Les Misérables is an 1862 French novel by author Victor Hugo that is widely considered one of the greatest novels of the nineteenth century. The title can be variously translated from the French as The Miserable, The Wretched, The Poor Ones, The Wretched Poor, or The Victims, but in the English-speaking world the novel is usually referred to by its original French title. Beginning in 1815 and culminating in the 1832 June Rebellion, the novel follows the lives and interactions of several characters, focusing on the struggles of ex-convict Jean Valjean and his experience of redemption.
Gearing up for the Christmas Day release date, “Les Miserables” has unveiled a pair of new promotional character posters.
The new artwork includes images of Sacha Baron Cohen teamed with Helena Bonham Carter, and Eddie Redmayne with Amanda Seyfried.
Directed by Tom Hooper, “Les Miserables” also stars Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Aaron Tveit, Samantha Banks, and Russell Crowe.
Per the synopsis, “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.”
Les Misérables fans can stop wondering how Sacha Baron Cohen and Helena Bonham Carter will look in the movie adaptation of the classic musical because two new character posters have been released for the Tom Hooper film.
The costars appear together for the first time as the Thenardiers on one poster, looking a bit crazed in their 19th-century wear.
The quirky characters have an intense and mysterious look in the "Master of the House" photo; Bonham Carter's piercing stare and wild hair leave us totally captivated.
