Russell Crowe bursts into song in 'Les Mis' trailer

Russell Crowe's been active in music as well as acting for years, but now the new international trailer for the upcoming "Les Miserables" film lets fans check out Crowe's song-belting talents for themselves.

Russell Crowe in "Les Miserables."

The two-and-a-half minute trailer also features Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman, and Amanda Seyfried, who all star in the film along with Crowe. Jackman plays Jean Valjean, the Frenchman jailed for years for stealing bread for his starving family, and Crowe plays police Inspector Javert, who makes it his life's pursuit to track Valjean down.

In the trailer, Crowe, Jackman, Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne and Samantha Banks are all seen singing snippets of the cast song "One Day More," while Hathaway sings a bit of "I Dreamed a Dream." (Sorry "Seinfeld" fans, no George Costanza singing "Master of the House.")

"Les Miserables" hits theaters Dec. 25.
