  • Anne Hathaway sings her heart out in the haunting first trailer for the movie adaptation of Les Miserables

    The trailer for the film adaptation of Les Miserables has been released.

    The official trailer features Anne Hathaway singing the classic I Dreamed A Dream while the other stars of the movie, Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Eddie Redmayne and Amanda Seyfried, all get air time too.

    Interestingly, director Tom Hooper made the stars sing live rather than lip-synch to playback.

    Talking about his decision, he told USA Today: ‘If you are miming to a playback, even if the synchronisation is done very well, there is a part of you that knows something is off, something is false. When it’s live, you believe it so much more.

    ‘The actors have complete freedom rather than following a recording done three months before.’

    Anne Hathaway plays Fantine, a French worker who is forced to sell her hair and become a prostitute in order to survive and pay for her daughter, Cosette, played by Amanda Seyfried, to live with horrible foster parents.

    In the trailer it’s easy to see the effects of Hathaway’s 500-per day calorie diet which she undertook to lose a stone in less than a month.
