They weren't always huge stars. Even today's A-listers were once yesterday's struggling actors. Now they have directors dying to work with them but back in the day, they sat in a waiting room with hundreds of other hopefuls, waiting for an audition and their big break
You've seen those new photos from 'Les Miserables,' right? Aside from Anne Hathaway having her own 'V for Vendetta' haircut moment while singing "I Dreamed a Dream" (you can watch the trailer for that), Hugh Jackman completely let himself go beard wise and became Christian Bale's long-lost twin.
Yesterday you got to see some photos of the 'Les Miserables' cast so you know how they look as your favorite characters, but what do Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe sound like when they're singing your favorite 'Les Mis' songs? The 'Les Miserables' trailer is here and you can find out.
Tom Hooper caught a lot of grief as his ‘The King’s Speech’ rode the Oscar campaign trail two years ago, primarily because his excellent film was deemed “not as excellent” as David Fincher’s ‘The Social Network’ by vocal film columnists. But in the process of arguing for ‘Network’ (which is great), most overlooked the fact that ‘Speech’ is deftly directed and superbly acted. Hooper’s the real deal, and he’s the perfect fit for ‘Les Miserables,’ which we get a good look at today.
Coming off the high of 'X-Men: First Class,' it's not surprising that 20th Century Fox is ready to have two 'X-Men' films shooting in the next year. We've already mentioned that 'X-Men: First Class 2' (or whatever it's called) will start filming in early 2013, but it seems that 'The Wolverine' is going to be first out the gate with an August start date.
Though it may be silly to call it the "Facebook and Twitter era," modern technology has changed many things about how films publicize themselves and generate buzz. Normally a studio would release the first images of their star in a movie, but these days the stars may release it themselves. And so Hugh Jackman revealed the first official image from Tom Hooper's 'Les Miserables' via Twitter.
If you stayed through the end credits of ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine,’ you know that Hugh Jackman teased the direction of the inevitable sequel, and that the mutant antihero finally would be heading to Japan. A new image has popped up online that could be a teaser poster for 'The Wolverine' and hints at the film's new location.
