Book Into Movie: HUGO

This is the first post of a new category here on Books, Bones & Buffy, where I am going to recommend movies that have been successfully translated from some of my favorite books.  You may not realize it from reading this blog, but I love movies almost as much as I love books, which means I love good movies.  Just released this past Wednesday is Hugo, directed by Martin Scorsese, and based on the book The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick.  I recently reviewed Selznick’s latest, Wonderstruck, and I suspect it’s no coincidence that the movie has been released right on the heals of its publication.  Although I haven’t seen it yet, Hugo got rave reviews from my friend Wendy, not to mention a great rating from Entertainment Weekly, so I’m very excited to see it.

I also have to mention that Jude Law is in the movie, whom I love, and Chloë Grace Moretz, from Kickass, who is just amazing.  The movie is in 3D (only, I believe) so get ready to pay a little extra for the ticket. Hopefully, it will be worth it.

Here’s the trailer:

See you at the movies!

  1. We’re excited to see Hugo too, though none of us have read the book. I see it’s getting great reviews! Fun new feature, Tammy. There’s no shortage of book to movie adaptations, though it’s hard to find the good ones :)

  2. I agree, Lucy. I know of one other movie adaptation I’m dying to see, and I know you are too (starts with Hunger, ends with Games!).
