It’s a musical so comparisons will, undoubtedly, be made with the stage musical, Barnum. Who knows, they may even share some of the songs.
Even so, just sit back and enjoy the first trailer.
The film is still a good 5 months away. It’s release date was always thought of as a dumping ground of films that weren’t going to be spectacular box office films. This has changed over the last 10 years. Mainly down to Peter Jackson releasing Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies in this, usually, dead period of around Christmas.
“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.
