I have a feeling Tom Hooper's Les Miserables is going to be a big hit. The fact that it's a film that a whole family can see leads me to believe that it will dominate the Christmas box office. Not only that, but I'm sure it's going to get a ton of award nominations.
Vogue has released a great set of character portraits shot by Annie Leibovitz. The photos show off Hugh Jackman (Jean Valjean), Russell Crowe (Javert), Anne Hathaway (Fantine), Amanda Seyfried (Cosette), Sacha Baron Cohen and Helena Bonham Carter (the Thénardiers), and Eddie Redmayne (Marius).

Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption—a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. Jackman plays ex-prisoner Jean Valjean, hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert (Crowe) after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine’s (Hathaway) young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever.
