“Les Miserables” will debut in China on Thursday.
The film will be shown in Chinese theaters without being dubbed in Chinese, according to the China Film Group Corporation.
The film starring Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Anne Hathaway is expected to attract a large number of moviegoers.
The delicate film is an adaptation of the enduring musical based on the French historical novel by Victor Hugo. The musical was created in the early 1980s and has been performed over 10,000 times across 42 countries.
During the 85th Academy Awards ceremony on Sunday, Hathaway was given an Academy Award for best supporting actress for her role in “Les Miserables.” The film also took awards for sound mixing and make up.
