The week in film: 'Hugo' and 'Footloose'

October 14, 2011 |  3:42 pm

It's been a week of realigning the old with the new. Director Craig Brewer takes on his favorite movie from the 1980s in his revival approach to redoing "Footloose," while veteran helmer Martin Scorsese seems to successfully tackle 3-D in his upcoming kid flick "Hugo."

Nicole Sperling and Steven Zeitchik discuss the first screening of Scorsese's "Hugo" at the New York Film Festival where the auteur's mastery of 3-D was lauded by critics. In the hands of an accomplished filmmaker, does 3-D have a better chance at a resurgence? And what are the commercial prospects for "Footloose," a remake of a popular film, one that doesn't feel all that different from the original?
