'Les Miserables': New cast photos show Anne Hathaway and Amanda Seyfried in character

les-miserables-samantha-barks "Les Miserables" opens in theaters on December 14, but you don't have to wait to see the characters from your favorite musical. USA Today has posted some brand new pictures from the set, including Anne Hathaway as the tragic Fantine and Amanda Seyfried as Cosette.

We're also getting our first look at newcomer Samantha Barks as Eponine. If you recall, there was endless speculation about whether or not the role would go to Taylor Swift.

The film is based on the successful stage musical, which in turn is based on 1862 novel by Victor Hugo. There have been numerous film, theater and television adaptations in the past. The story is not as many think, based around the French Revolution, but rather a student uprising called the June Rebellion.

Check out the photos below and let us know what you think of the casting.
