Based on the hit Broadway show and of course, on Victor Hugo's novel, the film tells the story of an ex-convict Jean Valjean (Jackman) who attemps to escape his past and the clutches of Inspector Javert (Crowe) as the revolution brews. Crowe looks appropriately official with a jaunty hat as he rides a horse, while Jackman seems to have re-grown his beard from "The Fountain" to help achieve his raggedy look as the dude on the run. No looks yet at the rest of the starry cast -- Anne Hathaway, Sacha Baron Cohen, Amanda Seyfried, Helena Bonham Carter -- but the Brit papparazzi are surely on standby.
