"Hugo" Trailer: The Next Big 3D Family Movie Experience from Martin ScorseseWendyM
Will “Hugo” be the next big 3D family movie to hit the big screen? Martin Scorsese hopes so.
Scorsese, whose resume is impressive, but never considered family-friendly, has ventured into new territory with “Hugo,” based on Brian Selznick’s award-winning book “The Invention of Hugo Cabret.”
I’m sure Scorsese will take some heat for tackling a kids movie, but honestly, this looks like a fun adventure that my kids would love.
Also? No talking chihuahuas, apes, chipmunks or other animals, which is a bonus to those parents who have had to sit through some of that tiresome schlock.
Hugo also boasts a fabulous cast – Chloe Moretz, who is always fantastic, as well as Sacha Baron Cohen, Christopher Lee, Emily Mortimer, Helen McCrory, Jude Law, and Ray Winstone – making for a lineup worth watching. Hugo Cabret is played by Asa Butterfield, and he seems quite adorable.
Hugo is an orphan who lives in the wall of a train station in Paris – from the looks of the trailer, there is mystery and adventure aplenty, which usually translates well to 3D. Moretz sums it up in the trailer: “It’s Neverland and Oz and Treasure Island all wrapped into one.”
Scorsese co-produces “Hugo” with Johnny Depp, Graham King and Tim Headington. Anything with Johnny Depp’s name on it is definitely worth a look, in my book.
Hugo will be in theaters on November 23. Is it something you’d take your kids to?
