Universal Pictures Ireland have sent over another new poster for their forthcoming musical drama, the Tom Hooper adaptation of the classic stage-musical Les Misérables. This one features Russell Crowe looking very stern.

Alongside Crowe the film stars Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Sacha Baron Cohen, Eddie Redmayne, Samantha Barks, and Helena Bonham Carter. So quite the heady cast.

Les Misérables will be released in the US on Christmas Day, and reaches our shores on January 11th.


Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, 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. Jackman plays ex-prisoner Jean Valjean, hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert (Crowe) after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine’s (Hathaway) young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever.
