The gang’s all here in a new International trailer for director Tom Hooper’s big-screen adaptation of one of the world’s most popular musical in the history of musicals, “Les Miserables”. I’m not a big musical fan, but even I got all afluttered listening to the music. No wonder people love this musical. If it sounds this good in a movie trailer, I can only imagine it must kill live on stage.
Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, “Les Misérables” tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption–a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. Jackman plays ex-prisoner Jean Valjean, hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert (Crowe) after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine’s (Hathaway) young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever.
Starring Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Eddie Redmayne, Amanda Seyfried, Sacha Baron Cohen, Helena Bonham Carter, Aaron Tveit, Samantha Barks, Isabelle Allen, and living the dream December 25, 2012.
