Les Miserables First Trailer

Les Misérables Trailer: Dreaming Dreams With Anne Hathaway and Hugh Jackman

Earlier this week, we were excited about the photos of the new film adaption of Les Misérables, but the new teaser trailer gives us a peek at Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman, Amanda Seyfried and Russell Crowe in heartbreaking action. Hathaway, as Fantine, belts out a soft rendition of one of the musical's most famous songs, "I Dreamed a Dream," while we get glimpses of the other characters and some of the crucial scenes in the movie, like the shearing of Fantine's long locks. It's particularly chilling to see Fantine both before and after she becomes poverty-stricken.

Though I'm dying to hear some of the other actors' pipes in action (particular Crowe's), I have to say that Hathaway does a pretty solid job. Hopefully, the next trailers will give more variety, but this one is intriguing enough to hold me over until then. The movie doesn't hit cinemas in Australia until Dec. 26, but you can check out the new trailer after the jump.
