When I first heard about them going into production on it I was kind of skeptical, but watching the full trailer, at Lincoln. It seemed like it could be really impressive.

I rarely tolerate musicals, but I'm curious about this one specifically for the tactic they chose for recording the singing.

Holy shit *scratches head* it actually looks...promising.

As a fan of the original (though it's been a long time)... i'd love to see if we're either going to get a 3 hour movie- or what they're leaving out!

The cast is incredible.  The cinematography is fabulous. 
But, the endless singing?  Not sure about that.  I don't mind a song or two unless it's an on stage opera, but,  I'll pass on endless singing. 
I do want to see it.  I'll just wait 'till I hear a few good critiques from friends or family. 

I've always loved the story.

Definitely looking forward to it. Laura and I caught the stage production in London earlier this year. I hadn't seen it since it was in Toronto over a decade ago. I loved it. Will definitely be going to see this in the theatre.

Saw it when it was on Broadway and can't wait to see the movie, since I saw the trailer when I went to see "Lincoln."

It is a musical... but Evita has more singing.

Lincoln should at the very least win for Best Cinematography.

Just the lighting alone warped my fragile little mind...

Read a review of the movie (limited showing in NYC) and the critic said that Anne Hathaway (a) sets a new standard for her singing of "I dreamed a dream..." and (b) she's got to be the front-runner for the oscar for best supporting actress for her portrayal of Fantine.  Certainly what we hear of her singing during the trailer is impressive.

She is a very good vocalist, she was up for the part of Christine in the film version of Phantom, but was considered too old for the part. Gorgeous voice.

I've never been to a musical and normally have no interest whatsoever in musicals as movies (I'm a dude after all wink), but I'm a huge music fan and the songs in the trailer made me take notice.  I think if it was just a repeat of the stage version songs, I wouldn't consider it at all.  But from that trailer, it sounds like the music in this will have so much emotion I would actually go see it with my daughters if they suggested it. 

I can't suggest it of course...I mean, no reason to have to turn my "man-card" in at this point...right?
