The actress, who plays Fantine in the film, takes centre stage in the promo and gives a brilliant rendition of signature tune 'I Dreamed A Dream' — made even more famous by Susan Boyle.

This isn't the first time we've heard Hathaway's impressive pipes though. She performed a musical 'comedy' sketch when she presented the critically panned Oscars in 2011.

Her fortunes have changed significantly since then and it's turning out to be a phenomenal few months for the actress. When she's not melting hearts with her singing voice she is starring as the iconic feline villain Catwoman in 'The Dark Knight Rises' — one of this year's most anticipated movies.

After watching this trailer, we may be adding another movie to our must-watch list.

Les  Miserables is due in UK cinemas on 7th December.
