New Poster and Featurette For Tom Hooper’s “Les Misérables”


After first trailer I was excited for Anne Hathaway, but that was about it as far as Academy Award winner Tom Hooper (The King’s Speech) and his new version of Les Mis was concerned. But then last week they released a behind the scene featurette (posted below) that had interviews with the cast discussing how they recorded the music live as they were filming. They were so excited, that I became excited. Now we’ve got this poster, which is a take on the classic artwork for the musical. I can dig it.
