Thus far, the marketing for Universal's upcoming Oscar hopeful "Les Misérables" has been spot on. Promising epic grandeur, emotional and exquisite production values, all with a top flight cast, excitement has been running high. And then there's this....

A couple new posters for the film has arrived and it looks like Sacha Baron Cohen and Helena Bonham Carter just walked in off the set of a Tim Burton movie (or Bonham Carter might have fallen into some shrubbery before this photo was taken). The pair star as the Thernardiers, the "villains" of the film, who are tasked with looking after Fantine's (Anne Hathaway) daughter Cosette (Amanda Seyfried), but essentially treat her like dirt while favoring their own offspring Éponine (Samantha Barks), leading to rather tragic consequences. With Cohen and Carter in the roles, this could really go either way...meanwhile, the other one sheet showcases Cosette along with Marius (Eddie Redmayne), her love interest.

Anyway, we'll see the results when "Les Misérables" opens on Christmas Day. [Huffington Post]
