The Greatest Showman is one of those movies we just cannot wait to see, especially after having watched the trailer that just looks breathtakingly amazing.
From the official synopsis, we already get an idea of what the movie will be about and how P.T. Barnum managed to change the life of so many with his idea.
“The Greatest Showman is a bold and original musical 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 mesmerizing spectacle that became a worldwide sensation.”
Besides looking amazing in the trailer, the movie has an amazing cast that is led by none other than Hugh Jackman, who shows off his musical talent as the greatest showman P.T. Barnum.
As the release of the movie is just a few weeks away, 20th Century Fox has released new character posters for The Greatest Showman and they undoubtedly look great!
The first two posters depict Hugh Jackman as P.T. Barnum and he looks like he was born for this role.
In the other pictures, we get a first glimpse of Zac Efron as Philip Carlyle along with Zendaya as Anne Wheeler, as well as Rebecca Ferguson as Jenny Lind. I especially like the one of Zac Efron and Zendaya, as it already gives us an idea of their talent and their relationship, though Rebecca Ferguson looks stunning in her poster too.
In the last poster, we get to see Michelle Williams as Charity Barnum along with Hugh Jackman’s P.T. Barnum. They surely are a good looking and probably very talented couple.
Next to the great posters and the amazing trailer, we have also already got the first two songs from the movie which we can listen to. Keala Settle, who plays the Bearded Woman, sings “This is Me” and if the song doesn’t make your day and get you in a good mood, I don’t know what will.
“The Greatest Show” is equally as good as “This is Me” and we get to hear our favorites sing this song. Zac Efron especially is someone I love to hear sing and I almost forgot that he could, as his High School Musical years are long gone. Also, Hugh Jackman is someone I can’t stop listening to, as well, so the song is definitely one for the win.
Jackman truly was born for this role and I cannot wait to see him and the rest of the cast in The Greatest Showman.
Check out the trailer below and listen to the songs to get ready for the greatest show we will see on the big screens soon!
The Greatest Showman will hit US theaters on Christmas Day 2017 and UK theaters on Boxing Day 2017.
