Take A Gander At 15 High-Res Pictures From Tom Hooper’s “Les Miserables”
We are still a fair bit away from Tom Hooper‘s Les Miserables starring Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway and Eddie Redmayne, however we have already seen a poster, a pretty kick-ass teaser trailer and now we are getting a bunch of photos of various scenes of the film.
So far I very much like what I am seeing. Having grown up in musical theatre, this particular holds a special place in my heart and I have seen it countless times. Hooper seems to be bringing the iconic musical to the big screen in a proper respectful way. And that makes me very, very happy and extremely eager to catch it this December.
Enjoy the pics.
About the Film
Les Misérables 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 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.
Based on the Stage Musical from Boublil and Schönberg’s Les Misérables from the novel by Victor Hugo, a screenplay by William Nicholson, Alain Boublil, Claude-Michel Schönberg and Herbert Kretzmer with music by Claude-Michel Schönberg & lyrics by Herbert Kretzmer, Tom Hooper’s musical epic will be in theaters December 14, 2012.
