Watch: Tom Hooper's 'Les Miserables' Gets a Moving Second Trailer
"Who was that girl?" Universal has finally debuted a full-length theatrical trailer to make a final push for the epic musical adaptation of Les Miserables, directed by Oscar winner Tom Hooper. This is the trailer I was waiting for, as it gives us a more straightforward look at the story, the characters, and the spirit of this musical. Everything about it looks wonderful. Hugh Jackman stars as Valjean, with Anne Hathaway as Fantine, Russell Crowe as Javert, and Isabelle Allen as the young Cosette, shown prominently in this. It's a new UK trailer, so stand by for updates, or the US version. But this one is definitely worth watching.
