Here is the debut trailer from Tom Hooper’s film adaptation of Victor Hugo’s 1862 novel and stage musical, ‘Les Misérables.’ UPDATE: Teaser Poster.
The trailer features the most poplar song from the musical, ‘I Dreamed a Dream,’ by Anne Hathaway. She doesn’t sing it like Susan Boyle, but it’s a soft, sweet version of the song, and it really ties the trailer together.
This film is hard for me to nail down. Conventional wisdom would tell you it’s going to be a smash hit, but one can never tell with musicals. Plus, like I wrote earlier this week, there have already been many adaptations of Les Misérables. That’s not to say people won’t be excited about this version, but they may choose to take their families to other highly anticipated films hitting theaters this Christmas. If you have seen the broadway show and other adaptations, you may wait for the BluRay. But who knows?
This film does have an epic cast. When I say epic, I mean that in thirty years, young men and women like me will say, my god that film had a lot of legendary actors. The three leads, Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Anne Hathaway, will all be legends by the time they reach their old age or, god forbid, pass on. So the question will be, are these new faces in the same old roles enough to make you fork over your hard earned money? We will find out this December.
Official Les Misérables Synopsis
Les Misérables is the motion-picture adaptation of the beloved global stage sensation seen by more than 60 million people in 42 countries and in 21 languages around the globe and still breaking box-office records everywhere in its 27th year.
Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption–a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. Jackman plays ex-prisoner Jean Valjean, hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert (Crowe) after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine’s (Hathaway) young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever.
In December 2012, the world’s longest-running musical brings its power to the big screen in Tom Hooper’s sweeping and spectacular interpretation of Victor Hugo’s epic tale. With international superstars and beloved songs–including “I Dreamed a Dream,” “Bring Him Home,” “One Day More” and “On My Own”–Les Misérables, the show of shows, is now reborn as the cinematic musical experience of a lifetime.
