Looks just as boring as that awful Opera House preview we're now forced to watch in the theaters.

What is with the fangirl shrieking? I don't care about the stupid broadway play. Les Miserables is written by one of the greatest authors of all time Victor Hugo. It also plays out in my favorite time period (revolutionary France)

I loved the book. I don't know about this... I have no choice on seeing/not seeing it though. I'm pretty sure my fiance would want us to watch this.

I went to see this a couple of years ago in London and that was awesome. Hopefully this will be just as good, musicals are a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine ;)

Now all I need is a film of Blood Brothers

Have you seen the Liam Neeson movie people? If its anything as good as that, then it is worth the movie ticket.

F?$%§ the Miserable musical for making the June Rebellion looks like a prima ballerina.

Having gone to school in France and had to witness I don't know how many different version of this film and read the book about 3 times (in French lol) I can say with a fair amount of certainty that I will probably be passing this one up. When you know whats going to happen off by heart the film is pretty boring to watch!

They had to pause the screening at the NYC premiere three times due to overwhelming applause from the (celebrity) crowd, including a standing ovation after I Dreamed A Dream. Early rumors and speculation say this role's gonna net her at the very least an Oscar nom, if not a win.

I'm most apprehensive about Amanda. She's got a pretty voice, but I don't know if she has the power to carry the role and stand with the rest of the talent in the cast.

I agree 100%. Her take on I Dreamed A Dream is amazing. The level of despair in Anne's voice is something that I never heard from the actresses in the stage version. Anne Hathaway makes you believe that Fantine is at the end of her rope with that song.

I am ridiculously excited for this movie. I only have two worries:

  1. Russell Crowe's singing voice sounds like it might be iffy.
  2. I may not be able to stop myself from singing along to One Day More!

CLIPS! :D Jackman obliterates Crowe when it comes to singing, and Marius is adorable,

#43 Posted by laflux (15900 posts) - - Show Bio

To be honest the original reason I was going to watch this was solely because of Russell Crowe. Looks good, and if it sucks, then I've always got Glee to fall back on :-D

So damn disappointed with Amanda Seyfried. Cosette is supposed to have that high, fragile voice and Amanda's a pretty singer, but she doesn't have the pipes to handle this part.

I saw in an interview that when she was a teen, she was classically trained to sing songs like those in Les Mis, but then she stopped taking lessons for like 10 years and didn't pick them up again till 4 months before she got the role of Cosette.

So cantankerous. She has eyes that will turn your icy soul into melted butter. Deal with it.

Did you really just call me cantankerous? >__<

I don't care how pretty she is, they shouldn't just be casting for pretty, they should be casting for singers who can carry the parts, especially when they're doing live takes.

She has a really pretty pop voice, but that by no means transfers over to Les Mis.

@Xanni15: That's a shame :S

Wait until the final product is released. Good grief.

Truth be told, I've only ever read the novel once, and I quite frankly was put off by the whole affair. The French Revolution is absolutely fascinating, but this whole charade about neediness and whatnot is boring. I'd rather see a musical adaption of The Communist Manifesto.
