Les Miserables Behind the Scenes Featurette on Singing Live

Here's Another Look at Les Misérables

It's only September, but I already know what's going to be at the top of my wish list this Christmas: the new Les Misérables movie. So far, we've only seen a teaser for the star-studded adaptation (which includes the likes of Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway and Russell Crowe), but this new behind-the-scenes featurette has me more excited than ever. The video focuses on the unorthodox methods that director Tom Hooper (of The King's Speech) used to shoot the movie; instead of having the actors lip-synch to prerecorded tracks, they sang live during every take. Not only is it interesting to hear the actors weigh in on the process, but we also get to hear Amanda Seyfried and Jackman in action for the first time.

I can tell you right now that I'll probably be crying through most of this movie, but check out the video for yourself when you keep reading.
