Another trailer has been released for Les Miserables and it features Samantha Barks as Eponine singing a beautiful rendition of the song "On My Own." Barks played this same role on Broadway, and as you'll see and hear, she completely owns this musical number. It's also got some more new footage from the film.
The movie comes out on Christmas day, and also stars Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne, Aaron Tveit, Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen.
I grew up listening to this musical, and I really hope it lives up to the expectations that I have set. Every review that I've seen has been glowing so that's a good sign.
Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, the December 25 release tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption–a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. Hugh Jackman plays ex-prisoner Jean Valjean, hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert (Russell Crowe) after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine’s (Anne Hathaway) young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever.
