Step right up ladies and gentlemen (in November) for Martin Scorsese’s first ever 3D film. That’s right. Hugo Cabret is set to hit theaters on November 23, just in time for all of us turkey-stuffed givers of thanks to waddle to the theaters and see what ol’ Marty’s put together for our viewing pleasure. Sony Pictures had previously set the film for a December release which didn’t satisfy the producers’ desire for a Thanksgiving release. Paramount jumped at the opportunity and now we’ll all have the chance to spend Thanksgiving weekend avoiding Black Friday Sale shit shows by hiding out in a dark theater and experiencing Jude Law in 3D for the first time in our lives. Lovely.
The film also stars Sasha Baron Cohen, Ben Kingsley, Chloe Moretz, and Emily Mortimer and is set in 1930s Paris where a young orphan gets swept into a magical mystery adventure. Law plays the boy’s late father and the film is based off of the award-winning book by Brian Selznick.
