This is a pretty good visual choice for the new family film, Hugo, hinting at the fantastical adventure that awaits you at the cinema.

However, Daily Billboard can't help but feel it would have also made for a fantastic 3D installation too. You can just imagine a mannequin hanging in the place of 'Hugo Cabret' from the clock face, like these billboards for Universal Studio Hollywood's King Kong attraction from earlier this year.
