Share

There's all the attractive costumes and epic dancing that you could ever wish for in the P. T. Barnum story, and I for one can't wait for the film to hit cinemas next month. Trading mutants for musicals is Logan actor Hugh Jackman, who calls upon his Les Misérables experience in today's brand new trailer for the pic.

The cast also includes Michelle Williams (Manchester by the Sea), Rebecca Ferguson (The Girl on the Train), Paul Sparks (House of Cards), Keala Settle (Ricki and the Flash), and Gayle Rankin (The Meyerowitz Stories).

World's Oldest Wine Found in 8000-Year-Old Jars
Previously, the earliest evidence of wine-making was from pottery dating from about 7,000 years ago found in north-western Iran. Scientists say 8,000-year-old pottery fragments have revealed the earliest evidence of grape wine-making.

The musical film is based on the real-life story of showman PT Barnum, played by Jackman, who in 1919 established the famous Ringling Bros. and Barnum Bailey Circus, which became known as The Greatest Show on Earth.

Those songs, by the way, are written by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.

The Greatest Showman is set for release on December 20.

Bill Condon, a musical vet with credits on Chicago and Dreamgirls under his belt, co-wrote the script, but commercial director Michael Gracey will make his feature film debut directing the film. While this could have easily been a more realistic biopic, The Greatest Showman aims to showcase Barnum as a man who realized it was better to be different, and developed his circus to showcase unique and wonderful misfits.
