The latest poster for Tom Hooper’s big screen adaptation of Les miserables was released on Monday this week, paying homage ot the original artwork used for Broadway’s longest running musical.
The poster features Isabelle Allen as the young Cosette, rather than featuring any of the film’s top billed stars, whose names include Amanda Seyfried, Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman, and Anne Hatheway.
The film is set in 19th century France, and Les Mis follows Jean Valjean (Jackman), a man released from prison who takes on a new life and a new name and is hunted for years by police Inspector Javert (Crowe) for violating his parole. Valjean takes on the task of caring for poor factory worker Fantine’s (Hathaway) young daughter Cosette (Allen, Seyfried plays the adult Cosette) after she dies.
Other big names that will appear in the Christmas day release include Helena Bonham Carter, and Sacha Baron Cohen, and the film will include all of the classic musical tracks from the play.
