Watch: Short Featurette for Martin Scorsese's 'Hugo' in 3D Unveiled
It was confirmed today that the big Mystery Movie event at the New York Film Festival this evening will be Martin Scorsese's Hugo in 3D, or at least a work in progress showing of the film. In light of the news and screening tonight, Paramount has released a new featurette for the film, featuring Scorsese briefly talking about making this and shooting in 3D for his first time. It's fairly short and includes a small bit of new footage, but check it out anyway. We've already seen one trailer for this, but he's still finishing it up before it hits theaters this Thanksgiving. Starring Asa Butterfield and Chloe Moretz, with Sacha Baron Cohen.
Watch the new featurette for Martin Scorsese's Hugo in 3D, originally via Deadline:
Set in 1930s Paris, an orphan (Asa Butterfield) who lives in the walls of a train station becomes wrapped up in a mystery with his young new friend (Chloe Moretz) that involves his late father and an automaton.
Hugo, originally The Invention of Hugo Cabret, is directed by Oscar winning filmmaker Martin Scorsese, of films like Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Goodfellas, Casino, The Aviator, Gangs of New York, The Departed and Shutter Island most recently. The screenplay was written by John Logan (Gladiator, The Time Machine, The Aviator, Sweeney Todd, Rango, Coriolanus, Bond 23), based on Brian Selznick's book. This was shot in 3D. Paramount is bringing Hugo to theaters everywhere starting November 23rd this fall. Looks good?
I quite like the look of this, will definitely make an effort to see it with my son.

I hate 3-D with a passion, where films require you to sit in the dark with this unnecessary post-production supplement.... but this is a film that has a unique reason for needing 3-D to help tell the story. I am quite anxious to see what Scorsese has delivered.
