OUT NOW... MOR­TAL EN­GINES (12A)

Kentish Express Ashford & District - What's On - - CINEMA -

Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens and Peter Jack­son, the Os­car-win­ning trio re­spon­si­ble for The Lord Of The Rings tril­ogy, co-write the screen­play for this big bud­get screen adap­ta­tion of the novel of the same ti­tle penned by Philip Reeve. It is the first book in a four-part ad­ven­ture set in a dystopian fu­ture world where the sur­vivors of the Sixty Minute War live in mo­bile cities bolted to­gether from scav­enged parts. Re­sources are painfully lim­ited so cities must lit­er­ally con­sume ri­vals and in­gest the de­bris to power mo­tors and fur­naces - and the largest of these mo­torised me­trop­o­lises is Lon­don. But when cast out, peo­ple must sur­vive in sav­age waste­lands.
