A Mortal Engines teaser trailer is on its way. SOON. Like The Last Jedi SOON.


Update: Peter Jackson has confirmed the news.

An eagle eyed fan has discovered that Canada's Consumer Protection BC unit has approved the release of a Mortal Engines movie teaser trailer.

This is a surprise to be sure, but a welcome one.

Consumer Protection BC is a Canadian government entity and a key role is "Classifying all motion pictures exhibited in BC".

If you're a true blue Star Wars fan you will know two things right now.

You will have noted the Star Wars quote above from Emperor Palpatine and you'll also know that The Last Jedi is released in less that two weeks!

We're thus of a firm view that the Mortal Engines teaser will be shown during screenings of The Last Jedi.

Which kind of makes sense - Universal Pictures will be going in large on this Peter Jackson produced movie so a great way to get the hype train going as fast as a railhead can go is to get in in front of as many people as possible and the new Star Wars movie will serve that need!

Here's the proof:

Approved means approval to release to the Canadian public so we can reasonably expect that similar arrangements are happening across the globe.

  3. Nothing on the BBFC (UK equivalent to the Consumer Protection BC) site yet :o(. Would be great to see this with The Last Jedi! Wonder what it will feature? Will we get to see Hester?

  4. Guess the Canadians are wild for ME. Alberta has also rated the teaser (PG) and given a running time of 1.21: https://www.alberta.ca/recently-rated-trailers.aspx
