The long-awaited British musical film version of the Broadway musical, “Les Miserables” debuted its first teaser trailer online and it features Anne Hathaway as Fantine singing “I Dreamed a Dream” over the footage of the film.
“Les Miserables” also stars Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean, Russell Crowe as Inspector Javert, and Amanda Seyfried as Cosette.
