Poll Question: Which upcoming 2011 Steampunk movie are you looking forward to seeing?

Looking forward towards the projected movies for the remainder of 2011, I was intrigued that the latter half of the year has three Steampunk movies (or at least productions with a Steampunk bent to them) coming to the screens.  I was debating as to which one would be the most anticipated, so I figured it would be a perfect poll question!  The movies in question are: The Three Musketeers (opening in October, 2011), The Invention of Hugo Cabaret (opening in November, 2011), and Sherlock Holmes 2: A Game of Shadows (opening in December).  I’ll simply provide the movie, trailers, and associated links, (without *too* much chatter), then feel free to vote on the sidebar!

As mentioned previously, the new Three Musketeers is a tad prior to what many consider the classic Steampunk timeline, but the movie has a plethora of Steampunk tropes, including what appears to be an outstanding airship battle!

The exceptional Caldecott winning children’s book, The Invention of Hugo Cabret (or as its being “rebranded” as “Hugo“), is also a tad outside the classic Steampunk era, but the immensely popular book involves an orphan who maintains clocks in a Paris train station – I won’t divulge any more beyond that tidbit, but there is a classic Steampunk aspect to this production as well.  Mr. Martin Scorese will be directing this movie, but alas, I was unsuccessful in locating any video footage of this work, thus I’ve chosen to include this indepenent work reagarding the book itself…
Projected to be released in December, Sherlock Holmes 2: A Game of Shadows, staring the previous cast, but with the addition of Holmes’ nemesis Professor Moriaity, is certain to be an outstanding affair.  This movie is actually placed in the Victorian era, and just so happens the newest trailer was recently released (located below), so please do enjoy!

I am tempted to vote for the Holmes movie simply because they have not jumped on the "In 3-D!!" bandwagon.
The Invention of Hugo Cabret is a huge tome composed mostly of drawings. About as 2D as it comes…


I am so looking forward to Sherlock Holmes 2. The first one was excellent, this one looks even better!
