Extended First Look at Tom Hooper’s ‘Les Misérables’

After some silence on the Les Mis front, there’s finally a new video for eager fans to fawn over. A new extended look at the film features four and a half minutes of behind-the-scenes footage — including singing from the principal cast such as Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne, Samantha Barks, Anne Hathaway, and Hugh Jackman himself (singing a clip of “Valjean’s Soliloquy”). There are also interviews with the aforementioned actors, along with Russell Crowe, in which they talk about working on the movie and the process of singing live on set. It’s a great, informative featurette that’s whetting the appetites of film fans across the web.

Les Misérables recently changed its released date; fans in the U.S. can now expect a wonderful holiday present, as it’s now scheduled to hit theaters on December 25th (Christmas Day).
