Martin Scorsese's Hugo loses the Cabret, gains a poster

07.12.2011

Let me slip into Jerry Seinfeld for a minute here and ask what's the deal with the shortening of movie titles these days? First JOHN CARTER OF MARS is now JOHN CARTER and today Scorsese's HUGO CABRET is just HUGO? Do people have so much ADD where they can't read three four words in a row?

In any case, ComingSoon snapped this photo of the first poster for HUGO. Doesn't exactly look like your typical Scorsese film, and the plot synopsis would reinforce that notion.

The film tells the tale of an orphan boy living a secret life in the walls of a Paris train station. When Hugo encounters a broken automaton, 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.

I'm extremely curious to see a Scorsese children's film, but if I had to judge by the name, plot and poster, it looks like a questionable Zemeckis joint right now.

Extra Tidbit: At least it's not mo-cap. I hope.

Scorsese is usually great so as long it's not mo-cap (which I hate more than any other trend in Hollywood right now) I'll see it. Plus, Chloe Moretz is one of the stars and she's great.

I'm curious to see how he uses the 3D technology. I also am scared about "Tintin" in 3D. Spielberg is my favorite, but I saw an IMAX 3D trailer and the whole thing looked dark and dim, whereas all the other 3D trailers (Puss in Boots comes to mind) look bright and clear.

Coming Soon: Martin Scorsese's "H"!

Working concierge at a theater has shown me how people really can't remember movie titles. If it's something like Transformers, no problem... but I can't count on my fingers how many different names people tried to ask me about "Just Go With It". Even single-worders like "Unknown" and "Zookeeper" are getting butchered while parents bringing their children opt for "the one about the cars" instead of "Cars 2". And if I say "First Class" to someone without saying "X-Men" before it, forget about

Still, Scorsese.

Don't particularly care for this poster, but Scorsese gets the benefit of the doubt. Also, it's not mobcap, it's not even animated. For all I know this is regular live action

Boring poster, but the book this is based on is fantastic and could easily be right up Scorsese's alley considering the connections to Georges Melies and cinematic history.
