Martin Scorsese' next film, 'Hugo' now has a trailer, but what do you think of it?
it feels like a mixed up teaser trailer for a small indie film has been pushed through the system and ended up as an unfinished final trailer. Sasha Baron Cohen's character hardly amuses, and this trailer from the mastermind behind 'Taxi Driver' among others' feels like it's had a knock back before it's even had time to get going.
Trailers cost a lot of money for studios, and when they're bad it is a shame, almost unintentionally casting a shadow over the film. A team in advertising has cleared this, and their work is a representation of a legend's latest film, so hopefully their edit of the footage for the trailer isn't a true to source piece, and this teaser is forgotten in due time.
It may sound like I'm being spiteful, but it is a set back, as I've personally been looking forward to the next film from one of my inspirations in life. It's Scorsese's first attempt in 3d, it's a child's Christmas film, and it's from the man who gave us the atmosphere in 'Gangs of New York', 'Raging Bull' and Goodfellas', This trailer just doesn't convey to me what I thought it would
Hugo is set for a release this year on December 2nd in 3D and 2D.
