Point of all this is... have you seen the First Look at the Les Misérables movie due out at Christmas? I'm obsessed. I'm obsessed. I'm obsessed. The actors are all singing live and it's going to be amaaaazing. No pre-recordings being lip-synced over for the camera. Just beautiful, heart-felt, organic songs... where you can really hear the words and understand the story.
Anne Hathaway as Fantine
Her voice and acting in the first look video kinda sorta maybe made me tear up. I officially predict right now that she'll get Best Supporting Actress for this one.
Russell Crowe as Javert and Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean. Sexy men with sexier voices? Signed, sealed, and delivered.
Samantha Barks as Eponine
There's my girl.
Amanda Seyfried as Cosette and Eddie Redmayne as Marius
(Meh to her, but if you don't know him, get to! I fell in love with his acting after watching Pillars of the Earth.)
Do you like musicals? What's your favorite one? Are you excited for Les Mis as much as I am?
