Les Mis Soundtrack Storms Album Chart

Movie LP is sitting pretty at the top of the midweek charts...

It looks like there is more success on the way for Les Misérables, because the movie soundtrack has stormed to the top of the Official UK Album Chart.

The LP of songs sung by the cast of the film is currently sitting at the top of the midweek chart.

And according to Digital Spy, it has already sold 20,000 more copies than nearest rival, Emeli Sandé's Our Version Of Events.

If the album manages to hold onto the top spot until Sunday, it will be the first No 1 film cast recording since Madonna's Evita soundtrack 16 years ago.

The album features the dulcet tones of A-list stars Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe, among others.

Les Mis picked up two gongs at the Golden Globes on Sunday (13 January).
