Tom Hooper is bringing the awesome musical “Les Misérables” to the large cinema screen. The take on the movie is different than many stage productions brought to the screen and seems much grittier as a result. The actors end up looking much more drawn, tired, worn down and basically as dirty as you would expect from someone of the time.
This “Les Misérables” trailer starts to show what we will see come Christmas 2012. Anne Hathaway is at the center of the trailer signing a haunting version of I Dreamed a Dream. It makes you feel the sadness of her character quite starkly. It’s easy to see how this will have Oscar nomination written all over it.
The trailer takes us from Hathaway through the other stars in the movie including Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe. And we also see Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne and Samantha Barks along the way.
But the star of this Les Miserables Trailer is Hathaway with her downtrodden look and haunting song.
Enjoy the trailer.
