Picture of the Week #58: Ben Kingsley as George Méliès in Hugo Cabret

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Spectacular Attractions has been following the progress of Martin Scorsese’s adaptation of Brian Selznick’s The Invention of Hugo Cabret since it was announced. It’s based on a beautiful book, has a top-notch cast, promises to re-imagine the possible uses of 3D, and best of all, it’s partly about one of my favourite film-makers, Georges Méliès. I’m hoping there’ll be some dazzling reconstructions of famous moments from his films. The casting for the role also looks to be an excellent choice, if these images of Ben Kingsley as both the young and the elderly Méliès are anything to go by.

  2. Thanks Dan. Lovely.

    I’m sure Marty will be creating the new century’s A TRIP TO THE MOON with 3D. And the protag will be a man like Howard Hughes, pushing himself towards destruction and glory like crazy. But I sure hope that’s not all.
