hmm I like "Epilogue" but it does verge on being over sentimental and a tad unreal at times. I think Cosette and Marius don't add much to the scene although I appreciate it is faithful to the book. I should add most of the non musical movie version don't have the scene at all and end with Javert's suicide.

I wish they would have done the full 1987 score for the movie rather than edit (or in the case of Dog Eat Dog, totally cut) the songs.

It's sold incredibly well. I am still wondering if a director's cut will be announced for a November/early December release?

It was the Blu-Ray that had the special features.

Is there a extended version coming out for some reasons I see this one as too short, I am probably enjoying it too much.

There are some special features on one of the DVD versions as well, but it was only sold in Sainsburys

Just to let you know it will be showing at Cineworld cinema's on Thursday 19th September 2013 for one day only. At all of their cinema's except Aberdeen - Queens Links, Chelsea, Haymarket and Glasgow Science Centre.

The price for 2 people with 2 small drinks and a regular popcorn is 10 if you book online or 11.10 in the cinema.

Booking is open at most cinemas and all cinemas should be up by Tuesday.

It always sounds better in the cinema.

Part of a season of popular films from this year returning for one day only. I think it may have been a poll to choose the films.Last week it was The Great Gatsby. Others include The Heat and Man OF Steel.

It is part of Cineworld's Take 2 Thursday which basically shows a different movie from earlier in the year every Thursday with a 2 for 10 ticket deal and free food. It is a 6 week initial trial but I think if it's popular they might go further back. They are apparently trying to secure E.T.

19th September - Les Miserables
26th September - Behind The Candelabra
3rd October - Man of Steel
10th October - Now You See Me
17th October - The Heat

Hi all - I'm a huge Les Mis fan. Seen the show about six or seven times over the years and thought the movie was a fantastic screen version of the musical. I found something awesome on Youtube last night that I thought people here might be interested in - the first peformance of the show during the 1985 previews. You can listen to the complete recording of this rare gem here:

I know she's not to everyone's taste but I think Frances Ruffelle is particuarly stunning in this. She's always going to be my favourite stage Eponine purely for the rawness she brought to the role.

I loved the movie and just checked IMDB, someone came across this on the US amazon store:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...w_bottom_links

It's a new edition to be released in February, no details at all, other than it's estimated at 5 HOURS LONG. Surely that can't be the extended director's cut!?
