If the trailer wasn’t enough here are a few more reasons.
2. Live Singing
Actors sing everything LIVE, and yes it is a big deal.
3. Amazing Cinematography
Its bigger and better - war scenes, slaves pulling huge ships, men on horseback!
It’s christmas, for your eyes people.
4. Borat and Bellatrix
You get to see the brilliance of Sacha Baron Cohen and Helena Bonham Carter as they play the roles of Thenardier and Madame Thenardier respectively. It’s a pairing made in movie star heaven.
5. Eddie (hearthrob) Redmayne
If you haven’t seen his face before, you are going to be seeing it a lot more often. He starred in “My Week With Marilyn” earlier this year and seems unstoppable. He is delightfully adorable and smokin’ hot.
6. The Whole Freakin Cast
Am I getting my point across…the actors assembled are fabulous. What you didn’t think Hollywood stars could sing? The cast features some veterans of the stage,such as Hugh Jackman, as well as some newcomers. Together they make up this amazing and fresh cast.
7. Costumes Costumes Costumes
Obviously the story is set in the early 1800’s- so your outfits must fit. I don’t know what will be more impressive ; the singing, sets, or costumes?
