Martin Scorsese’s magical Hugo gets a trailer

“Do you want to have an adventure?”

The first trailer for Martin Scorsese’s magical book adaptation Hugo has been unveiled online.

It starts out as a subdued introduction to the world of Hugo Cabret, then quickly takes a bizarre left turn with an onslaught of action set to the music of 30 Seconds To Mars.

While Asa Butterfield as Hugo makes for something of a plain hero (that’s probably the point), Chloe Moretz slamdunks a British accent (and is cute to boot).

Sacha Baron Cohen, meanwhile, sports another nutty accent, but gets away with it in the context of the film. He sort of reminds us of Tim Curry in Home Alone 2.

As Scorsese’s first attempt at a kiddie audience, Hugo definitely has potential – the cinematography is undeniably lush, and there seems to be a decent mystery involved.

Check out the trailer for yourself below…

Hugo opens 2 December.

      Yikes. I saw this trailer with a big group of friends, and all of us were like, "Huh?!" Very lame.. and I don't think even kids are going to laugh at all of the half-baked pratfall antics and trite dialogue.
