As the ill-fated Fantine in Les Misérables, Anne Hathaway has a keen distinction: She delivers the long-running stage show's first-act lament "I Dreamed a Dream" in the upcoming, all-star movie version, whose trailer has just been released (see below, and turn up the volume).
From the sound of it, the actress and former Oscar host, 29, boasts an impressive set of pipes, and the number, which has been known to bring a tear to theater audiences, sounds as haunting as ever.
Hathaway costars in the musical epic alongside Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried, Sacha Baron Cohen, Colm Wilkinson and others.
