Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Les Miserables
What a comedown from The King's Speech!
Ugly, sentimental, and tuneless.
Not a film on which I will waste a second of time.
I love Les MIz and do get chills hearing the music. However, as much as I think Anne H. is a beautiful actress, her voice is not that powerful or has as much depth as it should for this part. I hope I am wrong as looking forward to movie.
A trailer does not a movie make! Let's wait and see. More often than not transferring Broadway to the screen just doesn't make it but there is the rare exception (Chicago comes to mind) that equals the Broadway effort, and there are a few others as well.
Hope it is great but the show is in the music and if that fails................
I have the chills watching this and hearing the music. This is Oscar material for sure. I saw the last Les Miz here in St Louis at the Fox three years ago and it was even better than the previous ones, but this movie will be fantastic! A great cast. I can hardly wait until December...what a Christmas treat this is going to be!
I just watched this trailor, Hathaway sings here and her voice is NOT strong or good enough to pull this off, she sounded weak and washed out, ugh. Live in NYC, saw the original Broadway production twice years ago, it was amazing! Hollywood actors cannot pull this off, even after they do 30 or more takes (haha sad but true) for each scene, BUT Broadway actors do it LIVE night after night with much more awesome voices and talent. This should have been left alone and not made again, cannot compare to the stage version's talents.
The Les Mis movie was already made, Uma Thurman was in it, the entire cast was excellent, WHY do they have to remake everything? Yes Hugh Jackman is great, but again, WHY do they have to remake everything when it's already been done, it's ridiculous.
That version wasn't a musical. It was a very good movie though.
I'm so there!!! Seen it on Broadway, read the book, heard the radio version, seen it with Liam Neeson... die hards. This looks like it will do Les Mis some justice!
I saw the bway play , & though rare amongs opinions, did not care for it. The film versions however where rich, which I feel the musical did not portray. Couldn't understnand how anyone could get the essence of the story from the musical, having seen both the original Victor Hugo version, and the updated one with Liam Neison. Love Hugh Jackman in just about anything.This looks interesting & I do hope there is dialogue, and was done as good as the film version of Phantom, which I enjoyed. Hugh Jackman has a great voice. missed him in his Boy from Oz show, cause Im not a big fan of show toons, per se. Doesn't deflect his singing chops. Can't wait to see this
Can't believe that anything could top Liam Neeson and Goeffrey Rush...but this looks so promising! Can't wait!
I absolutely cannot wait to see this! I LOVE Les Mis: the soul-stirring music and heartwrenching story. I'll be at that theatre opening night with my box of tissues!
i hope i'm wrong about this
I saw the revival of Les Miz on Broadway a few years ago. While the critics were less than supportive, i thought it was great.
The story is great--but the music is what makes it unforgettable. So the cast must be able to sing
Rather than Hathaway, i would have had Lea Michelle or similar. The music will bring you to tears.
I agree. I think Hathaway has a lovely voice but I wonder if its strong enough to pull off 'I Dreamed a Dream'. It looked like an intense scene and it was only a snippet so we'll see. I've already heard Lea Michelle's version on 'Glee' and her voice can definitely carry the song.
I agree Lea Michele's voice for the song and movie would have been amazing I hope Ann does a good job with it
Lea Michele's version on Glee was a duet. She's too young for the role of Fantine. She's much more of an Eponine.
just seen the trailer for Les Mis and I can't wait to see this movie at the theatres.....I can't wait!!
Can't wait for this production. I told Hugh Jackman that when I met him! Will have to go to Les MIz anonymous. Saw the play 15 times. It will be fabulous!
I love the theater production and the soundtrack. I lwatched the trailer from the upcoming movie and I cannot wait to see this production of the classic tale of Jean Valjean. I don't go to movies often but I really have to see this at the movie. I think they should prepare now for OSCARDOM
Absolutely can't wait! I've seen Les Mis in London, Toronto, and New York...the trailer is great and I look forward to seeing the new adaptation.
Love the Les Miz trailer! Could not be more excited about this. I wonder though if Crowe can sing???
He's been in a band for years.
That doesn't mean he can sing.
Wow, didn't realize Les Miserables was a musical. Now it looks a lot better from when I thought it was just some boring looking old England movie. Looks interesting now.
Les Mis, takes place in France, not England.
Never said it was in England...
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
