Truthfully, Amanda Seyfried‘s name should have been in the title because she absolutely blew me away in this new Les Misérables featurette. I haven’t seen many of her films so perhaps others (like Mama Mia fans) are familiar with her singing, but I was shocked and pleasantly surprised to hear her as Cosette. A while back we saw the first trailer to this film adaptation and many of us were excited to see that the movie (directed by The King’s Speech director Tom Hooper) had a seriously authentic feel to it. Especially thrilling was the voice of Anne Hathaway who plays Fantine. Anne, along with Russell Crow, Eddie Redmayne (LOVE), Hugh Jackman, and Samantha Barks come together in this amazing featurette and bring us a behind-the-scenes look at the highly-anticipated film. The cast and crew seem most excited about the fact that their adaptation does the unthinkable with live (rather than pre-recorded and then lip-synched) singing. This all looks pretty epic and I have a very short time to read the 1,000+ page novel by Victor Hugo, but the more I see of the film, the more I’m desperate to explore the original! Check out the video and brace yourselves for Christmas Day, when Les Misérables hits theatres.
