My god, it’s a fantastic week to be a movie fan. Let’s see, we’ve had a Contagion trailer, a Dark Knight Rises trailer, a great look at both Total Recall and The Amazing Spider-Man, a Sherlock Holmes: Game Of Shadows trailer, Bourne Legacy casting news, a wonderful trailer for John Carter and much more. I seriously feel like it’s Christmas. I really didn’t think that we’d get anything more but on this fine Thursday evening, we now have the first trailer for Martin Scorsese‘s Hugo.
Hugo looks like a wonderful film from the legendary director. It’s his first foray into 3D and family films but it looks like Scorsese has really hit it out of the park. Set to 30 Seconds To Mars‘ Kings and Queens, this enchanting trailer shows off cast members such as Sacha Baron Cohen, Jude Law, Ray Winstone, Ben Kingsley, Asa Butterfield and Chloe Moretz as we get our first look into this beautiful world.
It’s an absolutely marvelous trailer and I’ve officially fallen in love with the film. Admittedly, I didn’t care much for it up until now as I didn’t expect a whole lot from a film that puts Martin Scorsese into a family oriented fantasy world. Well, boy was I wrong!
Both Chloe Moretz and Asa Butterfield look brilliant in their roles and the fantastical world that Scorsese has created looks like it’s going to come to life beautifully in 3D.
This looks like a perfect Holiday film that will likely provide audiences with an exciting adventure. It also may prove to be another hit for the man who brought us Raging Bull and Goodfellas, among others.
If you don’t believe me, or are still a skeptic, check out the fantastic trailer below.
Paramount is set to release Hugo in 3D on November 23.
Hugo tells the story of an orphan boy living a secret life in the walls of a Paris train station. With the help of an eccentric girl, he searches for the answer to a mystery linking the father he recently lost, the ill-tempered toy shop owner living below him and a heart shaped lock, seemingly without a key. Based on Brian Selznick’s award winning and imaginative New York Times bestseller, The Invention of Hugo Cabret, this magical tale is Academy Award winner Martin Scorsese’s first film shot in 3D.
