Universal has recently announced that the release date of the highly anticipated musical adaptation of Les Misérables from December 14 to December 25. The competition is going to be tight as Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained and Anne Fletcher’s comedy, starring Seth Rogen and Barbara Streisand, The Guilt Trip are also going to be released that day.
However, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is going to be released on December 14 and would have also provided some stiff competition for Tom Hooper’s Les Misérables.
