The great director Martin Scorsese has finally made a movie expressly for children. And even more relevant for the readers of this grandfather clocks blog, he has made a movie whose central theme is the maintenance of large train station clocks, or some might say double-sided grandfather clock time machines.
Hugo opens on Wednesday November 23, and it’s starts include Jude Law, Ray Winstone, and Asa Butterfield as Hugo, who lives his life in a Paris Train Station, as well as the famous Ben Kingsley and Sacha Baron Cohen.
We expect this Hugo film will be a big hit, and not the least reason being because of the featured clock and automata, or grandfather clocks and automatan, that become a theme central to the movie.
The clocks movie will be rated PG, which means that just about everyone can enjoy the inner workings of clocks, grandfather and train station clocks, and automatons.
The movie can be classified as a combination science fiction, fantasy and action and adventure movie. See it while it’s at a theater near you soon. And don’t forget to visit your nearest grandfather clocks dealer near you just before or after seeing the movie. And don’t forget the clocks shaped popcorn.
