Mortal Engines (steampunk movie: second trailer).

Here’s the second trailer for Peter Jackson’s upcoming adaption of the steampunk-scifi Mortal Engines novel.

BBC hates sci-fi a little less, with Dangerous Visions.

Those who report back to us from the halls of the BBC usually describe an environment of high-brow condescension towards science fiction and fantasy.
