Trailer: Hugh Jackman's Barnum biopic”

Hugh Jackman stars as P.T. Barnum, the founder of the famous traveling circus and self-ascribed "Greatest Show on Earth", as he risks his career and reputation to create the beloved Barnum & Bailey Circus.

P.T. Barnum's life story is getting a fictional adaptation with The Greatest Showman, an original musical film about the man behind the modern circus. Pulling the ropes behind the camera, on the other hand, is upcoming Australian filmmaker Michael Gracey, while the script is co-written by Michael Arndt (Toy Story 3), Jenny Bicks (Rio 2), and Bill Condon (Dreamgirls).

Those songs, by the way, are written by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.

Showcasing a stunning score from Academy & Tony Award-winners Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (La La Land, Dear Evan Hansen), The Greatest Showman stars Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson and Zendaya, and arrives in United Kingdom cinemas Boxing Day.

On the whole, this film looks to be a great piece of glossy and melodramatic storytelling.

It was P.T. Barnum's goal to bring smiles to the faces in the audience - did this trailer do that for you?

We know Hugh Jackman can act, and he can sing, winning two Tony Awards, and more so than ever... the performer can put on a show. Just hit the buttons on the top of this page.
