Anne Hathaway is about to have a pretty good few months. The actress has been consistently charming, diverse and impressive on screen, but of late her showcases, from hosting a botched Oscars to films like "Love And Other Drugs" and "One Day," haven't quite worked, even if she's been pretty good in them. But in a couple of months, she's got the plum role of Catwoman in "The Dark Knight Rises," which is likely to win over the hearts and loins of the geek community.

The movie-musical is a difficult nut to crack. The genre's proven the undoing of great filmmakers like Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola, and, in the modern era, for every smash big-screen hit like "Chicago" or "Hairspray," there's a "Nine," a "Phantom of the Opera" or a "Rent" stinking up the joint. But this Christmas' big hope has the kind of pedigree that suggests it's got a better run at Oscar and box-office glory than most.

From sensual Catwoman to....not so sensual Fantine. Tom Hooper's big, Oscar-baiting musical "Les Miserables" continues to roll in front of cameras, and the press and paparazzi continue to be out in full force. Not only do we get a first look at remarkably skinny Anne Hathaway as Fantine, also boasting a rather rough-hewn hairstyle, Amanda Seyfried has also been snapped on set as Cosette. But perhaps the greatest bit is some video that has captured the best look at the film yet.

Though it will be a while yet before we hear how their pipes fair in the upcoming, big screen musical take on "Les Miserables," some new set photos at least gives us an idea of how stars Russell Crowe and Hugh Jackman will look in the upcoming movie.

'Les Miserables' Moves To Dec. 14th; 'Ten Year' Arrives Sept. 21st & 'Halloween 3D' Gets Taken Off The Calendar

A few changes on the calendar, so get out those dry-erase markers. First up, while every studio has been tiptoeing around "The Hobbit" and its mid-December release date, Universal has finally grabbed their nutsack and said "Fuck that," moving their star-powered musical "Les Miserables" back a week to December 14th. Put that in your pipe and smoke it Gandalf! Starring Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Sacha Baron Cohen, Amanda Seyfried, Helena Bonham Carter and more, not only does this have the red carpet appeal of an awards season player, it also has the Broadway history to make mad box office bling. That pic of Crowe up there isn't an official still, but holy shit we wish it was.

As you might have noticed, the 2011/2012 awards season is finally over: the Oscars were on Sunday night, "The Artist" was the big winner, Meryl Streep finally got her third statuette, and "Hugo" basically won everything else. And so we get to put all this talk of what might get nominated, what might win, and who will definitely win, to bed for a year.

When a director wins the Oscar for Best Director, what they choose for their next project is very interesting, and can say a lot about what they want to achieve in their career. Of course, for the likes of a Martin Scorsese or the Coen Brothers it's business as usual, but Danny Boyle used his newly acquired clout to get "127 Hours" made, while Kathryn Bigelow eyed two ambitious projects in "Triple Frontier" and "Kill Bin Laden" (which is shooting this year).

While, generally speaking, fans of the stage show have been positive about the cast that's been shaping up for "Les Miserables," Tom Hooper's follow-up to his Oscar-winning "The King's Speech," which sees him adapt the long running musical version of Victor Hugo's classic novel, there's been one sticking point; namely, the report that country-pop sensation Taylor Swift had been offered the role of Eponine, the spoiled little girl-turned-penniless waif who sings one of the musical's key numbers, "On My Own."

It might still be coming together, but the cast of the long-awaited film version of "Les Miserables," directed by "The King's Speech"'s Oscar winning director Tom Hooper, is what can politely be described as 'eclectic.' Two burly Australian leading men, Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe, have the lead roles, one a Broadway veteran, one a rock star hobbyist. Anne Hathaway, a gifted singer, albeit one with little stage musical experience, is also involved, while a rising star, Eddie Redmayne, an acclaimed actress, Helena Bonham Carter and a comedian, Sacha Baron Cohen, will likely take supporting roles, and "Mamma Mia" star Amanda Seyfried recently signed on, with fresh-faced popstar Taylor Swift mulling over an offer to join her.
