Peter Jacksons' "Mortal Engines" will release in India on December 7, a week before its US release.
Based on Philip Reeve's book by the same name, "Mortal Engines" is set in a steampunk world where entire cities have been mounted on wheels and prey on one another. It depicts a world of predator cities existing thousands of years after current civilization has been destroyed by a cataclysmic event.
