Tom Hooper's movie musical, which stars Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Anne Hathaway, is based on Victor Hugo's novel and the long-running stage production.
Set in 19th-century France, Les Misérables tells the story of former prisoner Jean Valjean (Jackman), who finds himself in a decades-long manhunt with policeman Inspector Javert (Crowe) when he breaks parole. Valjean's life changes when he agrees to take care of Fantine (Hathaway) young daughter Cosette.
IMAX tickets for Les Misérables will go on sale from Saturday, December 1. The movie also debuts in conventional cinema screens on January 11, while its US debut is set for December 25.
A recent preview screening at New York's Lincoln Centre reportedly brought a standing ovation from those in attendance.
