The Greatest Showman Trailer

"Every one of us is special, and nobody is like any one of us. That's the point of my show." 20th Century Fox has debuted the first official trailer for The Greatest Showman, an exciting new musical telling the story of P.T. Barnum, the creator of the vaudeville show known as the circus. This musical will arrive on Christmas this year, and I'm excited to finally see some footage. Hugh Jackman stars as P.T. Barnum, with a huge ensemble cast featuring Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson, Paul Sparks, and Zendaya. With original songs by the Oscar-winning lyricists of La La Land, Benj Pasek & Justin Paul. It looks magnificent, I'm totally in for this! And I love that bit at the end about "show business." Bring it on.

Here's the first official trailer for Michael Gracey's The Greatest Showman, direct from Fox's YouTube:

The Greatest Showman Movie

Inspired by the imagination of P.T. Barnum, The Greatest Showman is an original musical that celebrates the birth of show business & tells of a visionary (Hugh Jackman) who rose from nothing to create a spectacle that became a worldwide sensation. The Greatest Showman (originally The Greatest Showman on Earth) is directed by newcomer Michael Gracey, a former visual effects supervisor making his feature directorial debut with this film. The screenplay is written by Jenny Bicks and Bill Condon; based on a story by Jenny Bicks. 20th Century Fox will premiere Gracey's The Greatest Showman in theaters everywhere starting on December 25th, 2017, Christmas Day, during the holidays this year. First impression of this?

I wonder if they'll show all the animal abuse done by Barnum's circus?

well, aren't we the little buzzkill?

Just keeping it real, mang. I'm sure Barnum was a visionary, but a lot of Hollywood biopics tend to gloss over the dark shit. People start to think that a historical movie is historically accurate and then we have people believing them and inadvertently rewriting history....

I think if they where going for that angle it wouldn't be called The Greatest Showman

DJROBL on Jun 28, 2017


Depends on the story you're telling. There's more to the circus than the animal abuse. I mean that was a horrific side to it but considering this was in the 1800's. There were actually humans in zoos in europe at this time along with the animals. Not to mention the condition of some of the zoos these animals were kept in. I don't think many people at that time were worried about the animals Now if someone did a serious movie on the animals or someone who was trying to help them back then that'd be great but I don't see why a musical based on his life would focus much on it as it wasn't a big deal at the time. As most people back then wouldn't have realised how fucked up it was. They were just amazed at what they were seeing

Very true....this one is obviously a fun "Poppinsy"-type story....

This looks heart warming. I'm a sucker for a good musical.

David Diaz on Jun 28, 2017


Looks old-fashioned. In a bad way. Although I like Michelle Williams very much and she could be the best reason to watch this ...

Was thinking the same thing. I like Michelle Williams but this looks really cheesy.

Efterklang on Jun 28, 2017


I guess, she's making a career in business. No need to blame her. And maybe, this looked good on paper. Who knows?

The preeminent enslaver of animals.

DAVIDPD on Jun 28, 2017


This looks amazing!! I'm excited

Wait a minute, this isn't the next Wolverine, what is Hugh Jackman doing in this?

Justin R on Jun 28, 2017


Couldn't finish that trailer with the awful music overlaying it. I'll pass.

I came here to see comments relating to animal abuse. I'm not disappointed in the slightest.

There are 2 and it's ultimately what shut them down.
