‘Les Miserables’ Videos Feature Singing Anne Hathaway and Hugh Jackman

Les Miserables

Our first look at Tom Hooper’s vision of ‘Les Miserables‘ (or ‘Les Mis’ as all the arty theater types call it) has arrived, and with it comes video of Anne Hathaway and Hugh Jackman singing “Do You Hear the People Sing?”

The videos come courtesy of Flynet Pictures and feature the filming of the climactic rebellion scene. You can also gaze upon the intricately constructed set and costume design from this gorgeous period piece.

‘Les Miserables’ is based on the 1862 novel by Victor Hugo, which was adapted for the stage in 1985 by Claude-Michel Schönberg. The story follows several characters in 19th century France, including working class mother Fantine and her illegitimate daughter Cosette, and ex-convict Jean Valjean. ‘Les Miserables’ is largely a story of redemption and sacrifice with a climax set during the June Rebellion of 1832.

William Nicholson adapted the story for the big screen, starring Anne Hathaway as Fantine, Amanda Seyfried as Cosette, Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean, and Russell Crowe as Inspector Javert. The film also co-stars Sacha Baron Cohen,  Helena Bonham Carter, and Eddie Redmayne. That’s quite an impressive cast for this highly anticipated musical.

The story was previously adapted in a 1998 film version directed by Bille August and starring Liam Neeson and Claire Danes.
