This season of Dancing With the Stars finally served a purpose tonight by premiering the first TV spot for Les Miserables. The internet served an even better purpose when the Les Miserables Twitter page posted the same spot online so that we didn't have to sit through Dancing With the Stars to see it.
Entitled "Dream", the spot is basically an updated version of the first trailer, showcasing Anne Hathaway's gut-wrenching version of"I Dreamed a Dream", but with a few new glimpses of Russell Crowe as Inspector Javert (possibly from "Stars"?), and a shot of poor Eponine that's sure to make fans of that love triangle burst into tears:
Cannot wait for this. Just like the new film poster that debuted this week, I love how the dissolve at the end of the TV spot goes from little Isabelle Allen's Cosette to that iconic image of Cosette from the stage musical (which is based on the original Emile Bayard illustration for Victor Hugo's novel). That's just beautiful.
Les Miserables opens in theaters on Christmas Day.
