Hugo Trailer Is Here
Martin Scorsese does Hugo Cabret

Hugo Trailer Is Here

Here’s something we didn’t expect to see crop up today… The first trailer for Hugo, AKA Martin Scorsese’s adaptation of The Invention of Hugo Cabret, has arrived online and can be watched over at Apple.

The film, based on Brian Selznick’s bestseller, finds young orphan Hugo Cabret (Asa Butterfield) living in the walls of a Parisian train station in 1930’s Paris. He’s endlessly trying to unlock the mystery surrounding his father (Jude Law)’s wondrous inventions. He has only a few elements to go on, most notably the heart-shaped lock that requires a special key.

Then one day he meets Isabelle (Chloe Moretz), an eccentric young girl with a taste for adventure that matches his own and – crucially – a key that seems to fit the lock.

Along the way, he’ll have to avoid the clutches of the uptight station inspector (Sacha Baron Cohen) and figure out how his life is linked to a cranky toyshop owner.

Based on this trailer, this is definitely something different from Scorsese (we’re not sure we ever expected to see a shot of a dog reacting to a slapstick pratfall from the director of Mean Streets), though he’s never been the sort of director you could pin down to one genre. And he’s clearly been channelling a little Spielberg twinkle here. Also, the trailer music from Legend Of The Guardians.

It definitely promises to be spectacular and Scorsese has, naturally, assembled quite the ensemble, with Emily Mortimer, Helen McCrory, Christopher Lee, Ben Kingsley, Ray Winstone, Richard Griffiths, Boardwalk Empire's Michael Stuhlbarg and more bolstering the ranks.

Check out the trailer and let us know your thoughts. Hugo will be out on December 2.

Not convinced
the production looks great but i don't think scorsese knows how to handle kids. Of course chloe's great but she's a hell of a lot more wooden than we're used to, and the other kid is just a bit shit. It'll be another Philosopher's Stone, ie. technically marvellous but lacking. Less marketable than potter More

I'm kind of curious to see this movie, but that has to be the most awkward editing for a trailer I think I've seen in a long while... More

Praying for this film to be good
This trailer leaves me a bit underwhelmed because of my extremely high hopes for the film, it is my favorite book and when i found out it was being directed by one of the most acclaimed directors alive today i was very happy. I hope when December rolls around I'll be satisfied with the adaptation. More

Chloe Moretz
She just doesn't stop, does she? A ridiculous level of talent. More

Scorsese
Not so sure.....it has the magic and charm nailed down, and would be worth a look-in, but I can't help but feel it's just going to be another kid's adventure tale. Scorsese should stick to crime. More

Trailer Music
The music may be in the Legend of the Guardians trailer, but it is called Kings and Queens by 30 Seconds to Mars. More

RE: Hugo Trailer Is Here
This trailer exudes the charm and magic that such a story needs. Needless to say, it'll be very interesting and potentially very rewarding to see Scorsese's first foray into both 3D and family films. More

Does it have to be Raging Bull?
I will certainly be taking my family to watch this. Never thought I'd say that for a film by Marty. More

Not exactly Raging Bull
But if Scorsese is involved, it's always worth a look, right? More
