Tom Hooper's hit film Les Misérables, starring Academy Award nominees Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway, will be released March 19 on Blu-ray, DVD and digitally, according to Blu-ray.com.
The $61 million film has grossed over $130,372,000 million domestically since its premiere on Dec. 25, 2012. Hathaway and Jackman recently earned Golden Globe Awards for their performances, while the film took the honor for Best Picture. The film, which received eight Academy Award nominations, is also Oscar-nominated for Best Picture.
The release of the 157-minute film will be a two-disc Blu-ray/DVD combo pack.
Les Misérables features Jackman as Valjean; Russell Crowe as Javert; Hathaway as Fantine; Aaron Tveit as Enjolras; Helena Bonham Carter as Madame Thenardier; Amanda Seyfried as Cosette; Eddie Redmayne as Marius; Samantha Barks as Eponine; George Blagden as student Grantaire; Sacha Baron Cohen as Thenardier; Daniel Huttlestone as child-hero Gavroche and original stage star Colm Wilkinson as the Bishop.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
