Sacha Baron Cohen, Hugo, Martin Scorsese

We’re still eight days away from the release of Martin Scorsese’s 3D ode to the birth of movies, “Hugo,” and have put up enough photos from the kids-friendly film to make a bootlegged flip-book that could keep you occupied for half your afternoon.

There is a shot of Scorsese directing, and one of him on-camera in a cameo. Most of the pictures include the always-great Chloë Grace Moretz and Hugo himself, Asa Butterfield. But mostly the photos display the richness and texture of "Hugo" that we've heard and read about in reviews; some wonderful costumes, excellent, stunning photography and just a general care and detail that Scorsese puts into all his films.

Sacha Baron Cohen, Richard Griffiths and Emily Mortimer also show up in the images, which highlight the magical ‘30s Paris Scorsese has created in the film.  "Hugo" tells the story of an orphan (Hugo Cabret) who lives in the walls of a train station and is wrapped up in a mystery involving his late father and an automaton.

We were fans of an "unfinished" version of the film that screened at last month’s New York Film Festival describing it as “an enchanting fairytale [and an] affectionate loveletter to cinema,” not to mention we raved about the immersive nature and depth of the 3D. Critics in general seem to be on board so it will be interesting to see how the finished version is received, and if it will play with family audiences and/or the Academy. The film also stars Ben Kingsley, Jude Law, Ray Winstone, Christopher Lee and Michael Stuhlbarg.

"Hugo" arrives in theaters on Wednesday, November 23 right in time for Thanksgiving. Our favorite photo highlights from the plethora of photos delivered below.

    Can't wait for this film! I hope it does well but with twilight happy feet 2 this weekend I fear for it even though it's next week. Twinhards will probably go back for more of that shitfest and no other film will stand a chance for awhile. I though will go see Hugo! I want it to do well! It looks fantastic for kids and adults alike!

    Er, Wray, I've seen it advertised on multiple TV networks for more than two weeks. Who are you and what do you know about predicting its box office?

    Er.....I know nothing of predicting the box office was mere opinion of course. I haven't personally seen a TV promo for this yet and unfortunately I've watched a lot of tv lately.....unless they're strictly airing on ABC family and such. I want this to be a big success for Scorsese and I just assumed the ad campaign would be bigger than what it has been. So I humbly apologize STABLER (SVU reference?) for possibly offending you over my internet comment.
