The first movie of brand new saga that will be in cinemas almost one year from now, 14 December 2018 (USA): many years after the Sixty minute war cities survive a now desolate Earth by moving around on giant wheels attacking and devouring smaller towns to replenish their resources.
Thousands of years after civilization was destroyed by a cataclysmic event, humankind has adapted and a new way of living has evolved. Gigantic moving cities now roam the Earth, ruthlessly preying upon smaller traction towns. Tom Natsworthy — who hails from a Lower Tier of the great traction city of London — finds himself fighting for his own survival after he encounters the dangerous fugitive Hester Shaw (Hera Hilmar). Two opposites, whose paths should never have crossed, forge an unlikely alliance that is destined to change the course of the future.
