Helmed by The King's Speech's Academy Award®-winning director, TOM HOOPER, "Les Misérables" stars HUGH JACKMAN as Jean Valjean, Oscar® winner RUSSELL CROWE as Javert, ANNE HATHAWAY as Fantine, AMANDA SEYFRIED as Cosette, EDDIE REDMAYNE as Marius, AARON TVEIT as Enjolras, and newcomer SAMANTHA BARKS as Eponine, with HELENA BONHAM CARTER as Madame Thénardier and SACHA BARON COHEN as Thénardier himself.

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 endurance 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.

The LES MISÉRABLES: HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK will be released on December 26 and is available from iTunes, GetMusic and JB-Hi Fi.
