Has anyone seen an early pirated copy, LOL? What are the reviews? Christmas day. I am so excited about this movie, and it is such an incredible book, play, musical, etc deserves it's own thread. I hope Crowe can sing, and while I'm a Hathaway fan as an actress, and she seems a nice person, I think her singing is not up to what we expect of fantine. I have no idea who plays little or gown Cosette.
I think expectations of this movie will be so high, as it should be. I guess I know I'll be disappointed after seeing Colm Wilkinson, the various super singer Fantines. I guess people must go with big names to get musicals financed, but in this case, it seems half the world has seen Les Mis the musical on stage or the anniversary concert versions. The music, the story is so beloved, I think it would be huge if they went with the best musical talent they could find, and even those who played parts on the big stages.
I just hope i don't see Hathaway wreck, "I dreamed a Dream." I cannot find someone I liked better than Ruthie henshall as Fantine in the first anniversary concert. I watched it on PBS over and over and it brought me through the winter i recall. And Lea Salonga playinging two Eponine and the Fantine )or was she the grown up Cosette?) someone help me please. I saw the 25th version once. If I hate the movie, I'll be looking to but the concert DVD 25th version.
Is there anyone here as excited as me about Les Mis? I'll bet Coyote Chris, Tonichelle, Olympia, Heyang and more could easily be dragged out Christmas day! I know no one THAT excited except me. I almost afraid to read the pre-views. But I'll bet folks here have-what are they saying??? (she asked breatlessly!)
Only a skating movie starring our favorite skaters at their peak could get me to a theatre!
