This new trailer for the film rendition of ‘Les Miserables’ gave me the biggest goosebumps. Anne Hathaway sings the long-running stage show’s first act song “I Dreamed a Dream” in the new star-studded film.
From the sound of it, the actress and former Oscar host, 29, boasts an impressive set of pipes, and the number, which has been known to bring a tear to theater audiences, sounds as haunting as ever.
Hathaway costars in the musical epic alongside Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried, Sacha Baron Cohen, Colm Wilkinson and others.
Based on the 1862 Victor Hugo novel, set against the French Revolution and shot in England and Paris, the story centers around Jean Valjean (Jackman), whose tale of woe begins when he is imprisoned for stealing a loaf of bread.
The King’s Speech Oscar winner Tom Hooper directs, and the film – which has been in the discussion stage since the 1980s – is finally due to be released by Universal on Dec. 14.
It looks incredible!
