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.
Holy Snikt! Bryan Singer's 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' is not only offering the new Magneto Michael Fassbender and Professor X James McAvoy along with the original versions played by Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart, it looks like Hugh Jackman may be joining the cast for his seventh go-around as Wolverine.
Director James Mangold is about to finish up production on 'The Wolverine' with only a few more days of production left, so that means we should be getting close to seeing the first trailer, right? After a Q&A with Mangold and the film's star Hugh Jackman, the first Japanese calligraphy-style poster was revealed, and the first official photos emerged not too long before. But seriously, we want to see the trailer!
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.
Ready for another 'Les Miserables' trailer? Well, this one isn't as exciting as the first one, which debuted Anne Hathaway's major singing moment in the film, as this new international UK trailer is more depressing than anything else. However, after watching all the new footage compiled together, you realize that it actually doubles as a medley of some of the major songs from the musical!
We're about to enter the heart of darkness for the Oscar season, where a number of big pictures are going to make their bid to be the front runner. But all bets are off until December 25, when 'Les Miserables' hits screens. Now there are two TV spots to sell the scale and importance (and perhaps inevitability) of the film.
