Universal Pictures has unveiled the trailer for the big screen adaptation of "Les Miserables," starring Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Helena Bonham Carter, and Sacha Baron Cohen. Check it out below.
Plot: Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, the film 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.
The new movie is directed by Tom Hooper, the Oscar-winning helmer of "The King's Speech." It is set to hit theaters on December 14th.
Don't know about Hathaway's delivery, but the film looks awesome! The prostitutes in the Lovely Ladies number look EPIC.

I think Hathaway sounds amazing. Totally captures the harrowing despair of Fantine's character. The images look great, costumes, set designs etc. Looking forward to it as musicals in cinema are a dying art.
