Les Mis Poster

Get ready for a Misérables holiday season.

The release date for Tom Hooper’s big screen musical adaptation of Les Misérables has been moved from Dec. 14 to Dec. 25 to make it a very merry Christmas for all. The film, which is based on both the musical and Victor Hugo novel of the same name, features a strong ensemble cast that includes Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean, Russell Crowe as Inspector Javert, and Anne Hathaway as Fantine.

Set during the 19th century, Les Misérables tells the story of the prisoner Valjean, who has been on the run for decades from Javert. When Fantine asks Valjean to take care of her daughter, all of their lives are irrevocably altered.

Les Misérables will now open opposite Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained.
