Well, I guess that confirms the name change. It’s been quite a day for posters. Just like The Dark Knight Rises, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, and John Carter, the first trailer for Martin Scorsese‘s 3D family film Hugo will premiere this Friday with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2. The trailer has been described as “an interesting mix of Oliver Twist and The Polar Express” and should be online later this week.
We, of course, get a debut poster to go along with it. Coming Soon snapped a photo of the poster, which can be seen below. This seems like very much a teaser poster, so there isn’t much to comment on until we see the trailer. There is a friendly vibe, as expected from a family film like this. It is also touting 3D, which I’m excited to see in the hands of Scorsese as he “rethinks cinema.”
Adapted from the Caldecott-winning Brian Selznick novel by Academy Award-nominated screenwriter John Logan (“Gladiator,” “The Aviator”), “Hugo Cabret” is the story of a resourceful boy who lives in a train station and teams up with a spirited young girl to solve a mystery that is based in his past and affects both of their futures.
Starring Asa Butterfield, Chloe Moretz, Sacha Baron Cohen, Ben Kingsley, Jude Law and Emily Mortimer, Hugo hits theaters November 23rd in 3D.

Genre film fans are likely familiar with writer Alex Garland‘s output over the last decade and a half. He made his name with a splash when his novel was adapted into the backpacking adventure thriller The Beach in 2000 and struck again with screenplay for 28 Days Later which some credit as the fire that helped reignite […]
