Renowned director Martin Scorsese has a new film, set in 1930s Paris, coming out at Thanksgiving called Hugo. It concerns an orphan who lives in the walls of a train station and involves a mystery of an automaton.

This is the directors first film to be made in 3D. I am not particularly a fan of 3D but when you see the trailers you will notice that some of the well framed shots will work particularly well.

We have here, in this post, the two trailers and a feature where Martin explains the premise of this delightfully photographed movie…
