Hugo 3D (Paramount)
Martin Scorsese’s family adventure follows the story of twelve-year-old Hugo (Asa Butterfield) who lives inside the walls of a Parisian train station in the 1930s. His very survival depends on anonymity, but when the enchanting Isabelle (Chloë Moretz) comes into his life, it quickly takes a dramatic twist and soon his most closely guarded secret is put at risk. Winning five Oscars at this year’s Academy Awards including best Visual Effects, Art Direction and Cinematography, Hugo is the perfect Blu-ray to experience in high definition 3D.
The Green Lantern Corps are a brotherhood of warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order.

Starring Ryan Reynolds and directed by Casino Royale’s Martin Campbell, this adaptation of the DC comic is one sci-fi adventure that you won’t want to miss. The vast and mysterious universe that the film is set in looks fantastic in high-def 3D, as does the incredible superpowers of the Green Lantern Corps.
