No, it’s not a sequel to The Prestige. This time our all-time favorite hero is back in an original musical, The Greatest Showman, that is going to be released on 20th December 2017. Directed by Michael Gracey, this movie is inspired by the imaginations of P. T. Barnum. Hugh Jackman, starring as P. T. Barnum, tells us the story of how he invented the idea of show business and from nothing, how he transformed his dreams into a reality. The latest trailer has given us some clues about how the story follows.
The trailer begins with Hugh Jackman and his colleagues being fired from their jobs. Worrying about his family and their future, he decides to run a circus and gathers his crew. He choses individuals who are different from others and he tries to bring them under the spotlight. The story depicts the struggles, P. T. Barnum had to face in order to realize his dreams. This movie also focuses on the characters that helped P. T. Barnum to achieve his dream and put on some of his great shows.
Epic, right? Wait, that’s not all! This movie also focuses on the love story between Zac Efron and Zendaya, starring as P. T. Barnum’s crewmates.
The rest of the trailer is followed by some of their circus acts and dancing sequences with the original music from “La La Land” which makes you dance along! The fact that it has music of the last year’s best musical is certainly a cherry on the top. If anyone has been waiting for a musical, their wait is now over! Because “The Greatest Showman” will be released this December and let’s be honest, our expectations are quite high *fingers crossed*
