Good to see more footage, Greenwich really looks the part. Don't much like the voice over... A little over the top Hollywood blockbustery for my liking.

I think Miss Saigon is quite likely (with perhaps a big budget tour before taking up residency in London along side), though do we really need a new version of My Fair Lady? Though that needs a revival in London soon, guessing the Curve production is thinking about transferring.

I like the film with Audrey Hepburn but I'm not opposed to a new film version. Some of the rumoured casting sounded good and I imagine if Les Mis is a success then I can see My Fair Lady being developed further but not before Saigon.

This link was posted on Twitter of a new trailer! Can't say I'm impressed with Russell Crowe's singing but everyone else sounds great. I'm really excited for this!

It looks amazing! Not sure at the moment about Russell Crowe from the clip in the trailer but he does have a good voice so i'm sure he'll do it justice.

The NBC police are the Javert of anal copyright protection.  It's called buzz, people!

Crowes voice form the above clip lacked malice - didn't sound like a comfortable baritone voice. More like a tenor singing down. Can anyone share to hearing his voice in any other projects or productions.

I just feel Helena Bonham Carter was mistaken casting.  She looks so Tim Burton in the brief bits we saw.  I recognize I am saying it without having seen her performance and I truly hope to eat my words.  But I'd bet a twenty the rave reviews for this will be qualified by remarks about Russell Crowe's adequate singing and HBC's resemblance to so many other characters she's played.  

And I may be alone in this but I could listen Amanda Seyfried's lovely, trilling voice all day.
