Les Miserables – Trailer, Images5.06.12 # Trailers # One Comment
Director of The King’s Speech, Tom Hooper, is bringing Victor Hugo’s novel Les Miserables to the silver screen as a musical, after decades of enduring popularity as a stage production internationally. A prestigious follow-up for the prestigious filmmaker, and one sure to delight millions worldwide with its story of misery. We finally have a good look at a number of the cast members, take a gander at Wolverine, Jor-El and Catwoman in lavish period costuming below!
Hugh Jackman leads the all-star cast as Jean Valjean, a sometime prisoner sometime businessman who struggles with the law. The cast are providing their own vocal talents to the production, but not just recording them and miming on-set, ACTUALLY SINGING ON SET, take after take. Hopefully ensuring that their performances reflect those efforts. I think that’s a pretty cool move, and hope that it can set a new standard for musicals, which have gained popularity but lost credibility in recent times. Thanks High School Musical. Les Miserables (Les Mis to the familiar) is set to hit screens this winter.
