Les Misérables international trailer shows off the cast's singing: watch now

The new, full-length international trailer for Tom Hooper’s musical adaptation of Les Misérables reveals vocal performances from most of the ensemble cast.

Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Sacha Baron Cohen, Helena Bonham Carter, and Eddie Redmayne are all included, and the majority comprise a musical medley of a handful of the stage show’s well-known numbers, 'I Dreamed A Dream', 'One Day More', 'Do You Hear The People Sing?' and more.
 
Previous trailers had focussed on Anne Hathaway’s vocal talent in her rendition of 'I Dreamed A Dream'. But now we can even hear Russell Crowe pull off a note or two.
 
In addition to showcasing Hooper’s authentic method of recording the vocals live on set, as opposed to in a studio, the two-and-a-half-minute trailer provides fresh footage - previously unseen in the trailer and teaser - including a first look at Bonham Carter and Baron Cohen as the loathsome Thénardiers.
 
It unveils more of the traditional grandeur of Hooper’s version of 19th-Century France in what looks to be an impressively powerful and stylistic display.
