Martin Scorsese’s Hugo is the director’s first ever 3D film. Based on Brian Selznick’s The Adventures of Hugo Cabaret, the film marks a departure from the adult-orientated fare we have become accustomed to from Scorsese. An interesting but tenuously related fact: several months ago I was at post-production studio De Lane Lea for a screening. As I was getting a drink at the bar, I was told Christopher Lee had just walked through to leave, but I didn’t him as I was facing the opposite way. Lee was recording voice work for Hugo, apparently. It is perhaps a good thing I was not aware, as I probably would have shouted “There’s Dracula!”, or something equally inappropriate. We can see how Christopher Lee’s performance turns out when Hugo is released in cinemas on 2nd December 2011.
