Watch a New Featurette for Scorsese's First 3D Film 'Hugo'by: Posted:
An early work-in-progress cut of Martin Scorsese's first 3D film "Hugo" is reportedly being screened at the New York Film Festival tonight.
Starring Chloe Moretz, Asa Butterfield, Jude Law, Ben Kingsley, Ray Winstone, Christopher Lee, and Sacha Baron Cohen (aka Borat), the fantastic-looking, family-oriented film is based on Brian Selznick's novel "The Invention of Hugo Cabret."
Not all of us can make it to the Big Apple, but you can watch this new featurette from Paramount, with clips from the movie and an interview with a visibly excited Martin Scorsese (who just officially killed it with his new HBO documentary "George Harrison: Living in the Material World") talking about his early adventures with the 3D format.
Here's the official synopsis for the film from the studio:
"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."
