This isn’t so much a clip as it is the entire song; but for those interested, you can now watch the full “One Day More” scene from the movie-musical, Les Misérables. Needless to say, it’s a spoiler, so only watch if you’re content with viewing this pinnacle moment in the story out of context. Hugh Jackman is shown throughout, leading the way of the song and sounding gorgeous when proclaiming, “one day more!”
For those who didn’t catch my tweet about it, I was lucky enough to see Les Mis on Friday. I wrote up an experience on my website, if you’re interested thoughts from a mega-fan of the musical and novel. (Beware of spoilers!)
On December 18th – in Tokyo, Japan – Hugh Jackman and Les Misérables director Tom Hooper joined Japanese Crown Prince Naruhito for a special screening of the film. It is being reported as a “charity preview,” however I am unsure what the screening was funding. (I’m also not sure if this is considered the Japanese premiere that was supposed to happen today.) Several images from the event have been added to the gallery, with hopefully more to come.
Hugh Jackman appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” last night/this morning, and the interview was actually very refreshingly different from many recent ones. Instead of repeating stories fans have now heard numerous times on the Les Misérables press junket, he shared new stories — including his recent trip to Mount Fuji when visiting Japan with son, Oscar. He also talks about Australian nicknames from childhood, for himself and schoolmates. Great, great storytelling throughout and definitely worth checking out. Part two and three can be viewed below:
A bunch of new Les Misérables pictures have been released: film stills, behind the scenes photographs, and even a promotional image. Many of them are from an iBook, available to owners of iPads, but the pictures are now available for those who don’t have the Apple product. Some of the shots are slightly spoilery, so be cautious while looking through them (if you’re not familiar with the story of Les Mis).
Earlier today, December 15th, Les Misérables had a special Screen Actors Guild screening at the Writer’s Guide Theater in Beverly Hills. Director Tom Hooper was there along with his cast, consisting of Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, and Eddie Redmayne. Although there isn’t much footage from the Q&A they conducted in conjunction with the screening, you can watch two clips on YouTube (here & here) and check out images from the event. They seem like such a happy bunch!
The cast of Tom Hooper’s Les Misérables doesn’t need much encouragement to sing for their supper. In New York this week, they did it at lunch. But last night, December 14th, they declined to do so at a Spago dinner celebrating the film after a screening. ShowBiz411′s Leah Sydney reports that Hugh Jackman said he was “brokenhearted” about the terrible tragedy in Connecticut and that Anne Hathaway felt the same way.
Leah reports: “There was a definite pall over the night. Everyone was somber. They were going to sing, but didn’t out of respect. They were all gracious, and accepting kudos from many members of the Broadcast Film Critics Group, plus Mary Kay Place, Lainie Kazan, and many industry insiders.”
Moviefone’s Unscripted series are notoriously fun, pairing up co-stars to ask fan-submitted questions that, in turn, inspire actors to ask “unscripted” questions to one another. For Les Misérables, Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway were paired up. As expected, the resulting interview is great, as it’s obvious the two have a natural interest in one another as working actors and strong rapport to boot. It’s especially funny when they talk about some strange vocal warm-ups used on the set of Les Mis.
There are also four other, shorter interviews with more footage – including Anne’s brilliant question to Hugh, “Why are you so motivated to be modest?” – which you can watch below:
