One of the things that interested me most in Tom Hooper's adaptation of Les Miserables is how the actors would handle the music. The music written for the play is beautiful, and it's easy to see how actors could screw it up. Lets face it, just because you're an A-list actor doesn't mean you can sing. I do hope that they'll be able to pull it off though!
Here's a few videos from the set of the film giving us our first look at Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway singing one of the song from the film, Do You Hear the People Sing? The video also gives us a glimpse at the elaborate set of the film.
The story is set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, and tells the powerful 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." The film also stars Russell Crowes, Amanda Seyfried, Anne Hathaway, Eddie Redmayne, Aaron Tveit, and Samantha Barks.
The movie is set to hit theaters on December 14th, 2012. Check out the videos and let us know if you think these actors will be able to pull off these musical tunes.
