Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean in Les Miserables MovieBefore seeing this trailer, the only thing that I knew about “Les Miserables” is that the stage show has been wildly popular.  After watching the trailer, the only thing I know about “Les Miserables” is that the song Susan Boyle sang on Britain’s Got Talent is from it.

All joking aside, I really did know very little about this musical adaptation.  I know Tom Hooper, Oscar winner for “The King’s Speech”, is directing.  I know that it has an all star cast that includes Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried, Sacha Baron Cohen, Helena Bonham Carter, and Eddie Redmayne.  I now know, thanks to IMDB, that it is “set in 19th-century France, in which a paroled prisoner named Jean Valjean seeks redemption.”

I love musicals in general, and when done correctly, they are some of my favorite films of all time.  I anticipate this just may join that list.  The costumes, the sets, and the cinematography all look spectacular.  Unfortunately, we all have to wait until December 14, 2012 to see it.
