Les Misérables Giveaway (ends 12/31/12)

Les Miserables Movie Posters

Are you excited about the release of Les Misérables, opening on Christmas Day? I was not a fan of the book, and I’ve only seen one movie version of the film (which I wasn’t overly impressed by). However every time I see clips and the trailer for Les Misérables, staring Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway and Russell Crowe, I get really excited. The film has a stellar cast which also includes Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne, Aaron Tveit, Samantha Barks, with Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen.

Did you know that all the songs in the movie were filmed LIVE. The actors did not sing in a studio but rather on set when they were filming. By doing it that way the actors were able to give more emotion and feeling to the song, as well as their performance.

I had shared this behind the scenes video once before, but in case you missed it, here it is again. It’s fascinating how they did the songs for the film.

 

If you are reading this post via e-mail you’ll have to visit the site to see the video, or you can find it here, http://bit.ly/UQ50C5.

If you are unfamiliar with the storyline, here is a brief synopsis of the film.

Les Misérables is the motion-picture adaptation of the beloved global stage sensation seen by more than 60 million people in 42 countries and in 21 languages around the globe and still breaking box-office records everywhere in its 27th year. Helmed by The King’s Speech’s Academy Award®-winning director, Tom Hooper, the Working Title/Cameron Mackintosh production stars Hugh Jackman, Oscar® winner Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne, Aaron Tveit, Samantha Barks, with Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen.

Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption—a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. Jackman plays ex-prisoner Jean Valjean, hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert (Crowe) after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine’s (Hathaway) young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever.

Les Misérables has an amazing soundtrack including beloved songs such as “I Dreamed a Dream,” “Bring Him Home,” “One Day More” and “On My Own”.

Here is the film’s trailer (you can also find it here, http://bit.ly/TC4id0).

 

The film is already generating some Oscar buzz, and it hasn’t even been released yet. I believe Hugh Jackman is being considered for Best Actor for his part of Valjean. I met Hugh once. He’s a very sweet man (always smiling!).

If you would like to learn more about the film, visit the official website. You can also “Like” Les Misérables on Facebook and follow the film on Twitter @LesMiserables on Twitter (the hashtag is #LesMis). The film is even on Pinterest.

In honor of the film’s release I have a special Les Misérables prize package which includes the following; 

  • $15 Fandango Bucks
  • T-Shirt
  • Official Soundtrack (CD)
