We already brought you over six minutes of footage from Tom Hooper‘s upcoming Les Miserables, along with a glowing review, but now our strongest look yet at the musical adaptation has landed. While previous clips have focused on solo performances from our ensemble, everyone comes together in this clip featuring the song One Day More, including Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne, Aaron Tveit, Samantha Barks, Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen.
In other related news, The Wrap lets us know that Barks has booked her next role and it won’t be a big departure from her debut performance.
