NYFF 2011: Martin Scorsese’s ‘Hugo’ Featurette
The Sound On Sight crew has been hard at work covering the New York Film Festival. Over the past week there has been rumors that Martin Scorsese‘s Hugo would be the secret screening, as a ‘work in progress’ print.
The film is Scorsese’s adaptation of the young adult book The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick, and it marks the director’s first attempt at both a family film and 3D. To mark the occasion, Paramount has released a two-minute featurette. I’ve also posted the trailer below for anyone who may have missed it earlier. Enjoy!
Synopsis: 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(R)-winner Martin Scorsese’s first film shot in 3D.
