CALLIN' IT: Zac Efron & Hugh Jackman's 'The Greatest Showman' Will Be The Showstopping Film Of 2017
The first trailer for The Greatest Showman, the story of P.T. Barnum, the founder of the celebrated Barnum & Bailey Circus, is finally here — and it's breathtaking.
Starring Hugh Jackman as the savvy businessman and ringleader, the movie musical looks every bit as whimsical and show-stopping as a biopic about the man who founded the circus should look. The film also features original music from the Oscar- and Tony-winning duo Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. But it's Zac Efron and Zendaya who steal the show in this trailer.
He's a playwright, she's a trapeze artist — and they're unlikely lovebirds who, judging from this trailer, have one truly dazzling meet-cute.
Honestly, I would have run away to join the circus years ago if I knew there was a possibility I'd meet Zac Efron.
The Greatest Showman hits theaters this Christmas.
