SHOTLIST(including transcript):-Universal1. Trailer excerpt: "Les Miserables"AuBC - NO ACCESS AUSTRALIASydney, Australia, 24 November 20122. SOUNDBITE (English) Hugh Jackman, Actor:"I have to say I was pretty blown away by it. I think everybody understands that musical movies is probably the Mount Everest of movies. There's so many elements that need to come together. Les Miserables has such pedigree not only as a work of literature but as probably one of the most successful musicals, stage musicals of all time. So there was a lot of risk and I loved it, I really loved it. It's difficult for me to watch a movie that I'm in but when you add singing onto that the stakes just go up even higher so the fact that I could relax and get into it I think says a lot and I just feel really proud to be part of it."Universal3.
