So I'm wondering how it was/is with ticket sales, both the total and the percentage from 3D. I'm hoping the numbers were huge... (I loved it) and I'm thinking we may have 2 or 3 "3D reference Blurays" in our libraries Christmas 2012 (Avatar, Hugo, and Titanic!?!)

Hugo (2011) - Box Office Mojo
75 Percent Of HUGO's Audience Is Choosing 3D

The film even got positive comments about 3d out of 3d curmudgeon Roger Ebert:

"Hugo" is unlike any other film Martin Scorsese has ever made, and yet possibly the closest to his heart: a big-budget, family epic in 3-D, and in some ways, a mirror of his own life. We feel a great artist has been given command of the tools and resources he needs to make a movie about movies...

Not long ago, I saw a 3-D children's film about penguins. I thought it was a simpleminded use of the medium. Scorsese uses 3-D here as it should be used, not as a gimmick but as an enhancement of the total effect. Notice in particular his re-creation of the famous little film "Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat" (1897), by the Lumiere brothers. You've probably heard its legend: As a train rushes toward the camera, the audience panics and struggles to get out of its way. That is a shot which demonstrates the proper use of 3-D, which the Lumieres might have used had it been available.
