The official theatrical poster for Martin Scorsese’s Hugo has been revealed and it features Asa Butterfield as Hugo Cabret hanging from a clock hand inspired by the classic silent films like Harold Lloyd’s Safety Last.
Hugo is an upcoming 3D family adventure drama film based on Brian Selznick’s novel The Invention of Hugo Cabret. The novel is about 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.
The film stars Asa Butterfield, Chloë Grace Moretz, Ben Kingsley, Sacha Baron Cohen, Ray Winstone, Emily Mortimer and Jude Law.
This is Scorsese’s first film shot in 3D and it is due to be released on November 23, 2011.
