Just after JoRo unveiled all the new depressing images from Les Miserables, they’ve seen fit to release the trailer, clearly nonplussed by our publishing schedule. It features a lot of pretty Anne Hathaway warble and ugly Anne Hathway hair, and rain and gloom and poverty, and all I can think is how upset this probably makes Baz Luhrmann’s opulent Great Gatsby trailer. Leo and Mulligan are dancing up a storm, smoking cigarettes, drinking out of chalets, and along comes fucking Debbie Downer with her “life has killed a dream I dreamed.” It doesn’t have to be so bad, Fantine! Find a chandelier, get under it, and dance the night away to some dubstepped U2 song.
