Pictured: Anne Hathaway & Amanda Seyfried
Following last week’s big London premiere, it was NYC’s time to host a highly anticipated premiere of the musical drama “Les Miserable,” which officially goes into wide release on December 25. As we mentioned in our previous post, Jackson & I aren’t big on musicals, so we’ll probably opt for Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained,” which also releases on Christmas Day.
The fashionable NYC premiere went down at the Ziegfeld Theatre, with Amanda Seyfried winning this latest round on the red carpet. The actress donned a beautiful gold encrusted gown & made love to the flashing cameras with her sultry eyes. As for Anne Hathaway, I was not digging the way she had her hair this time around. It just looked looked too boyish & the outfit was definitely one of those gowns which failed to photograph well. How can she go from what she wore in London to this thing?! I don’t get it.
Anyway, the film’s ensemble cast includes Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne, Samantha Barks, Sacha Baron Cohen, Helena Bonham Carter and Aaron Tveit. Keep in mind that those are just the big doggs.
For those of you who won’t know much about the film, here’s some plot action:
Jean Valjean (Hugh Jackman), a Frenchman imprisoned for stealing bread, has broken his parole and must flee from police Inspector Javert (Russell Crowe). The pursuit consumes both men’s lives, and after two decades on the run, Valjean finds himself in the midst of the 1832 June Rebellion in Paris.
