'Les Miserables'

Release Date: Dec. 25

The Plot: Victor Hugo’s timeless novel gets the big-screen musical treatment once again with director Tom Hooper ("The King’s Speech"). Here, Hugh Jackman plays an ex-con who raises the child (Amanda Seyfried) of an unwed mother (Anne Hathaway).

The Buzz: "Les Miserables'" stage productions have earned eight Tonys and reportedly more than $400 million in ticket grosses. Musicals can be a tough sell -- just see the 1998 movie version of "Les Miserables." Still, Hooper is an Oscar-winning director working with two trained stage talents (Jackman and Hathaway) and has a knack for pulling off period pieces. Said Hathaway to MTV, "This is the first time anyone has ever tried it like this."
