Late last week it was announce that the New York Film Festival would be showing a work-in-progress cut from a “master filmmaker” on Monday night.  It would most likely be an awards season heavy-weight, but and there were a variety of films to choose from including War Horse, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.  NYFF has now announced that Martin Scorsese’s 3D family film Hugo will be screening tonight at 7pm in Avery Fisher Hall.  Scorsese has never screened at unfinished version of his film and NYFF hasn’t screened a work-in-progress cut since Beauty and the Beast, but it looks like the Paramount is feeling confident that the movie can generate some serious buzz after its screening tonight.  Deadline reports that the showing will be in 3D but there will still be a few unfinished green-screen effects.

Obviously, we’ll be interested to hear the reaction to the movie later tonight.  For those unfamiliar with the film, hit the jump for the trailer and synopsis.  Hugo opens November 23rd and stars Chloe Moretz, Asa Butterfield, Jude Law, Ben Kingsley, Ray Winstone, Christopher Lee, and Sacha Baron Cohen.

Here’s the official synopsis for Hugo:

Hugo tells the story of an orphan boy living a secret life in the walls of a Paris train station. With the help of an eccentric girl, he searches for the answer to a mystery linking the father he recently lost, the ill-tempered toy shop owner living below him and a heart shaped lock, seemingly without a key. Based on Brian Selznick’s award winning and imaginative New York Times bestseller, The Invention of Hugo Cabret, this magical tale is Academy Award-winner Martin Scorsese’s first film shot in 3D.
