Most of this was filmed on really rather wide lenses. The IMAX release could seem incredibly claustrophobic.
Also, do listen carefully to the singing. Hooper recorded the vocals live on set wherever possible, but I think you’ll start to get a sense that it wasn’t always so easy and a little bit of studio time was necessary.
Either that or these headphones and my ears are teaming up to play a trick on me.
Les Miserables opens in the US on Christmas day and in the UK on January 11th. Can’t wait.
