Les Misérables

  1. Hugh Jackman Performing Wolverine: The Musical Is The One Les Mis Parody To Rule Them All

    Get excited for him to rhyme "fans" with "Hugh Jack-man."

    You should have clicked the play button immediately, but in case you need more convincing: it's Hugh Jackman singing about being Wolverine to the tune of "Who Am I?" from Les Mis. Yup. The best part isn't even the cheeseball lyrics about his diet and exercise routine, it's watching Jackman try to get through them without breaking character.

  2. In Which Hugh Jackman Sings About Wolverine, Les Mis Style [Video]

    I don't know about you guys, but I am looking forward to the debut of Les Mutantes, a sung-through Broadway spectacle chronicling the struggles of bourgeois X-Gene carriers as they rebel against the Homo sapiens sapiens aristocracy. (via io9)

  3. Theater Dorks, Come Forth: Sesame Street Did a Les Mis Parody

    it's time to play the music

    And it's more filled with more food puns than that time Peeta in their Catching Fire was an actual piece of pita bread. Jean Bon Bon. Flantine. (via: voice.fan.tv) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  5. Les Misérables With Lightsabers: The Musical

    Just Go With It

    Les Misérables meets Star Wars in a big way. Somehow, I don't think Victor Hugo ever saw his work going quite this way. But don't worry, Victor ol' chap, believe us when we say, this is great. Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  6. The Creator of Veronica Mars Is Doing a Modern-Day Les Misérables TV Show For Fox

    what is this I don't even

    If you're at all familiar with the Les Misérables fandom, you'll know that there are a lot of modern-day AU fanfics. Like a lot. People love writing Victor Hugo's unjustly persecuted criminal, law-obsessed detective, and merry band of revolutionaries (mostly the revolutionaries) into a current setting where everyone has cell phones and laptops and they don't all die. And now a modern-day version of Les Misérables is happening. As a TV show. On Fox. By Veronica Mars showrunner Rob Thomas. The synopsis sounds kind of ridiculous, but I don't know if I mean that in a good way or a bad way. An modern-day Les Misérables TV show. My brain doesn't know what it's doing.

  8. Honest Trailer of Les Misérables Might Be Better Than Les Misérables, Definitely Funnier

    I didn't catch Les Misérables in theaters, and now thanks to this new honest trailer of the movie, I no longer regret it. In the spirit of the all-singing all-dancing movie, most of the trailer is sung to the tune of songs from the movie, and it's also longer than it needs to be. Four minutes is a lot to ask from someone watching a trailer, even a fake honest one, but there are enough quality jokes spaced out that you won't feel cheated at the end of it.

  10. Gollum Mourns the Loss of His Precious By Singing “I Dreamed a Dream” from Les Misérables. Like You Do. [VIDEO]

    My Precious!

    It took me a few seconds to get into YouTube user Ijameswalters, as Gollum, singing "I Dreamed a Dream" from Les Misérables. But then he changed the "I"s to "we"s and the lyrics started mentioning nasty Hobbitses, and by 3:20 I'd completely lost it.

  11. Get Caught Up With the Oscar Nominated Films You Missed With These Adorable Children

    The Oscars are this Sunday, and I for one am woefully unprepared to make my picks in the annual bet I have with my friends. I have seen almost literally none of the films nominated this year, and I only have a few days left to get caught up if I'm going to stand a chance at winning the coveted prize of lunch at the local Chinese buffet. Thankfully, the tiny folks at Copycat Kidz have put together a highlight reel of sorts to cover the major players in this year's Academy Awards.

  12. The South Korean Air Force Puts Us All to Shame, Does a Parody of Les Misérables [VIDEO]

    i'll just leave this here

    It's called Les Militaribles. I'm not really sure what else I can say about it, except that it makes snow really, really dramatic. East coasters affected by the winter storm should watch it and be glad they're indoors at their computers and not out shoveling snow for hours on end like poor Jean Valjean.

    Here's the first pic from Jim Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive, starring Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton as, you guessed it, vampire lovers. Named Adam and Eve, incidentally. No release date for this one yet, sorry folks. (/Film)

  14. Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Lawrence, Beasts of the Southern Wild Pick Up Oscar Nominations

    Oh Hollywood

    I'm feeling kind of chipper and awake this morning, and I think it's because the Oscar nominations were announced. As much as I believe they're just a meaningless mutual appreciation society for Hollywood types, every year around this time I get unspeakably excited about them. I think the Academy might be beaming radio signals into my head or something.

  15. Anne Hathaway Still Weeps When She Watches Les Mis Just Like Any Other Audience Member

    It's A World of Laughter A World of Tears

    I've heard tell of the Les Miserables preview screenings, where members of the movie's production became puzzled at a soft rustling that spread throughout the audience during I Dreamed a Dream, the song in which the downtrodden Fantine admits her complete hopelessness in the face of fate. They soon realized that rustling sound... is what it sounds like when sixty people all try to conceal the fact that they are weeping at the same time. Now, I'm a person who I Dreamed it up the last time I went to karaoke, and whose mother sang Bring Him Home as a lullaby, and even I'm becoming less confident that I'll be able to make it through Les Miserables emotionally aloof. So it doesn't surprise me that Anne Hathaway, the actress who plays Fantine, has trouble getting through the thing.

  16. Benedict Cumberbatch, The Hunger Games, Other Geek-Friendly Things Pick Up Golden Globe Nominations

    Not all that glitters is gold

    This morning saw the announcement of the nominees for the 2013 Golden Globe Awards, the lighter, boozier, less important cousin of the Oscars. (Hey, it makes a difference that attendees can drink at the former but not the latter.) Typical awards season films like Lincoln and Silver Linings Playbook picked up plenty of noms, but so did some more niche-interest (read: Geeky) fare. The awards show, taking place on January 13th, is being hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. They did a short video promoting the Globes, which you can check out under the jump along with a rundown of the geeky movies, people, and shows to be nominated.

  17. Anne Hathaway Answers and Deflects Awkward, Creepy Questions About Her “Wardrobe Malfunction” Like a Boss

    For great justice

    It was obviously an unfortunate incident. It kind of made me sad on two accounts. One was that I was very sad that we live in an age when someone takes a picture of another person in a vulnerable moment and rather than delete it, and do the decent thing, sells it. And I’m sorry that we live in a culture that commodifies sexuality of unwilling participants, which takes us back to ‘Les Mis,’ because that’s what my character is. -- Anne Hathaway, on the Today Show. Matt Lauer greeted Anne Hathaway this morning by saying "Nice to see you. Seen a lot of you lately," which is a pretty freakin' awful way to refer to the fact that a photographer upskirted her during a Les Miserables premiere and now there is a picture of her private parts everywhere. Hathaway's body language clearly communicates that this is an issue she'd rather not talk about, but, like a true master of interview judo, she slams the audience with the bigger picture and then dovetails straight into talking about her work. You know, where she strives to get audiences to respond to her characters as if they were real human beings with emotions and dreams, and not just objects for our consumption. I know what .gif this calls for! Previously in Anne Hathaway

  19. First Official Picture of Wolverine From The Wolverine Has Claws, Muscles, Stiff Hair

    i'll just leave this here

    Lets play a game: which one of these is a candid set photo from The Wolverine, and which one is from Les Miserables? Probably if you're paying enough attention to either movie you can pick it out easy, but if not, you could absolutely be forgiven for thinking these are both from the same post apocalyptic Hugh Jackman flick. The good news now is that there's an official picture of Wolverine from The Wolverine, complete with all the things you'd want from a picture of Wolverine.
