Official Trailer for Tom Hooper’s ‘Les Miserables’ Film Released
Director Tom Hooper, best known for his Oscar-winning film The King’s Speech, is launching a new feature adaptation of the classic musical, Les Miserables, based on Victor Hugo’s novel of the same name.
Hooper has an all-star cast to back him up. Viewers can look forward to seeing Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean, Russell Crowe as Inspector Javert, Amanda Seyfried as Cosette, Eddie Redmayne as Marius, and Samantha Barks — no, not Taylor Swift — as Eponine.
The film is set to hit theaters on December 14, 2012. Here’s a quick taste — underscored by Hathaway’s chilling version of the famous showtune, “I Dreamed A Dream.”
