In case you’re anxiously awaiting the Tom Hooper-helmed feature adaptation of “Les Misérables,” a new photo has dropped showing a rather angry looking Jean Valjean (Hugh Jackman) getting a little rough with Fantine (Anne Hathaway) – who looks eerily reminicient of a similarly balding Natalie Portman in “V For Vendetta.” Anyways, “Les Miserables” follows ex-prisoner Jean Valjean, who is ruthlessly hunted by policeman Javert (Russell Crowe) after he breaks parole. Valjean agrees to care for the factory worker Fantine’s young daughter, Cosette (Amanda Seyfried) – and oh, did we mention there is a TON of singing? The film drops just in time for the holidays on December 14th, and we’re interested to see if Hooper can bring this sweeping musical to the cinematic landscape successfully.
And if you haven’t gotten enough of the terrifying images of “The Orphanage” helmer Juan Antonio Bayona’s disaster dama “The Impossible,” a whole new batch have hit the web showcasing Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts in this tale of a family caught, with thousands of strangers, in one of the worst natural catastrophes of all time. There’s some behind-the-scenes shots of Bayona and crew onset, as well as some more of poor McGregor and Watts clinging for dear life as the natural disaster destroys their family and lives. “The Impossible” starts a limited run stateside on December 21st.
