Today we have 18 new photos from Les Miserables, the motion-picture adaptation of the beloved global stage sensation seen by more than 60 million people in 42 countries and in 21 languages around the globe and still breaking box-office records everywhere in its 27th year.
Tom Hooper’s directed adaptation stars Hugh Jackman as parole-breaking convict Jean Valjean, Russell Crowe as the police officer pursuing him and Anne Hathaway as starving prostitute Fantine.
The film is based on the Broadway musical by Claude-Michel Schönberg, which was adapted from Victor Hugo’s 1862 novel.
