Opening today is director Tom Hooper’s fantastic adaptation of Les Miserables. Loaded with great performances and top notch filmmaking, Les Mis is absolutely a contender for all the year end awards and it would shock me if Anne Hathaway doesn’t win the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her incredible work as Fantine. Her one take rendition of “I Dreamed a Dream” was incredible and it’s the type of performance that’s unforgettable. For more on the film, here are five clips and all our previous coverage.
At the recent NYC press day for the film I did an exclusive interview with Eddie Redmayne (Marius). He talked about how he got the role, what it was like to go to school in Cambridge, the way he prefers to work, how he did his big song twenty-three times and it was the last take that got used in the movie, deleted scenes, future projects, and more. In addition, we talked about what it’s like being up for big roles in Marvel movies and his thoughts on the superhero genre. Hit the jump to either listen to the audio or read the transcript.
