Martin Scorsese's 'Hugo' Gets A Heart-Shaped Key & 'The Thing' Isn't Human (Yet) On New Posters

Well, it's officially official. Due to some pretty boneheaded decision made up in a studio executive's office, Martin Scorsese's "Hugo Cabret" has indeed dropped half of the title to become simply "Hugo." Likely terrified that audiences might not know how to pronounce that six-letter word and fearing that it would lead to audiences abandoning the film altogether, it's yet another example of big Hollywood treating their customers like morons. Anyway, it appears that posters are now popping up in multiplexes across the nation as ComingSoon snapped a picture of one in Los Angeles. It features Isabelle's heart-shaped key that proves to be a major component of the story as told in Brian Selznick's award-winning book, on which the film is based. Led by Asa Butterfield and Chloë Moretz, with a cast including Sacha Baron Cohen, Ben Kingsley, Christopher Lee, Emily Mortimer, Jude Law, Michael Stuhlbarg, Emily Mortimer and Ray Winstone 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. It opens on November 23rd, and yes, it's in 3D

Meanwhile, after suffering a bit of a release date shuffle -- it was originally planned to hit theaters this spring -- to undergo some reshoots and effects work, Universal is finally ready to unveil the prequel to "The Thing" that is still, for whatever reason, titled "The Thing." Directed by newcomer Matthis van Heijningen Jr. and starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Joel Edgerton, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Eric Christian Olsen the film will tell the story of the Norwegian team and the origins of the titular creature, with events largely taking place before the story of John Carpenter's movie. Until we see the trailer, we're not sure what to think of this one but the official poster is pretty badass. The movie will hit on October 14th.

Check out both posters in full below.
