Director Christian Rivers‘ The Mortal Engines hits theaters next month. The film adaptation of Phillip Reeve‘s young adult novel of the same name takes place in a dystopian future where civilization has been reduced to cities and metropolises living on large motor vehicles.
While the genre may be a bore, the plot for the film does give way for some big screen entertainment. And a new featurette takes a look how all of this came to be. Check it out, below.
Universal has released the newest trailer for Christian Rivers‘ Mortal Engines, a film adaptation of the YA books of the same name by author Philip Reeve. Once again, the YA adaptation is set in a dystopian time where our young protagonist is the only one who can bring peace to a broken world. So how will this differ from any of the other films with a similar premise? Well, it will have the creative filmmakers behind The Lord Of The Rings and The Hobbit trilogies to bring this film to life. Check out the trailer here below.
On this week’s The Drill Down Podcast, will genetic editing improve humanity, or kill us all (CRISPR)? Plus Amazon Prime Day results, U.S. election hacking, an Uncharted fan short… and much, much more.
A movie based on Naughty Dog’s hit Uncharted video game series has been stuck in a special level of development Hell for quite a while now. To give you an idea, Sony put the project on the fast track…back in 2009.
For a long time fans of the games were begging Sony to cast Firefly and Castle star Nathan Fillion in the lead role of Nathan Drake. Because Fillion is without question the best possible actor to play Drake, and fans knew it. Hell, even Fillion himself wanted to play Drake. Unfortunately Sony didn’t agree, and numerous other actors have been attached to the role over the years.
But none of that matters now. Since Sony didn’t give the fans what they wanted, the fans themselves have done it instead. It’s just a short fan film sadly, but it is a live-action Uncharted movie starring Fillion as Drake. You can check it out below, if it hasn’t been pulled for some reason.
