Some people were wondering why we haven’t heard Russell Crowe singing in the trailers for Les Miserables or why we hadn’t really seen Sacha Baron Cohen or Helena Bonham Carter. Well, wonder no more, the second full trailer for the film has arrived and it features all you ever wanted.
Obviously the conversation surrounding this film is to wonder just how many Oscar nominations it will receive and will it be able to take home the top prize as many, including myself, have predicted from the start. Watch this latest trailer and see if it helps you make up your mind.
Les MisÃ©rables is the motion-picture adaptation of the beloved global stage sensation seen by more than 60 million people in 42 countries and in 21 languages around the globe and still breaking box-office records everywhere in its 27th year. Helmed by The King’s Speech‘s Academy Award-winning director, Tom Hooper, the Working Title/Cameron Mackintosh production stars Hugh Jackman, Oscar winner Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway and Eddie Redmayne.
Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les MisÃ©rables 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.
In December 2012, the world’s longest-running musical brings its power to the big screen in Tom Hooper’s sweeping and spectacular interpretation of Victor Hugo’s epic tale. With international superstars and beloved songs–including “I Dreamed a Dream,” “Bring Him Home,” “One Day More” and “On My Own”–Les MisÃ©rables, the show of shows, is now reborn as the cinematic musical experience of a lifetime.
