Review: "When we read the novels, we knew they would be great movies. I can not wait to see them! "Peter Jackson
The saga of juvenile books 'Mortal Engines' is less than 3 months from reaching the screens around the world in the hands of Peter Jackson who, although he acts as producer and scriptwriter and not director, has been the great promoter of this adaptation that promises to be the new 'The Hunger Games'. The young public needs a new youth saga to become fans and, after the failure of the saga 'Divergent', may 'Mortal Machines' is the franchise that occupies the gap.
A few months ago we enjoyed a first breakthrough and now, we can take a closer look at what will be the star of the film: Hester Shaw, played by Hera Hilmar, an actress known for the series 'Da Vinci's Demons'. But, why now if the premiere will not take place until December 14? Very easy. Because this coming weekend will premiere at the New York Comic-Con with a new trailer for the movie. Not only have they released two new posters with her as the protagonist, but a one-minute clip where we can see new images of what the weekend will surely bring us.
The director Peter Jackson has already warned us that he will do with Mortal Machines exactly what he did with the saga of The Lord of the Rings: he will dedicate a film to each of the novels, without mixing and without dividing the story. And Mortal Machines is a tetralogy, with its prequel. So we will have, at least, four films, always, of course, that the first works at the box office. And if the four work, we will also have prequel (and, eye, the prequel is divided into three independent stories that someone like Peter Jackson give him for three more movies), and if not, time to time. Jackson says that Mortal Machines starts where the first book starts and ends where the first book ends. No more no less. If you have already read the books you know what to expect, but if you have not read them, and since you have not seen the trailer, you are lost, very lost.
As there is still time until the premiere, on December 14, we will see if it is worth submerging in this new universe. Because in the department Give Your Body Another Macarena Saga of Esquire.es we have risen today with the desire to answer the question: Should you invest your time, your money and your neurons in a tetralogy (plus a prequel) for that sympathetic collective reader that has been called young adults? They are the same young adults who have consumed the Harry Potter saga, who have devoured the Hunger Games ... We are going to investigate in the plot of the four, I say five, books to see what we find. There are a few spoilers as soon as we talk about the second, third and fourth book, so do yourself.
For starters, if you go in a hurry, we already tell you that there is a little boy (the young apprentice historian Tom Natsworthy) meets girl (the murderer Hester Shaw), the girl likes the boy, the boy likes the girl (what difficult and beautiful is this to love), but, look man where, with what we have on top of how difficult we are going to have it. But, having said that, the books, in fact, are about the politics behind the war, the power and the greed that destroys and displaces families. The first can engage young adults, but the second part is what convinces us and the rest that has convinced Peter Jackson.
And here we can read. If you like the first book, you'll want to read the other three. If the first book does not catch you, it's not the type of sagas that hooks you later in the second. Either you like the first one or there is nothing to scratch.
