Digitally mastered in 1080p, the Blu-ray shows Les Mis on a scale like never before. The musical follows the tale of Jean Valjean (Hugh Jackman) as he is doggedly hunted by self-righteous policeman Javert (Crowe) through fifteen years of instability, famine and disease in 19th Century France. The Blu-ray version will include exclusive featurettes to show the stories behind the songs, as well as interviews with the cast to discuss the daunting challenge of live performance and a piece on adapting the musical whilst maintaining the intensity of the original production.

Who did you think stole the show in Les Mis and why? Were you wowed by Hugh Jackman’s turn as Jean Valjean, or were you more impressed by Anne Hathaway’s performance as Fantine? Which other Hollywood stars would you like to have seen perform in Les Mis? Perhaps you were impressed by Gerard Butler’s appearance in Phantom of the Opera and think he could have made a steely Javert? Or maybe you think Jonny Depp could have replaced Sasha Baron Cohen as the feckless Thénardier following his appearance alongside Helena Bonham Carter in Sweeney Todd? Nicole Kidman plays the role of a tragic fallen woman in Moulin Rouge – would she have equalled Anne Hathaway as Fantine?
