Lady Bacula: We’ve got a new Les Misérables trailer, you guys! And only one week until we can see the whole thing. It’s actually the international trailer. I’m not sure what that means, but it doesn’t make the movie look any less awesome.
I’ve never seen the musical, although I know a lot of the music from various choruses in my younger years. I thought about reading the book, but Lady Saika warned me against it.
Lady Saika: I love it, but the unabridged version is the only way to go, and it’s a hell of a commitment at 1400+ pages.
Lady Bacula: I’m reading the Song of Ice and Fire books instead. But I love Hugh Jackman (from X-Men and Oklahoma!), and Anne Hathaway seems to have good chops. I’m a tad worried about Russell Crowe. In fact, I’m afraid we’re going to get a similar performance to Pierce Brosnan in Mamma Mia! And if you’ve never seen that, count yourself amongst the lucky.
Now that we are all gearing up for Christmas, I hope you’ve put seeing this movie on your list!
