With director Tom Hooper’s adaptation of Les Miserables opening Christmas Day, Universal has just released five clips and they've started showing the film to critics around the country.  As we previously reported, reaction to the first screening at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall was followed by raucous applause with the principal cast taking the stage to a standing ovation at the end of the film.  The other night I caught a screening and can confirm Les Mis is the real deal and Anne Hathaway is easily the front runner to win the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.  In addition, the film is going to be nominated for a ton of other awards and Hooper is going to walk away from this being offered everything in Hollywood.  In the coming weeks I'll be running exclusive interviews with some of the cast and filmmakers, but until then, check out the clips. »
