First trailer for Les Misérables: watch now

Les Misérables has released a first official trailer online, featuring Anne Hathaway’s Fantine singing arguably the musical’s most famous song, I Dreamed A Dream .

Unfortunately, it’s near impossible to listen to that song without hearing Susan Boyle’s cloyingly plaintive version in our heads, but still, Miss Hathaway does at least prove that she can carry a tune.

Elsewhere, there are plenty of shots of Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Eddie Redmayne looking handsome, while Amanda Seyfried flutters her eyelashes like a champ.

Take a look at the new trailer, below...

It’s difficult to divine too much from a trailer with no dialogue, but in terms of sweeping spectacle and rousing musical numbers, Tom Hooper’s adaptation certainly seems to tick the relevant boxes.

Les Misérables
opens in the UK on 11 January 2013. Apologies in advance if you end up with SuBo stuck in your head for the rest of the day...
