I didn’t even know the two of them were in the movie! I’m even more excited now!
Sacha Baron Cohen and Helena Bonham Carter play the Thenardiers in the highly anticipated adaptation of the famous musical, and here we’re getting our first look at their character poster!
We also get a look at the character poster for Cosette and Marius, played by Amanda Seyfried and Eddie Redmayne.
Previous character posters for “Les Miserables” have included Hugh Jackman (as Jean Valjean), Russell Crowe (as Javert), Anne Hathaway (as Fantine) and Seyfried by herself. As fans of the musical (and/or Victor Hugo novel) might remember, the Thenardiers are duplicitous parents of Eponine (played by newcomer Samantha Barks) and factor heavily in the film’s tragic last act.
“Les Miserables” is one of the year’s biggest presumed Oscar contenders. Hooper, who won an Academy Award for “The King’s Speech,” had his performers sing live-to-tape during filming, a process that isn’t normally done on movie musicals. For more on “Les Miserables,” watch the behind-the-scenes feature at the bottom of this post.
I literally cannot wait for this movie! Dying!!!
