With the promise of the first trailer later today, a slew of new images have emerged from Les Miserables via USA Today, Twitter and The Film Stage, which show us the likes of Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried, Anne Hathaway, Eddie Redmayne & more in the adaptation of the long-running musical.
Tom Hooper is directing the movie, which hits cinemas this Christmas. Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables 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.
