Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption - a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. Hugh Jackman plays ex-prisoner Jean Valjean, hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert (Russell Crowe) after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine's (Anne Hathaway) young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever.
Directed by Oscar-winning director Tom Hooper (The King's Speech), Les Miserables stars Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried and Eddie Redmayne.
Les Misérables is currently scheduled for release on 18 January 2013 in South Africa.
Taking centre stage in the trailer is Anne Hathaway's haunting rendition of the iconic I Dreamed A Dream. Watch the trailer below.
