As Graham King told us a few days back, casting a Martin Scorsese film is far from the hardest part of the process. With the director's legendary status now cemented by a long-overdue Best Director Oscar for "The Departed" a few years ago, top actors are delighted to line up, even if it's for a brief cameo, in a Scorsese-helmed project. The filmmaker's latest, "Hugo," is no exception. Its young leads, Asa Butterfield and Chloe Grace Moretz, are among the most widely-praised child actors of recent years, and the supporting cast ranges from Oscar-winner Sir Ben Kingsley to comic whirlwind Sacha Baron Cohen, with Jude Law, Emily Mortimer, Ray Winstone, Richard Griffiths, Frances De La Tour, Helen McCrory and Michael Stuhlbarg among the litany of other stars cropping up at some point.

New posters have popped up for the war-centric films "In the Land of Blood and Honey" and "This Means War."
