Between the recently released international trailer for Les Miserables and Anne Hathaway's musical opening monologue during last weekend's episode of Saturday Night Live, we've had a couple of very entertaining reminders that Tom Hooper's feature adaptation of the beloved stage musical based on Victor Hugo's novel is on the way this holiday season. And now comes this beautiful photo spread, courtesy of Vogue and photographer Annie Leibovitz, which celebrates some of the characters featured in the film.
Vogue has a slide-show that shows off Liebovitz' photos, which feature some of the characters posing for portraits. Among them, we have Anne Hathaway as Fantine, looking tragic and alone, but also strong.
There's something about the posture that I really like about this one. Her back may be hunched a bit, but her head is up. And there's a distant look in her eyes. Dreaming a dream of time gone by, perhaps. Her hair is gone, as is her locket, but it looks like her hand still remembers where it used to be.
Here's Sacha Baron Cohen and Helena Bonham Carter as Madame and Monsieur Thenardier, the abusive innkeepers and caretakers (if you can call them that) of young Cosette.
What you see is what you get with these two characters.
And here we have Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean, on the run and taking young Cosette with him.
This one shows Amanda Seyfried and Eddie Redmayne as (grown) Cosette and Marius respectively.
Absolutely beautiful! We got to hear a few notes from Seyfried and Redmayne in the latest trailer for the film.

Les Miserables arrives in theaters December 25. More information can be found in our Blend Film Database.
