The trailer for the Les Miserables film adaption is out and it looks.....pretty cool. Even to someone who was turned off of Les Mis (and Phantom) because of the theater kids at school who sang the songs excessively. But I also have a mother who loves Les Miserables who acted out the whole play to me on our back porch after she saw it for the first time so I'll probably see this with her. As far as the casting goes? Overall, it's a pretty safe cast. Hathaway has turned into a solid actress and Crowe is almost always great. Jackman? Meh, but I'm sure he'll be fine.
