But in the First film trailer only Anne Hathaway get the center-stage.


Development of Les Misérables began in the late 1980s. After the musical's 25th anniversary concert, producer Cameron Mackintoshannounced that the film resumed development. Hooper and Nicholson were approached in March 2011 and the main characters were cast in 2011. Principal photography of the film commenced in March 2012, and took place in various locations in Winchester, London and Portsmouth in England, as well as Paris in France.
Les Misérables is scheduled to be released on 14 December 2012.
