Les Miserables First Trailer: Anne Hathaway Sings!

Check out the movie trailer that everyone is talking about, the first look at Les Miserables.

Anne Hathaway sings! She sports an Oscar-worthy haircut and looks pretty skinny (after buffing up to play Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises) as the tortured and sick Fantine.

(I have to say, I don’t understand quite why Hathaway singing is creating such a stir. I feel like she’s been singing every chance she gets for the last few years. I’ll be more excited when Gladiator Russell Crowe starts belting out show tunes.)

This will be the thirteenth movie adaptation of Victor Hugo‘s novel of the French Revolution, but the first of the megahit musical version by Claude-Michel Schonberg and Alain Boublil. The film also stars Hugh Jackman, Amanda Seyfried, Sacha Baron Cohen, Helena Bonham Carter, Eddie Redmayne, as well as stage actors Samantha Barks and Aaron Tveit. The movie is helmed by Tom Hooper, fresh off his Oscar win for The King’s Speech.

What do you think of the Les Miz trailer?

    This is far from the 13th adaptation of Hugo’s novel. The real number is somewhere between an official 20-something and an unofficial 60.

    Also “Les Miserables” has nothing to do with the French Revolution. The French Revolution was in 1789 and “Les Miserables” is suppose to start in 1815 (after Waterloo) and end in 1833, with most of the action in 1832. That’s more than 40 years AFTER the French Revolution.
