This Christmas season, two very different movies hit theaters: 'Les Miserables' and 'Django Unchained.' Yet for all their differences, the two are like in one major way: they're both pretty bleak. So stars Anne Hathaway and Samuel L. Jackson got themselves in a spirited debate (and by spirited we mean lots of curse words) in what Funny or Die is calling a "Sad Off" and you haven't lived until you've seen Anne Hathaway call Sam Jackson a motherf---er.
Previously, we had heard Anne Hathaway say that a Catwoman spinoff of 'The Dark Knight Rises' would be "lovely" but since haven't had much of an update. But now, with Hathaway out promoting 'Les Miserables,' the actress was asked for an update. Hathaway said she "would love to" star in a 'Catwoman' film and talked about how much she loves the character. And then she started sobbing.
Tom Hooper's 'Les Miserables' is not only the long awaited adaptation of one of one of the most beloved musicals of all time, it's a serious Oscar contender that looks to replicate the critical and financial success of his previous film, 'The King's Speech.' It's also a chance for the likes of Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Anne Hathaway to really strut their stuff and bring a bit of Broadway to the big screen. Five clips have been released from the film, totaling about six minutes, and they can be watched below. Don't worry -- the film is 160 minutes long, so if you choose to watch these, you're only getting a tiny taste.
With the holiday season about to kick into gear, we're about to see the big guns of the Oscar pictures, and one of the biggest of 2012 is 'Les Miserables.' Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Russell Crowe and Amanda Seyfried lead the cast of the awards-bait film, and now they've taken had their pictures by Annie Leibovitz for Vogue magazine.
It's no secret that many people guest host Saturday Night Live to promote upcoming projects or films, but some handle the whole "plug my project while I make you laugh" thing better than others. Well, Anne Hathaway is a terrific multi-tasker: she managed to plug 'Les Miserables' while leading an inspired and rousing opening to last night's show.
