We'll still have to wait six months for the feature film adaptation of the mega-hit stage musical 'Les Miserables' but until then we can finally enjoy the first trailer and production stills offering glimpses of the production.
The film stars Hugh Jackman (Jean Valjean), Russell Crowe (Javert), Anne Hathaway (Fantine), Amanda Seyfried (Cosette), Helena Bonham Carter (Madame Thenardier), Sacha Baron Cohen (Thenardier), Eddie Redmayne (Marius), Samantha Barks (Eponine) and Aaron Tveit (Enjolras).
The trailer features Hathaway's vocals of "I Dreamed A Dream" and brief shots of the other actors except for Carter and Cohen. Many moviegoers may not know that Jackman has a successful musical stage career but the bigger curiosity will be Crowe's vocals. We'll just have to wait to see if a second trailer includes vocals by the other actors.
The musical is sung through so it's hard to judge the sound of the film by this snippet to song. But the film looks epic in scale.
