Universal Pictures has released an extended first look featurette for Les Miserables, director Tom Hooper's upcoming musical that may in fact reinvent the genre as a whole.

Stars Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Eddie Redmayne, Samantha Barks, Amanda Seyfried, and Tom Hooper talk about this innovative filming process in this video, which also includes behind-the-scenes footage.
