Don't waste perfectly good soda.
Especially in NY, god knows how much longer we'll be able to have that.
And hey, we got us a new thread! Any suggestions for new thread titles?
Les Miserables: Just 1 day (actually 67 days) more
Les Miserables: Empty threads at empty tables
Les Miserables: Do you hear the hypesters sing?
Les Miserables Thread #24601
Les Miserables: Taylor Swift will be in the sequel
It's a tough decision between these two.
My personal ranking of the likelihood of Oscar attention for Les Miserables castmembers:
1. Anne Hathaway - pretty obvious; a lot of people think she's the frontrunner for this, assuming the movie delivers.
2. Russell Crowe - if he sells the singing, that'll get a lot of favourable attention, and Javert's a juicy part.
3. Samantha Barks - never underestimate Eponine's popularity, though Hathaway has the advantage due to being more famous (and being the focus of advertising).
4. Hugh Jackman - I'm projecting all four of these to be nominated if the movie is a hit, but I think a Jackman victory is the least likely. It's hard to win Best Actor for a musical (hasn't happened since 1964), and unlike the other categories, Best Actor this year already has a number of real dramatic heavies present (Day-Lewis, Washington, Hawkes, etc.). The supporting categories are more open at this point.
The screenplay has been removed from the Universal site, and the thread discussing it has been deleted from the IMDb message board. Hmm!
I saved a copy. Haha, fools!
An interview with Mackintosh with many new Les Mis tidbits (he wanted Hugh as Javert apparently.
And one of the "convicts" tweets (he has a singing line, forget which one):
If she's not nominated I may have to send out Anne-thrax.
This looks F'n amazing I have to admit.
Pickups are being filmed.
So, no word on the trailer? (I'm not counting that unconfirmed information about the November release of the trailer).
Nope, no word yet. Last time they announced it was coming out about five days before it was released so maybe they'll do the same thing this time around.
Bunch of tweets from the "barricade boys" - sounds like they went back for ADR:
In the Estonian version of Pop Idol one guy sang "Stars" and qualified for the final, even though he was quite awful. It was exciting to see some Les Mis in that show, though.
Conversation between one of the convicts and a Lovely Lady on doing ADR:
Some new pictures there, I believe ... of Amanda&Eddie. And an interesting article in general.
Yeah, that's from the Entertainment Weekly article (in the link) that I think was posted in the previous thread. Here are two new ones:
Cosette and Marius found on tumblr.com:
And Enjolras from aarontveit.net:
Look out! Enjolras has a gun!
We get a new picture of Amanda&Eddie like every other week and they all look exactly the same ... they really should switch to releasing pictures of Thenardiers instead.
I REALLY hope some of this is online! Eddie is joining Anne at her show Wednesday night.
Yeah, I saw Harvey post about it yesterday on fb, though he never mentioned Eddie. He did mention everyone else.
Just like Hugh did, I want Anne to do selections from The Boy From Oz. In character as Peter Allen.
Watch out, broad sides of barns!
