. The guy does not look for trouble and dreams of just surviving in adverse conditions, but one day his life completely changes. This happens after he meets a mysterious girl named Esther Shaw. Any power gives rise to those who do not want to put up with it. In the future, nothing has changed, there are people who want to destroy the class system and they need to overthrow the existing government . People unite in partisan detachments and attack the military and government officials.
Representatives of such opposing groups become criminals. This is what leads Esther to the need to descend to the lower levels. A hunt is declared for her and, in an attempt to escape, the heroine ends up in the workshop where Tom works . The guy hides the girl and finds himself in the center of adventures that relentlessly follow the girl. The heroine convinces Tom to help and convinces that it is real to change the existing system. The filmmakers recently announced that they will be filming a sequel to Mortal Engines 2, but no release date has yet been announced. There is no doubt that the cast will remain the same and new faces may appear.
Eminent actors – Hugo Weivig, Stephen Lang and Robert Sheehan – are involved in the filming of the film. Thanks to the success of the first film, they are interested in further participation in the filming . There are no details about the plot of the second part, but the basis for writing the plot will be one of the sequels of the series of books, consisting of four books. The director does not name the release date of the film, and this is not surprising, because the showing of the first part has not yet been completed, but the picture should be expected no earlier than December 2020.
The story will continue to revolve around Esther and Tom, who discover the terrible secret that the world can change for the better. The heroes have to get to a new town, much smaller in size than London and go to the ends of the earth in the forbidden lands , where, according to rumors, there is something that will help them achieve their goal. It is not known whether the writers will accurately follow the content of the books, but the first part received excellent reviews from critics and made it possible to think about working on a sequel. It is possible that the source text will be adapted and this makes viewing more interesting, both for ordinary viewers and for fans of the series.
