Can't wait to see it...looks like they have done a great job bringing it to the screen.

I am super excited to see it. Mainly, because it looks to be brilliant, and also to see the reactions of the audience when they realize that Hugh Jackman can not only act, but he can sing very well as well (and dance and play the piano too).

I subbed keyboard in the first Broadway production for a little while way back when, and this movie looks thrilling! Don't know if they've reinstated the extra Gavroche music that was later on cut, but it looks like he did merit a quick clip in the trailer, so I hope so. I think the casting is brilliant. I worry about Crowe also, but who knows. Love the casting of SBC and HBC as the Thenardiers. It's a really awesome line up of great performers. Seems like it could really be mainstream huge, like the Chicago film was.

Not Kevin either!

This has extreme Oscar buzz. I think this is one Broadway adaptation that will be better on screen than on stage (I know that seems sacrilege!). With the scope of the story and scenery, I think a film can do a better job of depicting the story. If they keep the music intact (and it seems to be the case in trailers), this could be an amazing work that appeals to both Broadway afficionados and embraced by those that would never go to a show.

The live singing is definitely a big deal - I expect to see raw emotion unlike most films...a high bar to meet, but the trailers are setting it that way!

I don't think anyone need worry about Russell Crowe's voice. He sounds great to me!

I am also not Kevin, but I for one cannot wait to see this movie. Since DH and I will be celebrating this christmas by ourselves (couldn't get enough time off from his retail job and my bank job to make the three hour trip to see my parents and his will be in Dubai) I told him not to stay too comfy in PJ's cuz we are going to one of the Christmas day showings! I am stoked for this one! It's an amazing musical I was turned on to in 2011 and I've loved it ever since!

Yeah, *shrug* I thought the clip of Crowe sounds not good. Everyone else seems fine.

Soundtrack available

A friend posted on his FB wall this morning that Amazon had the MP3 version on sale for $5.

http://www.amazon.com/Les-Mis%C3%A9r...24876&sr=301-1

You can hear snippets of 20 of the songs there, and possibly even buy the whole thing.

I listened to the sample of Stars, and think Crowe sounds ok. Not as good as some other Javerts, but not horrible, either.

I bought the soundtrack today and thought everything sounded great with the exceptions of Stars which was terrible, and Master of the House, which was okay.
