The first official trailer for Tom Hooper's Les Misérables has been released, starring Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne and Samantha Barks.
In the emotional teaser, Anne sings her stirring rendition of "I Dreamed a Dream" from the movie adaptation of the hit musical.
While listening to Anne's gorgeous voice, we see glimpses of pivotal scenes in the story, including the heartbreaking moment when Anne's character Fantine cuts off her hair and sells it for money. Anne actually chopped off her locks for the role and has been sporting a shorter 'do ever since.
In the film, Hugh plays ex-prisoner Jean Valjean, who is hunted for decades by the ruthless Javert (Russell) after he breaks parole. Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine’s young daughter, Cosette (Amanda), and their lives change forever.
The movie also stars Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen, who were not featured in this trailer. The movie hits theaters on December 14. Are you excited?
