Behind The Scenes


About The Film

Throughout his extraordinary career, Academy Award-wining director Martin Scorsese has brought his unique vision and dazzling gifts to life in a series of unforgettable films. This holiday season the legendary storyteller invites you to join him on a thrilling journey to a magical world with his first-ever 3-D film, based on Brian Selznick's award-winning, imaginative New York Times best-seller, "The Invention of Hugo Cabret."

"Hugo" is the astonishing adventure of a wily and resourceful orphan boy whose quest to unlock a secret left to him by his father will transform Hugo and all those around him, and reveal a safe and loving place he can call home.

The Cast

"Hugo" stars Academy Award® winner Ben Kingsley (Shutter Island), Sacha Baron Cohen (Bruno), Asa Butterfield (The Boy in the Striped Pajamas), and Chloë Grace Moretz (Kick-Ass).

Also appearing in the all-star cast are Academy Award® nominee Jude Law (Sherlock Holmes), Ray Winstone (London Boulevard), Christopher Lee (Lord of the Rings), Helen McCrory (“The Special Relationship”), Frances de la Tour ("Alice In Wonderland"), and Richard Griffiths ("The History Boys").

The Filmmakers

"Hugo," directed by Martin Scorsese, is based on Brian Selznick’s captivating and imaginative New York Times bestseller "The Invention of Hugo Cabret." The screenplay for the film is by John Logan and the film is produced by Scorsese, Graham King, Tim Headington, and Johnny Depp.

"Hugo" re-teams Scorsese, King, and Logan, all of whom worked together on "The Aviator." It also reunites Scorsese with several of his longtime collaborators, including director of photography Robert Richardson (“Shutter Island,” “Inglourious Basterds”), production designer Dante Ferretti ("Shutter Island," "Sweeney Todd"), costume designer Sandy Powell ("Shutter Island," "The Young Victoria"), and editor Thelma Schoonmaker (“Shutter Island,” “The Departed”), all multiple-time Oscar® winners, as well as casting director Ellen Lewis (“The Departed,” “The Aviator”).

Executive producers are Emma Tillinger Koskoff, Georgia Kacandes, Christi Dembrowski, Barbara Defina, and David Crockett.
