My Vietnam excursion (11.19 through 11.30) means I’ll be missing out of the first wave of Les Miserables press & industry screenings, which will begin with a bang on Saturday, 11.24, or during the Thanksgiving time-off cycle. Universal has set 12.11 as the review embargo date although tweeting responses are cool from the get-go. Les Miz director Tom Hooper will be doing q & a’s before or after the six screenings slated for 11.24.
