First Trailer For Martin Scorsese's Hugo Cabret Will Be Attached To Harry Potter image
We already know youíre going to the eighth and final Harry Potter installment when it opens on July 15. That much is a given. But thanks to the news breaking on Twitter, weíre advising that you get to the theater early, because one trailer in particularís going to pique your interest.

The Twitter feed for Martin Scorseseís next picture, Hugo Cabret, revealed that the filmís first trailer will be attached to Deathly Hallows Part 2. Iím a little confused, as Cabret is a Paramount-distributed feature, with Potter being a Warner franchise. Why not attach the Scorsese trailer to something like Captain America, which will be in theaters weeks later?

Not that Iím complaining too much, as this means weíll get a look at Cabret sooner rather than later. Scorseseís movie comes out on Nov. 23, so a trailer was expected in theaters around this time. But there are so many reasons why weíre excited for THIS trailer, in particular. For starters, itís the iconic filmmakerís first attempt at 3D, and if any director would obsess over how best to use a visual tool like a third dimension, it would be the perfectionist Scorsese. Also, Cabret reteams Marty with screenwriter John Logan, who scored an Oscar nomination for The Aviator, and Iím curious to see how these collaborators have envisioned the era of Paris in the 1930s, which serves as a backdrop for this magical mystery. Scorsese is coming off a brilliant genre exercise in Shutter Island, but Hugo sounds like a complete departure from the directorís comfort zone, and that is exciting. I canít wait to see if the trailer suggests such a thrill.
