Universal Pictures has released five new character posters for the highly anticipated Tom Hooper-directed movie-musical Les Misérables. These new posters feature actors Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried, and Isabelle Allen. Personally, I am very excited for this film. I cannot wait to see how the cast works together and how the film turns out!
In a recently released featurette, Hooper and some cast members were talking about the new method that Hooper has decided to use to record the songs. Instead of going into a studio three months before filming and pre-recording the songs and then using “play back” on set, the Les Misérables crew is recording the songs and the performances simultaneously. This technique is revolutionary and according to the actors, it made it easier to find the emotion necessary for this type of musical. Be sure to check out the featurette if you have not seen it already!
Take a look at these five stunning new character posters and let me know what you think in the comments below! Are you looking forward to this film version of Les Misérables? What do you think of the cast that is involved? Do you think the new recording technique Hooper is using will add more to the film?
