THE GREATEST SHOWMAN First Photos Hit The Web
Film follows the story of P.T Barnum, a visionary who rose from nothing to create a mesmerizing spectacle that became a worldwide sensation.
The Greatest Showman photos feature Hugh Jackman as P.T. Barnum, Zac Efron as Phillip, Barrumn’s partner, Michelle Williams, and Zendaya.
Jackman also spoke to EW and had this to say about the film:
“This was also a time in America where puritans kind of ruled and the circus was the equivalent of some dark-alley-strip-show kind of thing. We were clear from the beginning that this wouldn’t feel like a period movie or a historical piece.”
Showman is set throughout the mid-1800s, the songs from La La Land’s Oscar-winning songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul will sound like current pop hits:
“What would Barnum do now? I have an almost-12-year-old daughter. I wanted [the movie] to be as exciting for her as listening to Katy Perry’s new song.”
The Greatest Showman will hit theaters this coming Christmas
