Though it was expected that Martin Scorsese next movie would be Silence, now I can say for sure there is another movie coming out; Hugo Cabret.
I’m not a fan of 3D despite being quite nice to see certain movies shot with this new technology. But it is Scorsese here, and when he says that he actually wasn’t that impressed by what he saw in “Avatar” and “Alice In Wonderland” and that he wanted to push the format further, it is something to be curious about.
Originally scheduled to hit theaters on December 9th Deadline reports that the film has now moved up a couple of weeks to hit theaters on the very, very busy and competitive Thanksgiving weekend date of November 23rd. In fact opening the same weekend there are Project X and Rise Of The Apes with James Franco.
But the competition will mainly be with the animated (and also 3D) Arthur Christmas as well as the star-studded The Muppets toplined by Jason Segel and Amy Adams.
With Asa Butterfield and Chloë Moretz as lead roles, and a starry cast including Sacha Baron Cohen, Ben Kingsley, Christopher Lee, Emily Mortimer, Sacha Baron Cohen, Jude Law, Michael Stuhlbarg, Emily Mortimer, Ray Winstone, Frances de la Tour and Richard Griffiths, the film is an adaptation of Brian Selznick‘s best-selling children’s historical fiction book, “The Invention Of Hugo Cabret,.”
The 1931-set film follows the story of the eponymous orphan boy living a secret life in the walls of a Paris train station. When Hugo encounters a broken machine, an eccentric girl, and the cold, reserved man who runs the toy shop, he is caught up in a magical, mysterious adventure that could put all of his secrets in jeopardy. Sounds like lot of fun and considering Arthur Christmas is a holiday movie and The Muppets is loaded with familiar faces, it will sure be a tough competition.
