The first trailer for Les Miserables debuted this morning offering the first look at director Tom Hooper‘s (The King’s Speech) adaptation of Victor Hugo’s age old material starring Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Eddie Redmayne, Amanda Seyfried, Sacha Baron Cohen, Helena Bonham Carter, Aaron Tveit and Samantha Barks.
Told for years and years, Les Miserables is 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.
