"Hugo" is Martin Scorsese’s adaptation of Brian Selznick’s young-adult book, "The Invention of Hugo Cabret," about a young orphan’s quest to solve the mystery of an automaton (inspired by the true story of filmmaker Georges Méliès, who collected the mechanical figures). The 3-D film follows the boy, Hugo (Asa Butterfield), as he befriends Isabelle (played by Chloe Grace Moretz) on his adventures inside a Paris train station.
"Hugo" is 126 minutes long and also stars Ben Kingsley and Sacha Baron Cohen. The screenplay is by John Logan, adapted from Selznick’s book.
Scorsese bought the rights to "Hugo" after his own daughter fell in love with the book. Will the film, a rare PG-rated turn by the director (and his first foray into 3-D), fare well at the box office? Read some reviews below.
