It's not often you'd put silent film star Harold Lloyd in the same sentence as a children's movie, but that's what makes Martin Scorsese's upcoming 3D adventure 'Hugo' so special. The film -- based on the book by Brian Selznick -- is a master class on film history designed to charm cinephiles and their kids in equal measure. This brand-new poster for the Paramount release highlights that dichotomy, as star Asa Butterfield clings to a clock-hand in a way that recalls Lloyd's silent-era classic 'Safety Last!' Check it out ahead.
