Martin Scorsese's Hugo Soundtrack Features 21 Songs By LOTR Composer Howard Shore

Updated on January 13, 2013

Music & Songs Hugo Movie

Cinematic legend Martin Scorsese teams with Lord of the Rings composer Howard Shore to bring Brian Selznick's highly acclaimed book Hugo Cabret to life with the Hugo Soundtrack score consisting of a magical 21 tracks.

Hugo is Martin Scorsese's first 3D movie and the Academy Award winning director is well suited to direct a film adaptation of a book about movies and the history of cinema.

Published in over 30 different countries, Hugo Cabret author Brian Selznick in an interview at Book Expo America 2011 readily admits he "had no idea if anyone would read it" and further, when writing the children's fantasy story, had no idea the movie would be a blockbuster holiday release or even "if kids would want to read a book about French silent movies and clock making."

The weekend's holiday releases when it comes to kids and family movies are loaded with lighter fare that's more accessible to younger kids such as Happy Feet Two, The Muppets and Arthur Christmas. According to BoxOfficeMojo, Paramount is only releasing Hugo into 1,200 theaters vs. the 3,000 theaters for The Muppets & Arthur Christmas.

With strong critical reviews, let's hope after the initial holiday rush at the theaters that for Scorsese's sake, the more artistic Hugo gets the attention it deserves with a wider release and perhaps find a spot to enchant a generation of young movie goers.

Hugo stars Sacha Baron Cohen, Ben Kingsley, Jude Law, Ray Winstone, Christopher Lee, Helen McCrory, Richard Griffiths, Frances de la Tour, Emily Mortimer, Michael Stuhlbarg and Asa Butterfield and Chloe Grace Moretz. Release Date: November 23, 2011.

What's the Song in the Second Hugo Theatrical Trailer? - "Breath and Life" - The Adjustment Bureau

It was driving me crazy trying to figure out what song was playing until I finally figured it out, it's a music cue from trailer music company Audio Machine called "Breath and Life" used extensively in The Adjustment Bureau movie trailers.
