Hollywood has a rich history of turning popular musicals into movies starring some of the biggest names in the business.  Meryl Streep joined Donna and the Dynamos in Mamma Mia, Catherine Zeta-Jones won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role as Velma Kelly in Chicago, which also won the Best Picture Oscar, and Adam Shankman turned Hairspray into a box office smash starring John Travolta and Michelle Pfeiffer.

The streak continues this December with LES MISÉRABLES, an epic and uplifting story about the survival of the human spirit.  Starring Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Russel Crowe and more, the movie hits theaters on Christmas Day.  But the studio released an extended look at the movie, which you can watch below.

While the movie looks amazing, there is really nothing like seeing this musical on the stage.

Cameron Mackintosh’s new production of Boublil and Schönberg’s LES MISÉRABLES has music by Claude-Michel Schönberg, lyrics by Herbert Kretzmer from the original French text by Alain Boublil and Jean-Marc Natel and additional material by James Fenton. The new 25th anniversary production is directed by Laurence Connor and James Powell, designed by Matt Kinley inspired by the paintings of Victor Hugo with costumes by Andreane Neofitou and additional costumes by Christine Rowlands, lighting by Paule Constable and sound by Mick Potter.

The magnificent score of LES MISÉRABLES includes the classic songs “I Dreamed a Dream,” “On My Own,” “Stars,” “Bring Him Home,” “Do You Hear the People Sing?,” “One Day More,” “Empty Chairs at Empty Tables,” “Master Of The House” and many more.
