The Invention of Hugo Cabret Trailer Released

The first trailer for Martin Scorsese‘s adaptation of The Invention of Hugo Cabret has been released. It will hit theaters at Thanksgiving this year.

Brian Selznick published The Invention of Hugo Cabret in 2007, a 553-page novel with hundreds of illustrations.
