FIRST LOOK: 'Les Miserables' Trailer - Can Anne Hathaway Sing?

Posted: Updated:

Our first chance to have a look at the big screen adaptation of Cameron Mackintosh's Les Miserables has arrived.

The first trailer has landed, with Anne Hathaway giving it full blast as Fantine, which means she's singing I Dreamed A Dream - the song that made Susan Boyle a star. The trailer also gives us glimpses of pre-revolutionary France, with all the cloaks, horses and carriages and meaningful stares that we enjoyed with the stage version.

Can Ms Hathaway match Ms Boyle for surprising us? Watch the trailer above and see what you think.

The film is up there in the highly-anticipated category, with a heavy star wattage to accompany the famous music and heartrending story. King's Speech alumnus Tom Hooper is directing, and Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe play lifelong foes Jean Valjean and Javert respectively, on whose enmity the whole story hangs.

Helena Bonham Carter, Eddie Redmayne and Amanda Seyfried are also among the lineup, with the original stage favourite Colm Wilkinson given the screen role of a bishop.

The film is due in UK cinemas next January.
