Martin Scorsese's Hugo is today's iTunes gift in the US, the rest of the world gets Home Alone
The movie, which is the first Scorsese film shot in 3D, is based on the novel The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick. It tells the story of Hugo, an orphan who lives in a Parisian railway station and maintains its clocks. His dead father taught him how to repair mechanical devices, and left him with a mechanical man that doesn't work without a special key. The rest of the movie is all about figuring out the secret of the automation, which takes the boy and his company on a magical ride that pays homage both to fantasy, and the art of movie-making itself.
Hugo can be downloaded from the link below. It's 2 hours and 6 minutes long, and is available in 4.31GB 720p and 1.85GB SD downloads. Apple also gives away an iTunes Extras behind-the-scenes feature on the film, which includes interviews with cast and crew.
