Aurally Charming TV Trailer for Tom Hooper's 'Les Miserables' Lands
"I had a dream my life would be... so different from this hell I'm living!" Time to start your day with some Les Mis. Universal has unveiled a new 90-second TV spot for Les Miserables, the epic movie musical being directed by Tom Hooper. Most of this features a lot of the same footage we've seen in the teaser trailer and the most recent extended first look (when is the second trailer coming?). But it's still wonderful, because this movie looks amazing, I love listening to Anne Hathaway singing on repeat, even without the visuals. Hugh Jackman is also shown quite a bit as Jean Valjean, but none of his singing yet. View below!
Tom Hooper (The King's Speech) is directing Les Miserables, an adaptation of the successful stage musical based on Victor Hugo's classic novel set in 19th-century France, in which a paroled prisoner named Jean Valjean (Hugh Jackman) seeks his redemption. Alain Boublil adapted his own work with Claude-Michel Schonberg, who also wrote the stage musical, Herbert Kretzmer and William Nicholson. The film also stars Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Helena Bonham Carter, Sacha Baron Cohen and Eddie Redmayne and will hit theaters everywhere on December 25th, Christmas Day, this winter. Sounds good!
