This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Marius goes to the barricade at night, after they've already been established. Marius is present at Lamarque's funeral and takes part in the initial revolt of the June Rebellion.
   Javert quietly joins the revolutionaries as they head to the barricades, appearing to them as an unremarkable man in the Rue des Billettes. Javert volunteers to try and spy on the National Guard for the revolutionaries.
   Gavroche points Javert out to Enjolras, saying that the policeman has attempted to apprehend him on a few occasions. Gavroche points out Javert's true identity when the latter tries to give the revolutionaries false information concerning the intended attacks.
   Marius threatens to blow up the barricade with a gunpowder barrel during the first attack, uncaring of what will happen to him. Marius only attempts it as a desperate measure, not being shown to be suicidal.
   The dying Éponine tells Marius to stay with her quietly as she dies, hoping to not be seen by her brother Gavroche, and tells him to only look at Cosette's note after she dies. Éponine gives Cosette's note to Marius as soon as he notices her, and is seen dying by everyone at the barricade.
