‘The Greatest Showman’: Hugh Jackman is P.T. Barnum in new trailer

Hugh Jackman The Greatest Showman

While Hugh Jackman might be considered one of the greatest showmen in the history of multiple mediums, P.T. Barum held the title of THE GREATEST SHOWMAN for decades. 20th Century Fox has sent over a brand new trailer for the original musical. It opens on Boxing Day in Australia, and on Christmas Day in the US.

Featuring original musical from Academy Award winners Benji Pasek and Justin Paul (La La Land), this is a film that celebrates the birth of show business and the sense of wonder we feel when dreams come to life. Inspired by the ambition and imagination of P.T. Barnum, THE GREATEST SHOWMAN tells the story of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a mesmerising spectacle that became a worldwide sensation.

Doubling down on the local flavour, THE GREATEST SHOWMAN is directed by Australia’s Michael Gracey and stars Academy Award nominee Hugh Jackman. Jackman is joined by Academy Award nominee Michelle Williams, Zendaya, Zac Efron and Rebecca Ferguson.
