FIRST POSTER: Les Miserables


Isabelle Allen is the young Cosentine,
Amanda Seyfried plays the grown up version.
What do you think of this first poster (on the left) for Tom Hooper's Les Miserables? You were expecting Anne Hathaway or Hugh Jackman perhaps?  Or do you like that the studio has chosen to echo - at least initially - the iconic image from the musical (the poster on the right)? 
 All I want for Christmas is to see this one! Okay, that's not exactly true but I am really, very, super, totally jazzed.

  1. I like that they paid tribute to their roots. So many people will be seeing this movie because they loved the musical and I think it's good for them to recognize that.

    1. That's an excellent point Lindsey. You remind me how much we all adore the musical in all its stage variations - including all the local and school productions - in some ways Hooper has a huge task trying to live up to our heightened expectations. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. I haven't seen the movie, or read the book, but will be very very keen to see this one. I can't put it off til I read the book- I'll never get to see it that way! I like the movie poster too.

  3. The movie is an adaptation of the musical, not the book, albeit the musical is based on the book. Victor Hugo might have issues with its execution, or, he could have been totally mesmerized.

    1. The book is the original source. Can't have one without the other, right? I do wonder what Hugo's reaction would be.
