Oscar-winning director Tom Hooper‘s big budget, musical adaptation of Les Miserables made my top ten anticipated films of 2012 because behind all the geek stereotypes, a good musical really gets to me and Les Miserables is one of my favorites. So when I say these newly leaked set videos featuring stars Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway singing are among some of the best I’ve ever seen, it comes from a place of passion.
One of the videos looks to be the grand finale of the story, the reprise of “Do You Hear The People Sing?” performed the entire company. Another is of Jackman’s character, Jean Valjean, storming out of a church singing and a third is of Russell Crowe‘s character Javier, who is hunting Valjean, riding to set on a horse.
Okay, so the videos get less exciting as they go along but they do provide a unique glimpse at the filming of such a massive musical. Check them out after the jump. Read More »

That Tony Award-winning Broadway vet Hugh Jackman was a great pick to star as Jean Valjean Tom Hooper‘s Les Misérables was never in doubt, but it seems his theater experience may prove even more helpful to the film production than we previously expected. According to a new report, Hooper has ordered his cast to sing live while shooting their scenes, much as they would if they were performing in a stage musical.
The more usual method is to record the vocals in a studio and lip-synch during filming, so Hooper’s decision suggests that we may be seeing something more traditionally theatrical than we’re used to seeing from big-screen musicals. Read more after the jump.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
The first time you watched the theatrical trailer for The Dark Knight Rises, a ton of questions obviously popped onto your head. For me, one of them was, “Why is Bruce Wayne in prison again?” In Batman Begins, the young Mr. Wayne was in prison punishing himself for the fate of his parents only to come out of the experience stronger than before and on his way to becoming the Caped Crusader. In The Dark Knight Rises trailer, we see Bruce walking into an almost Inception-esque room filled with staircases and chanting prisoners. “What does that mean?” asks Bruce. “Rise,” says a knowing prisoner. As fans, we can ask the same question, “What does that mean?”
A new article written on the set of The Dark Knight Rises offers up a significant clue but, of course, it should be considered a massive spoiler. Read it, along with new details about Catwoman’s suit, after the jump. Read More »
