First Trailer for Martin Scorsese's Hugo
07.15.11 by Chris
From the director who brought you The Departed, Taxi Driver, and Godfellas comes. . .the family fantasy movie of Thanksgiving? And in 3-D?
Yep, the same man known for bodies in trunks and Robert De Niro asking, "You talking to me?" comes a "3-D fantasy movie" based on a children's book.
Based on 2007's The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick, Hugo is about a boy who takes to living in the walls of a Paris train station after his father dies in an accident. He has with him a mechanical man his father invented. When he meets a girl with a special key, their adventure begins.
From the look of the movie's trailer, which debuted before Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, this is not your father's Martin Scorsese.
The movie stars Asa Butterfield in the title role, and also features Chloë Moretz, Jude Law, Christopher Lee, Ben Kingsley, and Sacha Baron Cohen, among others.
