With the movie now playing for critics and screeners already in the hands of many, Universal‘s push for Tom Hooper‘s “Les Misérables” is going into the final stretch as it heads toward a release later this month, and now the biggest taste yet of the movie has arrived in five clips from the film.
While the trailers have promised a faithful adaptation of the beloved stage musical, along with an epic scope, these scenes largely show the intimate moments between key characters like Fantine (Anne Hathaway), Jean Valjean (Hugh Jackman) and Javert (Russell Crowe) along with Cosette and Marius (Amanda Seyfriend and Eddie Redmayne). But perhaps most of all, fans will finally get a real taste of Samantha Barks as Eponine singing “On My Own.”
