Anyone coming off a Best Picture win will certainly have high expectations for their follow-up, but as The King’s Speech director Tom Hooper takes on a classic, it’s safe to say he’s got his work cut out for him. Adapting Victor Hugo‘s classic novel in musical form, Universal is aiming for Les Miserables to be on of December’s major event and after a teaser, a new full-length trailer surely sells it.
Coming from the UK, this trailer expands further than just Anne Hathaway belting it out, as co-stars Russell Crowe and Hugh Jackman also get a chance in the spotlight, along with some of the supporting cast. Check it out below for the film also starring Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne, Aaron Tveit, Samantha Barks, Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen.
Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Miserables 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.
Les Miserables arrives Christmas Day.

In theaters now, Ivan Reitman‘s new film, Draft Day, does quite a bit with a hard subject. Part of that is the writing, but a lot of the success on screen is due to the amassing of talent Reitman manages and the flash he implants into ordinary scenes. The life of a GM during a tumultuous and pressure-packed [...]
