The Magic of Hugo

"If you've ever wondered where your dreams come from…" Paramount has posted an extended 6-minute featurette, certainly in promotion of the Oscars, for Martin Scorsese's Hugo, with eleven Oscar nominations. Many people love the film and have been calling out praise recently (hence my recent discussion on Best Picture), speaking about the film's "magic" and charm, and incredible use of 3D, which enhances those two aspects. This featurette is called The Magic of Hugo and focuses on exactly that, with interviews from many of the nominated crew, including Martin Scorsese. This is a wonderful reminder of how great it is!

Watch the new featurette The Magic of Hugo from Paramount, in high def via YouTube:

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. Paramount released Hugo in 3D on Thanksgiving last year, and it has since gone on to receive eleven Academy Award nominations, and one Golden Globe for Best Director. It'll be available on Blu-Ray at the end of the month.

Great featurette... Paramount is definitely pushing Hugo as much as they can. But I think at this point The Artist cannot be beat for Best Picture.
