Watch: First Teaser Trailer for Tom Hooper's 'Les Misérables' Debuts
"I dreamed a dream…" Universal has debuted the first teaser trailer for Tom Hooper's Les Misérables musical adaptation, starring Hugh Jackman as prisoner Jean Valjean and Anne Hathaway as Fantine in the big screen version. We also get glimpses of Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried, Samantha Barks as Éponine and Eddie Redmayne. MSN debuted this first teaser trailer, which primarily features Hathaway singing "I Dreamed a Dream" on top of Hooper's spectacular visuals. She sounds pretty damn good. It looks like an epicly grand, magnificent, visually wonderful musical and I'm sure it will be an event this fall. Enjoy!
