Everyone waited eagerly in spite of the cold temperatures in London for the start of the Les Miserables Premiere. This latest movie from the award-winning director Tom Hooper was shown in two of the most popular theaters of London, Odeon and Empire Cinemas of Leicester Square.
Stars and guests dazzle at the premiereAll the actors of the movie braved a wintry evening in London as they attended its twin screenings at the two popular London cinemas. The Les Miserables leads, Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman, and Russell Crowe, walked the Red Carpet and made a tour of the twin theaters. They were joined by other Les Miz stars, like Samantha Barks, Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne, Sacha Baron Cohen, and Helena Bonham Carter.Les Miserables Premiere at Odeon & Empire Cinemas of Leicester SquareVIPs in AttendanceWorking Title head Eric Fellner came with Tim Bevan and Debra Hayward to start the event. Fellner was thankful to Bevan for his efforts in making the film a reality. Attending the movie premiere were the people behind the firm’s musical version, musical producer Cameron Mackintosh; and his musical associates Claude-Michel Schonberg, Herbert Kretzmer, and Alain Boublil. 
Hooper said that he would have wanted to invite and celebrate the showing of the movie with sixty million fans of the famous musical; however, he wasn’t able to get a London theater that’s big enough for everyone. He revealed that he has realized his dream of making a movie that will be shown at Empire, a beloved theater ever since his youth. He even made jokes at the premiere, apologizing to the audience for the late showing since it has been the tradition for audiences to be kept waiting at London premieres. 
Strong Bet for the Oscar AwardsLes Miserables, the setting of which is France of the 19th Century, is expected to rake a number of Oscar nominations and wins. It is heralded by its makers as a story of struggles, loves, and broken dream. Based on a popular Victor Hugo novel on which the long-running London musical also originates from, screenplay was written by award winning writer William Nicholson.
After the Les Miserables premiere, actors and guests attended an after-movie party at Roundhouse in Northern London. The movie is expected to be shown in theaters all over the United States in December 25. International showing will be on January of 2013, starting at the UK in January 11.
