Not since Susan Boyle sang, “I Dreamed A Dream” on Britain’s Got Talent have I heard it sung so beautifully as Anne Hathaway does in the new trailer for Les Misérables. The video, which also shows clips of hunky co-stars Russell Crowe and Hugh Jackman, was released this morning and has already become a top entertainment story.
(Take that Miami Zombie!)
An adaptation of the successful stage musical based on Victor Hugo’s classic novel set in 19th-century France, in which a paroled Prisoner 24601, Jean Valjean (Jackman), is released from prison and breaks parole to create a new life for himself while evading the grip of the persistent Inspector Javert (Crowe). Set in early 19th-century France, the story reaches resolution against the background of the July Revolution of 1832.
The film also stars Amanda Seyfried, Sacha Baron Cohen, Helena Bonham Carter, and Eddie Redmayne.
Watch for Les Misérables in theaters December 14th, 2012.
