“No one made a difference by being like everyone one else.”
The words of flamboyant showman P.T. Barnum ring true in the lavish new production of The Greatest Showman which finds Hugh Jackman unleashing his powerful vocal cords in a film that is pure imaginative bliss.
Check out the new trailer below:
Here’s the synopsis:
Following an unsuccessful career as a banker, Phineas Taylor Barnum (Hugh Jackman) takes a chance on his passions and creates the world’s most elaborate circus act, The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus.
Director Michael Gracey creates a world of spectacular wonder filled with colour and light that re-imagines the atmosphere of the world’s greatest circus act in The Greatest Showman. Along with Jackman, the two have put everything into this phenomenal piece of cinema. The Greatest Showman has long been Jackman’s passion project, and in addition to his stunning dramatic range, Jackman will also be able to use his musical-theatre background once more given the film’s musical setting.
Tony Award-winning songwriters Pasek and Paul are behind the film’s musical numbers, and from the taste of the new trailer, the music will be simply stunning to behold.
The Greatest Showman is a cinematic spectacle that audiences won’t soon forget so prepare to run away to the circus on December 26 in New Zealand and Australia.
