Fans of the musical "Les Miserables" will have to wait a little longer for the latest big-screen adaptation of Victor Hugo's novel.

Though the film was originally scheduled to hit theaters nationwide on Dec. 14, Universal has decided to push back the release by several weeks, and the movie will now open on Christmas Day.

The film will star Hugh Jackman, Russel Crowe and Anne Hathaway. Director Tom Hooper, who won the Academy Award for Best Director for his work on "The King's Speech," will helm the adaptation.

Check out a trailer for the newest version of "Les Miserables" below.

"Les Miserables" will now have Christmas Day largely to itself after two other high-profile films slated to be released that day have been delayed. Director Baz Luhrmann's take on "The Great Gatsby" has moved to summer 2013. "Life of Pi," which is based on the bestselling book by Yann Martel, will now open Nov. 21.

The move for "Les Miserables" also leaves its former release date wide open for the other big film still set to premiere that day. "Lord of the Rings" prequel "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" will hit theaters on Dec. 14.

"Les Miserables" was most recently adapted for the big screen in 1998. That version, directed by Bille August, starred Uma Thurman, Liam Neeson, Geoffrey Rush and Claire Danes.
