We've already seen most of the main cast of the movie highlighted on their own character posters. Now a new poster is released revealing the first look on the Thenardiers played by Sacha Baron Cohen and Helena Bonham Carter. See the poster after the jump.
Another poster is also released and like the poster above features another couple: Amanda Seyfried as Cosette and Eddie Redmayne as Marius.
Sacha and Helena's poster looks a little Tim Burtonish but I guess it is also a good effect for their characters. To those who are not familiar with the musical, the Thenardiers are portrayed as comic reliefs in the stage version unlike the original novel and movie which are rather serious to the extent that the Thenardiers are considered the true Villains of the story. So with those characterizations, these character designs can actually work well. On the other hand, I still have reservations about Amanda Seyfried playing Cosette and it remains to be a puzzle to me to how will she play this integral role. I know she has the talent and I saw a lot of her movies before that really stands out. But I'm still worried. I hope she can keep up with Eddie which is already a skilled and experienced stage performer. Opening in local cinemas on January 16, 2013, to be distributed by United International pictures through Solar Entertainment.
