Hugo

16 Jul

(No, I’m not talking about the awards!)

I love visiting the IMDb; they have such a clean way of advertising the latest upcoming films!  So easy to use.

I happened to be on there tonight, looking for info on the World War Z movie adaptation that’s supposed to come out in 2012 (has anyone read the book, btw?), and I came across a new movie due for November called Hugo.  Here’s how the IMDb describes it:

Set in 1930s Paris, an orphan who lives in the walls of a train station is wrapped up in a mystery involving his late father and an automaton.

I find it interesting that though it’s set in the 30s it goes the more steampunk route with the automatons and whatnot, which is cool.  (Not really sure if Paris lends itself to the sleeker dieselpunk aesthetic anyway.)  Directed by Martin Scorsese (Goodfellas, The Aviator, Shutter Island).

Anyway, it looked interesting so I thought I’d share it, along with the trailer:

What do you all think?

Does this look like an adventure film you would watch?  I know I sure would!

    Oooh! A Scorsese moive? It looks good, though more of a kid’s pic than adult 😉 I like the adventure of it, and the mystery of the machine!

    Yeah! I don’t know if I’ve seen him do a kid’s flick before, so this should be interesting, heh.

    Um… Yes?

    I love kids movies, and of course Steampunk, and this looks like a rollicking good time. 🙂

    I may watch it only because I LOVE Scorcese! I am not a fan of steampunk.

      Heh, the benefits of fan loyalty, I suppose–for Scorsese, anyway.
