Les Miserables

The first poster for Tom Hooper's promising adaptation of the classic musical Les Miserables was a fantastic real-life version of the iconic illustration that fans have come to recognize. Then yesterday Hugh Jackman received his own character poster as Jean Valjean. Now Russell Crowe gets the spotlight as the lawman Javert in his own character poster. If you want to see these two stars in action, you can check out the first gorgeous trailer, recent TV spot or the extended behind-the-scenes preview. Hopefully we'll get a full length trailer arriving soon as the musical hits theaters this Christmas. Check out the new poster below!

Here's Russell Crowe's poster for Tom Hooper's Les Miserables via Empire:

Les Miserables - Russell Crowe Poster

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. Excited yet?

I'm a little disappointed there isn't a phrase on this one (as there was on the Hugh Jackman poster). It would've tied them together better. Great photo, though, for this poster.

My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next. -FIXED-
