“Les Misérables” remains one of the big question marks of the early award season buzz. It has all of the prestige to be a power player by the time that nominations role around, but no one has seen it. Does anyone need to see it, though? The musical is the same beloved musical that’s been a Broadway staple for years, and the all-star cast should automatically elevate it into the awards conversation.
Either a way, ” Les Misérables ” is already considered a big presence in the pre-Oscar field, and with the marketing campaign beginning to pick up ahead of its Christmas Day release date, that should only grow more and more apparent.
The two latest posters for the mega-musical feature two iconic couples from the show. The first gives us our first look at Madame and Monsieur Thénardier, played by Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen. The other focuses on the romantic lead couple, Marius and Cosette, played by Eddie Redmayne and Amanda Seyfried.
