The musical drama, The Greatest Showman, is just a little over a month away from being released inside a theater near you. Hugh Jackman stars in the film, which is inspired by a true story.
Jackman plays circus tycoon P.T. Barnum, who after losing his job, promises to give his family the life they deserve. It looks like one of those perfect, feel-good movies that come out around Christmas and make you feel all warm and inspired.
In addition to Jackman, you’ll also find Michelle Williams, Zac Efron, Rebecca Ferguson and Zendaya. The film was directed by Michael Gracey, and this will be his directorial debut. You have to start somewhere, right? And this is quite the stage to start on.
The Greatest Showman will hit theaters December 20, and it looks like it will be worth your money, especially if you’re a fan of musicals. Check out the synopsis and trailer below…
“Inspired by the imagination of P.T. Barnum, The Greatest Showman is an original musical that celebrates the birth of show business & tells of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a spectacle that became a worldwide sensation.”
