Les Miserables

WATCH: The first full-length Les Miserables trailer

Goose bumps. It takes one heck of a trailer to cause them but oh the first full trailer for director Tom Hooper's big-screen adaptation of Les Miserables does just that. My goose bumps had goose bumps.

While the first trailer used Anne Hathaway's take on "I Dreamed A Dream" to set the dramatic tone of the teaser, this newly released international trailer gives us a taste of a few of the other well-known songs from the award-winning musical including "Castle on a Cloud", "One Day More" and the rousing revolutionary anthem "Do You Hear The People Sing?"

The preview also gives fans a chance to hear some of the film's other stars in full voice. Watch (and listen) below as Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Eddie Redmayne, Amanda Seyfried, Samantha BarksIsabelle Allen (as Young Cosette) and Hathaway give us a hint of what to expect come December 25. We'd say Hooper's ground-breaking decision to have the actors record their vocals live on-set seems to have paid off, but judge for yourself now:

Is the trailer enough to have you manning the barricades come the film's release on Christmas Day? Weigh in below, then check out the latest Les Mis stills and character posters!
