Whether you love Tom Hooper's long and loud "Les Miserables," or if you're less enthused (like this writer), most everyone can agree that the highlight, the standout sizzle reel moment, is Anne Hathaway's heartbreaking rendition of "I Dreamed A Dream." As Fantine, her role may not be big, but Hathaway arguably delivers the film's most poignant, wrenching performance, and now you can enjoy it in full.

"I don't know that there's any secrets to it it's just a pulse, it's a vein that you follow. In my case, there was no way I could relate to what my character was going through, I have a very happy, successful life and I don't have any children I've had to give up or keep and so what I did was try to get inside the reality of her story as it exists in our world."

This is why you can’t pay too much attention to the buzz and get all wrapped up in Twitter noise that all of sudden made everyone go, “Oscar frontrunner!” Early screenings of “Les Miserables” did provoke audiences to burst into applause after certain song performances and yes, many were in tears by the end of the film. And that’s because Tom Hooper’s “Les Miserables” has two incredible sequences (both of which audiences thundered over in our early screening), but the rest of the movie? Well, maybe not so much.

Let the speculatin' begin (again). During the entire press run for Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight Rises," the drum beat played by everyone around the picture, from the director through each member of the cast, was that it was the end. There would be no fourth movie. Christian Bale said he wouldn't suit up again (unless Nolan wanted him to) and even with Joseph Gordon-Levitt revealed to be Robin/the new Batman, the actor insisted that there was no need for any spinoffs. Never say never, we suppose...there may be something transpiring....

Nope, it's not July. Given the amount of "The Dark Knight Rises" bits and pieces that have landed in the last week or so, you might think the movie was heading to theaters. But it's on its way to stores, and to help get the word out, a plethora of material has made its way online, including: three unreleased posters, a behind-the-scenes set building montage, 45 behind-the-scenes pics from the Bane vs. Batman showdown; a featurette about Tom Hardy's transformation into Bane as well as a look at the football field explosion. And yes, there's more.

It's been quite a year for Anne Hathaway, and for any actress, toplining (and some would argue stealing the show) Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight Rises" would have been more than enough. But the actress just hosted "Saturday Night Live" over the weekend (featuring that Rihanna performance against a desktop screensaver from seven years ago) and is getting into the Oscar fray with "Les Misérables." And next year? If all goes according to plan, she'll be working with a guy you may have heard of named Steven Spielberg.

We gotta ask...what's going with Éponine? As Universal continues going hard on the marketing campaign for "Les Miserables," Samantha Barks seems conspicuously absent from much of it. Secret weapon or stumbling block? Here's hoping for the former, but unfortunately, she isn't in this latest batch of promo images for the movie, snapped by the legendary Annie Leibovtiz for Vogue.

For one of the big box-office and awards hopes of the Christmas season, "Les Miserables" has been keeping its cards close to its chest, with only a single teaser trailer, and some scattered TV spots and featurettes, showing a glimpse of "The King's Speech" director Tom Hooper's cinematic take on the long running musical adaptation of the Victor Hugo novel. It's not entirely surprising, given that the film only wrapped in July, and the filmmakers are chasing a punishing post-production schedule.

As the fall movie season has heated up, we've examined a number of the high profile titles of the next few months, taking a look so far at "Lincoln," 'Skyfall," "Flight," "Wreck-It Ralph" and "Django Unchained," with verdicts on the first three having already come in (you can now read our reviews of the Spielberg, the Bond and the Zemeckis). With November's movies present and accounted for, we're now looking a little further into the future, with one of the Christmas Day releases -- "Les Misérables."
