Giveaway: Les Miserables Movie early screening 12/18!

Seattle Pockets readers have a chance to catch an early viewing of the new Les Miserables movie on December 18th at Pacific Place!

I can’t wait to see Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman, Amanda Seyfried, Helena Bonham Carter, Sasha Baron Cohen (YES!) and Aaron Tveit (who some may know from his lead role in Catch Me If You Can that premiered here in Seattle at The 5th Avenue Theatre) in this epic story with songs that pluck at the fiber of my being.

I heard from a friend and previous boss (who has years of experience working in the musical theatre field) that she loved it – she’s got fantastic taste, so I’m now 100x more excited to see the film! Check out the trailer here (I won’t watch it as I want to be surprised!)

  1. I cannot wait to watch the movie, I have been waiting all year. I can’t wait to hear “I Dreamed a Dream”. But mostly, I can’t wait to see Anne Hathaway’s Oscar-buzzing acting, she is great actress, who can sing and act, and I could not think of a more perfect person for the role than Anne.

    Thank you!

  2. I clicked the link and watched the first few seconds of the trailer. The first notes of a woebegone Anne Hathaway singing I Dreamed a Dream were all I needed to get my heart fluttering with excitement! I turned it off. I don’t want to spoil any of the magic by watching the clips out of context. This looks awesome!

  3. I just saw CWU drama students perform Red and Black and do a fantastic job. Made me excited about Les Miz again. Can’t wait to see Sasha Baren Cohen in another musical role.

  4. I’m really curious to see Aaron Tveit pull off Enjolras! I saw him in “Catch Me” multiple times (thanks to student rush!) and even met him once so it’s very cool to see him in such a huge movie. And of course everything else the promising cast and the epic musical has to offer is making for one big build-up.

  5. I am entirely curious about Samantha Banks- she seems like she is more than capable o holding her own against the more known performers. And of course HUGH! And Anne- such a wonderful unfolding of this part of her skills and interests.

  6. I’m excited for the whole thing but I think I an most excited about Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe. They are both such intensely talented performers. And I love love love Helena Bonham Carter. She’s just so weird.

  7. Super curious about Samantha Barks but of course Hugh has been talking about this fabulous role for the last year and I can’t wait to see him in it! I leaned on the orchestra pit when I was 7 in NY just to be closer to the action. LOVE THIS MUSICAL!

  8. I’m most excited to see what changes or adaptations they add, if any. Wonder how modern the feel of it will be. (Also haven’t watched any trailers)

  9. I am BEYOND excited for this movie adaptation of the musical. I’m looking forward to so many things about this movie such as Anne Hathaway as Fantine and “I Dreamed A Dream”, but I’m very interested to see Sacha Baron Cohen as Thénardier and his rendition of “Master of the House”. That should be amusing.

  10. Can’t wait to see both Anne Hathaway and Hugh Jackman in action – cannot believe they do all the singing themselves, and live! So impressive. Based on what I heard in the trailer, I don’t think it will disappoint!

  11. I have been looking forward to hearing Hugh Jackman sing this score! I’m also really curious to see the different takes on the songs to make them appropriate for the film as opposed to the stage.

  12. I was worried when I heard there was going to be a new Les Miserables movie made, but then I saw the trailer, and I was sooooooo upset that the premier date was so far away! I can’t wait to see it, it looks amazing!

  13. I’m excited to see Samantha Barks as Eponine. Eponine has always been the character that speaks to me the most across the book and the musical (despite the very different interpretations). She’s a sad character but she also has so much spirit. I have seen the musical and listened to the soundtrack so many times but every time I find something new to be amazed by. Earlier this week as I was listening to “A Little Fall of Rain,” I realize that the rain is an allegory for Eponine’s life: her parents are horrible people, she’s a grifter, she has dreams to be more than she is but can’t have them and the man she loves will never love her back. Yet in that moment during that song, none of it matters, it all falls on her but she doesn’t care because Marius is holding her and that’s enough.

  14. I love all the songs, especially the chorus numbers, but I think I’m most interested in seeing how they filmed “Empty Chairs at Empty Tables”.

    I’m very excited to see Colm Wilkinson as the Bishop, and the beautiful Aaron Tveit as the beautiful Enjolras.

    I’m going to be a hot mess within the first 5 minutes of this movie! I just know it!

  15. I’m am so excited to see the whole cast sing “One Day More.” It’s one of my favorite numbers. Of course, there’s also Anne Hathaway, who I keep on hearing amazing things about.

  16. “Javert, at last, we see each other plain, ‘M’sieur le Mayor’, you’ll wear a different chain” – dramatic moment! I’ve seen this on Broadway a number of times and it’s my favorite musical of all time. I listened to the soundtrack a hundred times before I saw the musical live!

  17. Oh my goodness – it’s impossible to pick just one thing. For starters, what I’ve seen *looks* beautiful, so I’m excited to see that. I’m excited to see/hear The Confrontation and very curious to see how they do Empty Chairs at Empty Tables.

  18. I have been in love with this musical since I was 14. I dreamed and longed to play Eponine so badly my parents gave me voice lessons. I never played the role but have seen it numerous times. Each time I cry
    and imagine loving that one person who can’t see it.

  19. I am excited about this entire cast! It is truly one of my favorite shows, and we’ve all been waiting for the film version for so long! I’m excited to see Samantha Barks as Eponine, and Anne Hathaway as Fantine! Actually…every single cast member makes me excited! Just soooooooo happy they didn’t cast Taylor Swift!

  20. I am excited to see Samantha Barks as Eponine! She is a broadway voice, an unknown, which is way better than the alternative, which was going to be Taylor Swift! The whole movie is just going to be so beautiful to watch! Can’t wait!!!!!
