Anne Hathaway Dreams a Dream in First Trailer for Les Misérables

Whoa. Listen to Anne Hathaway. Who knew the little lady had this in her? I didn’t even know she could sing. But apparently she can, and very well, too. Check out the first teaser trailer for “King’s Speech” director Tom Hooper’s latest, the big-screen adaptation of Victor Hugo’s hugely popular play “Les Miserables”. I haven’t been keeping up with the progress of the adaptation, but if Hathaway is singing, I’m guessing everyone else is singing, too, which means this is is a musical? Hunh. Didn’t know that. I really need to keep up with this stuff a little more.

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, and Samantha Barks.

The wretched dares to dream December 14, 2012.

    First time I heard Anne Hathaway sing was in the Oscars a couple of years back. She was siging with (wait for it)… Hugh Jackman! Not only that… they killed!!!

    From that day on I thoguht when there’s goign to be a musical with these two.

    I wans’t really expecting Les Miserables, honestly. I think the version with Liam Nessan was the best so far.

    That’s being said, the cast for the current version had me curious. And now (that I’m almost 100% sure is a musical), I’m even more curious. I mean… Russel Crown? Singing and dancing?

      Russel Crowe has had his own band for a couple of decades, so yes, he can sing :D
