Tom Hooper's Les Miserables Movie Poster Goes Old School and Very Iconic

Les Miserables

After hearing the news that Anne Hathaway will play Fantine in the movie adaptation of Les Miserables, my interest has been set to the maximum level. Add another news of a Hugh Jackman addition to play Jean Valjean and my excitement meter broke beyond the limit.

Come December 25, 2012, we are all going to witness the movie adaptation of the classic hit Broadway musical. But before that moment we are here with an old school poster of the said movie adaptation. The poster features the younger Cosette, who will be played by Amanda Seyfried when she grows old a little.

See for your self the movie poster of Les Miserables:

Isn't this lovely a great resemblance of the iconic logo of the Broadway musical the movie was based upon?

Updated: A new featurette for Les Miserables entitled Extended First Look has been released. It features an outlook how stage singing was altered to make it look as if the actors were not singing to the tune, but they let the tune work with there acting:

This just excites me even more, proving that the movie will none-the-less be faithful to the musical play rather than the great masterpiece written by Victor Hugo. This says a so much, actually, as the Broadway adaptation has a lot of differences from the book, although keeping the main plot still intact. I just really can't wait for Christmas Day to come so that we could all watch this movie...
