Les Miserables – New Teaser Trailer and Images

In theaters December 14, 2012

The long-running classic Broadway musical, Les Miserables, is making its way onto the big screen with an all-star cast. Hugh Jackman (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Reel Steel) stars as Jean Valjean, a thief hunted down for years by Officer Jarvet, played by Oscar-Winning Actor Russell Crowe (Gladiator, Body of Lies). Anne Hathaway (Love and Other Drugs, Dark Knight Rises) plays factory worker Fantine, and Amanda Seyfried (In Time, Gone) plays the older version of her daughter Cosette. Eddie Redmayne (The Good Shepherd, My Week with Marilyn) plays Marius, a young soldier who falls in love with Cosette.

My only worry is that this movie will be really long and boring. I remember reading the book for a high school English class, and that was a task in itself. I never got to watch the musical on Broadway, but long and boring is a complaint I’ve heard about it many times before. I don’t know. I think it should be good considering the cast and the classic music. I always love a good musical, so here’s to hoping!

Below is a brand new teaser trailer featuring Anne Hathaway singing the classic “I Dreamed a Dream.” There are also several new stills featuring Jackman, Crowe, Seyfried, Hathaway and Redmayne.
