Les Miserables Teaser Trailer Released

The first trailer for an upcoming adaptation of the Les Miserables musical has been released, turning the hit musical version of Victor Hugo’s masterpiece into a film.

What do you think? The film will be out in December, competing with The Great Gatsby for literary movie-goers. Internet pranksters have already created a .GIF that captures a particularly emotive moment in Anne Hathaway‘s singing performance.

The Washington Post broke down some of the imagery: “We see images of Hugh Jackman’s Jean Valjean waist deep in water as prisoner 24601 and later comforting a fifthly young Cosette in a bleak forest. Then there’s Russell Crowe looking appropriately intense as Javert. Eddie Redmayne as Marius makes a stand for revolution on the barricades and eyes the lovely Cosette, played by Amanda Seyfried.”
