I would love to just dump a nice clean, full HD trailer right here for you but we still don’t have a handle on this shit. So below find the unideal embed of the latest trailer for Tom Hooper’s Les Miserables.

This is an even more epic look at the film, covering many of the major cast members, the scale of the revolutionary backdrop, and giving even more of an idea what the location-recorded singing will feel like. It looks great, and this thing is sure to be a disruptive entry in the Oscar season as we move into 2013 after its Christmas Day release.

If you’re not up to speed on that whole thing- note that this is the first (or at least one of very very few?) major Hollywood musicals to record all of the singing on set, in the moment rather than pre-recording it and doing playback for filming. The idea is that the actors are much more free to perform while singing, resulting in a much more powerful experience. So far, it sounds very successful. More on that in the special behind-the-scenes trailer.
