We're big fans of Hugh Jackman and Les Miserables so we're excirah and delirah that we won't have to wait much longer for a lethal combination of the two! Les Miserables is coming to Irish cinemas in just over a month (that's January 11th to you and I) and what with it getting a standing ovation from the audience we're willing to bet it's going to be rather good.
That said, we've still got to sight tight for a month or so and we really need something to fill the void. Well, it just so happens that not one, not two, but THREE brand new featurettes have made their way online. Fancy that! They take us behind the scenes with Tom Hooper and his star studded cast, looking at everything from a new original song written for the film, to make up, to the mammoth task of designing the whole thing in the first place.
Les Miserables tells the tale of Jean Valjean (Jackman), a man on the run from the law (Russell Crowe's Javert). He agrees to take care of Cosette (Seyfried), the illegitimate daughter of a prostitute (Hathaway) and the two attempt to live their lives against the backdrop of the French Revolution. Sounds positively Miserables.
