Martin Scorsese unveils first “Hugo” trailer


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: If you didn’t know “Hugo” was the latest film by Martin Scorsese, you could easily mistake it as the next film from Steven Spielberg or Terry Gilliam. The visuals. The kid actors. The whimsical adventure, opposed by wacky adults. Scorsese’s “Hugo” easily could out-Spielberg the Beard’s “Tintin” when both are released later this year.

Judge for yourself. The first full trailer has been posted on iTunes, and we have it posted below:

Based on the novel “The Invention of Hugo Cabret,” Scorsese’s film follows a young boy (Asa Butterfield) who lives in a train station and embarks on a mysterious journey with a fellow “orphan” (played by Chloe Moretz). The grown ups along for the ride are Jude Law, Christopher Lee, Sacha Baron Cohen and Ben Kingsley, to name but a few.

It looks fantastic, a step in a completely opposite director for Scorsese, who is coming off the dark, brilliant “Shutter Island” and perhaps sees this as a palette cleanser.

Either way, we’re excited to see “Hugo” when it hits on Nov. 23.
