Here's our first look at Ben Kingsley and Sacha Baron Cohen in Martin Scorsese’s 3D adaptation of Brian Selznick’s novel The Invention of Hugo Cabret. We got our first look at Chloe Moretz and Asa Butterfield back in August. Also appearing in the all-star cast are Jude Law, Ray Winstone, Christopher Lee, Ben Kingsley, Emily Mortimer, Helen McCrory, Frances de la Tour, and Richard Griffiths.
Everyone in the film looks great so far, and there's no doubt that the film will be great. You can't go wrong with Scorsese and a cast like this.
Here’s the story description:
Orphan, clock keeper, and thief, Hugo lives in the walls of a busy Paris train station, where his survival depends on secrets and anonymity. But when his world suddenly interlocks with an eccentric, bookish girl and a bitter old man who runs a toy booth in the station, Hugo's undercover life, and his most precious secret, are put in jeopardy. A cryptic drawing, a treasured notebook, a stolen key, a mechanical man, and a hidden message from Hugo's dead father form the backbone of this intricate, tender, and spellbinding mystery.
The movie will be released on December 9th 2011. Check out the pics and let us know what you think. Above you will find Sacha Baron Cohen in full costume as the police inspector of the train station where Hugo lives. Below is a image of Ben Kingsley as the toy shop runner in the story Georges Méliès who is also the famous filmmaker.
