My ‘Most Anticipated’ film for 2012 was THE DARK KNIGHT RISES and, in my opinion, it didn’t disappoint. However, my ‘Most Anticipated’ for 2013 will arrive a lot earlier in the year, in the form of LES MISERABLES. If you’ve read my previous LES MIS articles you’ll know how excited I am for this – and I’ve heard from some very lucky sods who’ve seen the film that it will cause a tidal wave of tears!
Here we have two brand new US TV spots to show you, which give us a very brief glimpse into the world of the film. Starring Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne, Samantha Barks, Sacha Baron Cohen and Helena Bonham Carter, this film adaptation of the much-loved stage play is directed by THE KING’S SPEECH leader Tom Hooper. If you’ve seen the extended trailer then you’ll know how much work and dedication has gone into the film, especially in terms of the musical numbers. But if you think that the cast and crew have gone down the lazy, pre-recorded route, then you are mistaken; every song is recorded live, bringing a new intensity to each song whenever there’s a new take.
LES MISERABLES hits US cinemas on Christmas Day (I am very jealous!) and will arrive at UK cinemas from 11th January. Book your tickets now!
