It has been a while since we’ve seen anything from Martin Scorsese‘s upcoming 3D family adventure “Hugo.” Granted, the director has been busy executive producing “Boardwalk Empire,” putting the finishing touches on the massive documentary “George Harrison: Living In The Material World” as well as editing Kenneth Lonergan‘s “Margaret.” However, the first trailer for the film was released in July and is now somewhat of a distant memory, but with the movie gearing up to land next month the marketing campaign is likely just moments away from starting in full swing.
Overseas in Lyon, France the 66th Congress Of The National Federation Of French Cinema — a fancy title given to industry conference — recently wrapped up, and essentially, it was a confab where industry types spend a few days getting a sneak peek at films that are set to hit theaters in the next little while. Filmgeek were on hand on managed to snag a couple of new stills from “Hugo.” The first is a new look at Ben Kingsley who plays legendary silent filmmaker Georges Méliès, and yes, the director did actually run a toy store after his movie company collapsed. Next up we see Jude Law in his role as Hugo’s father opposite the rising young actor Asa Butterfield. The whimsical nature of the film displayed in the trailer is certainly still intact and we’re as curious as ever to see what Scorsese brings to his first movie aimed squarely at younger audiences.
Chloe Moretz, Sacha Baron Cohen, Christopher Lee, Michael Stuhlbarg, Emily Mortimer, Ray Winstone and more round out the cast. “Hugo” hits theaters on November 23rd. Full images below.
