Here’s an extended look at the upcoming musical, and it’s a knockout. Viewers are taken behind the scenes, where we see Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Russell Crowe, and Amanda Seyfried singing and explaining the process of creating the movie. Director Tom Hooper made the rather radical decision to have the cast sing live as they taped, as opposed to pre-recording the music and then lipsyncing to the playback, as has been done since the dawn of movie musicals. The result, everyone agrees, is something raw, powerful, and above all, true. I think this is going to be my favorite movie OF ALL TIME. Anyone else excited?
