That was fast! Right after Hugh Jackman‘s Jean Valjean, we have Russell Crowe as Javert in this completely new poster for the upcoming Les Miserables. I’m not some huge fan of the whole thing, so I’m definitely not impressed with the material (I liked that young Cosette poster, though), but in case you don’t share my opinion – go on and check the rest of this report for more details!
Tom Hooper‘s movie is set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, and we will apparently have a chance to watch an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption…
Or, at least that’s the plan.
Movie centers on Jackman’ character – ex-prisoner Jean Valjean, hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine’s young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever.
The rest of the cast includes Anne Hathaway as Fantine, Amanda Seyfried as Cosette, Eddie Redmayne as Marius, Aaron Tveit as Enjolras, Samantha Barks as Éponine, Helena Bonham Carter as Madame Thénardier, and Sacha Baron Cohen as Thénardier.
Les Miserables is set to open on December 25th, 2012.
