The Kidd here...
LES MISÉRABLES is one of the few Broadway classics I haven't managed to see on any level of stage performance (right up there with MISS SAIGON and CATS, which I swore I'd never see), so I don't have affinity for the source material. However, I am interested to see how Tom Hooper's adaptation does turn out in choosing to record all of the musical performances on set with live singing each take, as opposed to lip synching to playback on tracks recorded months in advance.
This extended look from Universal Pictures gives you a real solid look at the results of this decision, and, while musicals may not be for some of you, I'm getting the feeling that there's no way this cast won't deliver a solid film here.
