Missing ‘La La Land’? ‘The Greatest Showman’ is coming

  • ASSOCIATED PRESS

    Hugh Jackman, star of the upcoming film “The Greatest Showman,” discussed the film during the 20th Century Fox presentation at CinemaCon 2017 at Caesars Palace today in Las Vegas.

LAS VEGAS >> ‘City of Stars’ might still be stuck in your head, but the Oscar-winning ‘La La Land’ songwriting duo Benj Pasek and Justin Paul already have another big screen musical on the horizon: “The Greatest Showman” starring Hugh Jackman as P.T. Barnum.

20th Century Fox today unveiled a fever dream of a trailer at CinemaCon for the musical drama, set to bow Christmas Day. The Michael Gracey-directed P.T. Barnum story looks like a slightly less kinetic “Moulin Rouge” but with all the requisite bright colors and elaborate song and dance numbers.

Jackman was on-site in Las Vegas to introduce the trailer. He called the film, in-the-making for seven years, a pop period piece of hyper-reality.

“The Greatest Showman” also stars Zac Efron, Zendaya, Michelle Williams and Rebecca Ferguson.
