Les Miserables Cast To Perform Live At The Oscars
This year biggest musical event (after the series finale of Glee, of course), the film adaptation of Les Miserables, will continue its already impressive run during the Academy Awards ceremony next month when the stars of the film take to the stage to perform songs from the hit musical.
The film's stars Anne Hathaway and Hugh Jackman, who both have Oscar nominations for their roles in the film, will be making their second appearance at the annual awards ceremony together, having hosted the event together in 2009. Both stars won Golden Globes last Sunday for their performances in the movie, which has a total of eight nominations for the Oscars.
Hathaway and Jackman are expected to be joined by fellow stars Eddie Redmayne, who plays Marius, and Samantha Barks, who plays Eponine, however it has not yet been made clear what songs the ensemble will perform on the night.
On top of it's impressive awards sweep already, the film has performed admirably in the box office too, looking all the more likely to overtake Mamma Mia as the top grossing musical of all time over the coming weeks. In total the film brought in £8.1 million at the box office on it's opening weekend, surpassing Mamma Mia's opening intake by over £3m. So far the film has taken over $200m worldwide.
