Your first look at Les Miserables is here! The epic Broadway hit is taking its turn on the big screen come December, with The King Speech’s Tom Hooper directing a star-studded cast. Anne Hathaway as Fantine is the main focus of this short trailer, with the actress belting out the story’s signature ballad “I Dreamed a Dream.” Coming from Anne, the tune is raw and emotional—as is seeing her signature long locks get chopped off on-screen (fast forward to 1:03). We also get glimpses of the rest of the Hollywood cast as French revolutionaries, including Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean, Russell Crowe as Javert, Amanda Seyfried as Cosette, and Helena Bonham Carter as Madame Thénardier. Watch the clip above and tell us: Do you think the film will live up to the musical?

We’ve never seen such stylish swashbuckling! While Cate Blanchett and Russell Crowe hit the red carpet for the world premiere of Robin Hood in Cannes this morning, wardrobe designer Janty Yates gave us inside scoop on the costumes she created for the action adventure flick. “[Blanchett's character] Maid Marion lives hand to mouth and wouldn’t have had new clothes for 10 years, so we wanted to give her clothes an earthy simplicity,” Yates said. The biggest challenge of transforming the stylish star into a penniless aristocrat? “Cate makes everything look gorgeous!” including a pair of custom Bruno Frisoni by Roger Vivier boots that were so beautiful Blanchett herself didn’t want to mess them up. “I was slightly freaked out about the amount of mud I had to wade through,” she said. While Blanchett’s costuming was simple, Crowe weighed in on every detail of his wardrobe. “Cate just got into her gear and went off, but Russell is very specific about what he wants,” remembered Yancy. “When I flew to Australia for his fitting, I took 23 suitcases so that we would have lots of choices. He has a great eye for detail.” Click on for more scoop on Blanchett and Crowe’s Robin Hood style (including those to-die-for Vivier boots!).
