Stunning New Facial Close-Up Poster for 'Les Miserables' Revealed
Fight. Dream. Hope. Love. Universal has revealed this new poster for Tom Hooper's Les Misérables, the "musical phenomenon" turned into an amazing-looking movie. While the cast features incredible names like Hugh Jackman as Valjean, Anne Hathaway as Fantine, Helena Bonham Carter, Russell Crowe, Sacha Baron Cohen, Eddie Redmayne and Amanda Seyfried, this shows none of them. It's a nod to the original Broadway poster, featuring only the young Cosette with her beautiful eyes. Here it's the same but "live-action". The actress seen is Isabelle Allen as the young Cosette, portrayed older by Seyfried. It's still a stunning image!
If you haven't seen it yet, watch the amazing extended first look at Les Mis showing the "live singing" on set.
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.
