Les Misérables 2012 Official Trailer

The upcoming adaptation from Universal Pictures is directed by Oscar winning director Tom Hooper (The King's Speech) and scheduled for theatrical release this December. Les Misérables is the motion-picture adaptation of the beloved global stage sensation seen by more than 60 million people in 42 countries and in 21 languages around the globe and still breaking box-office records everywhere in its 27th year. 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.

With all the star power in the cast of Tom Hooper's Les Miserables, deciding on the actor to feature on its first poster must have been impossible. But it had to be done, and so when forced to choose between Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Russell Crowe and Amanda Seyfried, Universal went with ... Isabelle Allen? Yes, they chose the young version of Seyfried's Cossette character, and it sends a big message: The film may have shiny stars, but it's also steeped in tradition. The poster is reminiscent of the famous Broadway one sheet that advertised the musical's long run.

Les Misérables has a new poster, and it’s basically a live-action update of the stage musical’s iconic, illustrated one-sheet. Yep, the sad little girl with the wavy locks, Cosette, is front and centre. It’s telling of the ‘brand value’ (sorry) of that image, that the marketing bods have opted to run with it over any number of the star names they have on the project: Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Russell Crowe
