With CinemaCon kicking off on Monday, we’ll be bringing you lots of coverage from the event throughout next week including interviews, panel recaps, and more. Steve is already in Las Vegas for the event, and while walking the floor he came across the very first promo poster for The King’s Speech director Tom Hooper’s big-budget movie musical Les Miserables. For those unaware, CinemaCon is a convention put on for all the major theater owners in order to get a look at what the studios have to offer for the rest of the year; it’s basically Comic-Con for theater owners. As such, this is just a very simple promo poster that’s pretty much just advertising the stellar cast and the fact that Les Mis is headed to the big screen this year.
Hit the jump to take a look at the promo poster, which is surely the first of many posters and standees we’ll be bringing you over the next few days. If you missed it, be sure to check out the recent set photos and videos which feature Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway singing the finale song. Les Miserables opens on December 14th.
Update: We’ve come across another version of the Les Miserable promo poster and added it after the jump
- Judd Apatow‘s This Is 40
- Carl Rinsch‘s 47 Ronin
- Woody Allen‘s To Rome With Love
- Martin McDonagh’s Seven Psychopaths and Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal‘s The Words starring Bradley Cooper
- Over 40 posters, banners and displays from CinemaCon 2012 including James Bond Skyfall, Dark Shadows, Moonrise Kingdom, Sparkle, That’s My Boy, Sinister, The Amazing Spider-Man, House at the End of the Street, The Host, Battleship, Looper, Step Up Revolution, Ted, Sinister, Here Comes the Boom, and so many more.
Here’s the synopsis for Les Miserables:
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. Jackman plays ex-prisoner Jean Valjean, hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert (Crowe) after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine’s (Hathaway) young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever.
