Peter Jackson and Frank Walsh produce and co-write this adaptation of the YA novel(s) of the same name. Imagine a post-war-devastated world where (somehow) a lot of humanity has survived by turning their cities into giant mobile tanks that roam the wastelands looking for resources. And bigger cities prey on smaller ones. Now imagine Hugo Weaving playing the evil guy, some teens in love jumping and swinging off of things, lots of CG, and a zombie terminator. You got yerself some Mortal Engines movie right there. How is it? Listen to Chris, Ben, Alan, and Marco tell you all about it.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
