The film tells the story of iconic entertainer and promoter P.T. Barnum (Jackman), and his legendary rise to fame from his humble roots as a menial office worker to becoming one of the most influential show business mavericks in America.
In fact, according to this spellbinding first look at the musical epic, Barnum claims to have invented the term "show business."
If the first trailer is any indication, this bold, bombastic bio-pic really celebrates Barnum's unique vision -- as Jackman's Barnum says, "No one ever made a difference by being like everyone else."
Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson and Zendaya star in filmmaker Michael Gracey's directorial debut. The Greatest Showman rolls into theaters Christmas Day.
