'Les Miserables' Trailer: Anne Hathaway Sounds Great, Looks Awful

Les Miserables Trailer

The trailer for the feel-good movie of the holidays has finally been released! Watch it here & give us your review.

We’ve been hearing about the Les Miserables movie forever — remember the uproar when everyone thought Taylor Swift was playing Eponine? — and now we finally have our first real look at the Broadway phenomenon’s leap to the big screen. Most of the trailer focuses on Anne Hathaway‘s haunting performance of “I Dreamed A Dream,” with shots of stars Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Amanda Seyfried woven throughout.

The movie looks fantastic, and even though we only get to hear a piece of one song in the trailer, I have faith that Hugh, Russell and Amanda will all deliver solid performances.

Watch the trailer below, then drop a comment with your instant review:

I think that Anne Hathaway will do a great job. The song she sings is so moving and beautiful that from the sample I heard she pulls it off. I love Les Miserables, and all it’s songs. I can’t wait to see it.

I was lucky enough to hav watched part of the filming of this les miserables movie and believe me it is going to be incredible. I am talking as a fan of the musical and like others I worried how it was going to come across on big screen but seeing what they have done with my own eyes has made me the most excited I have ever been regarding a film. The cast are amazing, singing live as much as they are able, you don’t get that often do you? Be excited its going to be great!!

why Crowe? Why Jackman? In Australia thinking people see both of them as “meatheads”. To star these two oafs in such a wonderful story… I don’t like to see them interviewed-so pretentious, so phoney. Why oh why did they cast these two dopes ?

Well, because Russel Crowe is an incredible actor as he has displayed in both Gladiator and A Beautiful Mind, and because Hugh Jackman, though he may be known or his roles in X-Men and other action movies, is an incredible stage actor and singer. If you have any doubts, look up his performances in Oklahoma and other musicals, you will be blown away, American audiences know Hugh Jackman as a beefy action star, but his roots are in musical theatre.

Lets be honest, love him or loath him, Russel has never been terrible in a film, especially one of this magnitude. Based on this trailer and the people behind this film I have no doubt this will be up there with the best films of all time. I can’t wait. Any tickets for the premier?
