LES MISÉRABLES Teaser Trailer Released
This is a film I’m eagerly awaiting and will be one of the definite highlights of the Christmas season. Being a fan of the musical, my first reaction upon watching this (and I’m sure it’s no different from others’) is that Anne Hathaway does not have the vocal chops to pull off this role. Hathaway’s singing ability has been noted, and she does have a nice voice, but I had long questioned whether it’s strong enough to emote the angst and range required to do the emotionally charged character of Fantine justice. This teaser tells me it’s not. Still, I look forward to Tom Hooper’s follow-up to his Oscar-winning The King’s Speech.
