Universal has released a large amount of promotional material for Tom Hooper’s Les Miserables with five new clips and a batch of new pictures you can check out below. Early screenings of the movie have yielded a highly enthusiastic reception and it now looks likely that the film will be a serious season this upcoming Oscar season.
I absolutely can’t wait to see what the fuss is all about but watching the clips, I’m a bit unsettled by the copious amount of close-ups used by Hooper as well as the somewhat raw quality of some of the singing. While these probably won’t detract from the viewing experience, they might take some effort to get used to.
Check out the clips and pictures below and let us know what you think! Les Miserables opens on Christmas Day.
