Watch: Anne Hathaway & Hugh Jackman Sing The Finale Of 'Les Miserables'; Plus First Look Amanda Seyfried In The Film

From sensual Catwoman to….not so sensual Fantine. Tom Hooper‘s big, Oscar-baiting musical “Les Miserables” continues to roll in front of cameras, and the press and paparazzi continue to be out in full force. Not only do we get a first look at remarkably skinny Anne Hathaway as Fantine, also boasting a rather rough-hewn hairstyle, Amanda Seyfried has also been snapped on set as Cosette. But perhaps the greatest bit is some video that has captured the best look at the film yet.

A pretty clear and very audible video has emerged of the filming of the song “Do You Hear the People Sing?” with Hathaway and Hugh Jackman “singing” along. It’s central to the musical, and one of the most recognizable songs, first appearing at the end of the first act and during the finale, which this scene appears to be from. While there are many reports that singing was going to be recorded live, here everyone is performing to playback, likely due to the massive size of the set piece which would make arranging a live recording a total nightmare. It’s an impressive thing to watch, and clearly the scope of the story will be making its way to the big screen in spades.

Take a look below. As far as these kind of set videos go, it’s very much a cut above the usual fare. “Les Miserables” opens on December 14th. [Collider/JustJared/ONTD]
