Entertainment Weekly have provided us with our first look at Hugh Jackman and Zac Efron in the forthcoming The Greatest Showman. The movie tells the story of American showman P.T. Barnum, played by Jackman, the founder of the circus that became the famous traveling Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus.
“Up until La La Land, everyone was saying there hasn’t been an original musical in 23 years,” Jackman said to Entertainment Weekly. “The prevailing thought in Hollywood was, unless you have a brand people know, it’s not a done thing. So it just took a long time,” he added.
The film also stars Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Natasha Liu Bordizzo, and Zendaya, and will be released in cinemas Stateside on Christmas Day 2017 and the UK in January 2018.
