Character Poster Spotlight -“Les Misérables” and “Gangster Squad”

Greetings all.

Just yesterday we looked at new trailers and posters of the week. Today, the collection of character posters for Gangster Squad and the final collection of character posters for Les Misérables hit the web. I am actually looking forward to both of these movies and decided to show both sets of posters in addition to yesterday’s batch. (For yesterday’s “New Posters of the Week” post, click HERE).

Les Misérables:

Release date– December 25, 2012.

Cast– Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Russell Crowe and more.


Synopsis– Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption–a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. Jackman plays ex-prisoner Jean Valjean, hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert (Crowe) after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine’s (Hathaway) young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever.


Gangster Squad:

Release date– January 11, 2013.

Cast– Ryan Gosling, Sean Penn, Josh Brolin, Emma Stone and more.


Synopsis– Los Angeles, 1949. Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) runs the show in this town, reaping the ill-gotten gains from the drugs, the guns, the prostitutes and–if he has his way–every wire bet placed west of Chicago. And he does it all with the protection of not only his own paid goons, but also the police and the politicians who are under his control. It’s enough to intimidate even the bravest, street-hardened cop…except, perhaps, for the small, secret crew of LAPD outsiders led by Sgt. John O’Mara (Josh Brolin) and Jerry Wooters (Ryan Gosling), who come together to try to tear Cohen’s world apart. “Gangster Squad” is a colorful retelling of events surrounding the LAPD’s efforts to take back their nascent city from one of the most dangerous mafia bosses of all time.


I am looking forward to both of these movies, and, while I’m not the biggest fan of character posters, I liked the ones that they produced for this film! Which poster(s) do you like the most? Are you excited to see these movies within a month of each other? Let me know. Leave a comment.

Thanks for reading. Happy watching!
