After months of photography in Paris and London, here's our first look at Sacha Baron Cohen as the train station inspector and Ben Kingsley as silent French filmmaker Georges Méliès in Martin Scorsese's adaptation of Brian Selznick's best-selling children's historical fiction book, "The Invention Of Hugo Cabret."

The duo are part of an incredible cast led by Asa Butterfield and Chloë Moretz with the supporting cast featuring Christopher Lee, Emily Mortimer, Sacha Baron Cohen, Jude Law Michael Stuhlbarg, Emily Mortimer, Ray Winstone, Frances de la Tour and Richard Griffiths. The film marks Scorsese's first venture into the world of 3D filmmaking described by long-time editor Thelma Schoonmaker as "a whole new kind of film for us" that is "very visual [with] very little dialogue."

Adapted for the screen by John Logan ("The Aviator," "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street"), the 1931-set film follows the story of the eponymous orphan boy living a secret life in the walls of a Paris train station. When Hugo encounters a broken machine, an eccentric girl, and the cold, reserved man who runs the toy shop, he is caught up in a magical, mysterious adventure that could put all of his secrets in jeopardy.

We're admittedly very jaded with the whole 3D phenomenon but with Scorsese behind the camera (even if he's working things out as he goes) and this cast? Count us in. "Hugo Cabret" is currently still lensing in London and is scheduled to hit theaters on December 9th, 2011. [Facebook via BlackBook]
