    A SPELLBINDING SPECTACLE AWAITS IN THE MOVIE MUSICAL “THE GREATEST SHOWMAN” ON JANUARY 31
    via press release


    Step into the most thrilling world of showbiz and how it all began in the most anticipated musical “The Greatest Showman” overflowing with a talented cast that includes Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson and Keala Settle. Directed by Michael Gracey, who makes his directorial film debut in “The Greatest Showman”, the larger-than-life musical movie also features original songs from Academy Award winners Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (who composed songs from the highly-acclaimed “La La Land”).


    “The Greatest Showman”, inspired by the legend and ambitions of America’s original pop-culture impresario, P.T. Barnum, is an inspirational rags-to-riches tale of a brash dreamer who rose from nothing to prove that anything you can envision is possible and that everyone, no matter how invisible, has a stupendous story worthy of a world-class spectacle.



    Australian filmmaker Gracey bring to life a story that, in the larger-than-life spirit of Barnum that bursts into a boldly imagined fictional realm, one full of infectious pop tunes, glam dances and a celebration of the transformative power of showmanship, love and self-belief as Academy Award® nominee Hugh Jackman immerses audiences in the very origins of mass entertainment and mega-celebrities in the 70s … the 1870s that is.



    P.T. Barnum may have lived over a century ago, but for Gracey, he was a progenitor of our times. He sees Barnum as a pioneer of today’s visionaries and entrepreneurs who’ve revolutionized social life, the Steve Jobs or Jay-Z of his day. The film is a musical reverie, an ode to dreams, not a biopic. But at its center is Barnum’s conviction that the drudgery of everyday life is something you can bust through into a realm of wonder, curiosity and the joys of being proudly different. Says Gracey: “When audiences came to experience a P.T. Barnum spectacle, they were completely transported out of the ordinary, and we try to do the same in this film in a contemporary way.”



    Adds Jackman, who devoted himself for years to bring the film to the screen: “It’s not exaggerating to say that Barnum ushered in modern-day America – and especially the idea that your talent, your imagination and your ability to work hard should be the only things that determine your success. He knew how to make something out of nothing, how to turn lemons into lemonade. I’ve always loved that quality. He followed his own path, and turned any setback he had into a positive. So many things I aspire to in my life are embodied in this one character.”



    The Greatest Showman also touches on another idea of these times: that of chosen families built around allowing people to express who they are without reservation. “Barnum pulled people together who the world might otherwise have ignored. And by bringing each of these people into the light he created a family who were always going to be there for each other,” concludes Gracey.



    “The Greatest Showman” will open January 31 in cinemas nationwide from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.

    Grabe sobrang ganda ng song na “This is Me”. Gives me chills. Very happy it won sa Golden Globes. Hope it wins Best Song sa Oscars.

    Attended the press screening last night. Movie didn't disappoint. I loved all the songs! Plot was pretty predictable but it was ok. Before going to see the movie, I was convinced 'This Is Me' was going to be the most memorable, but 'From Now On' turned out to be more powerful, more emotional even. Naiyak ako sa 'Never Enough' ni Rebecca Ferguson, lalo na sa reprise version.Naenjoy ko rin pub sequence nina Hugh at Zac. Loved everything about the film!

    May sneak preview ang movie on 22 and 23 in select Ayala Cinemas, before the movie rolls for a wide release on 31!

    “THE GREATEST SHOWMAN” SNEAK PREVIEWS ON JANUARY 22 AND 23 IN SELECT CINEMAS
    via press release

    Hugh_Jackman_in_THE_GREATEST_SHOWMAN.jpg

    The sneak previews of “The Greatest Showman” have been set on January 22 and 23 before its nationwide release on January 31.

    Starring an extremely talented ensemble cast composed of Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson and Keala Settle, “The Greatest Showman” is the most thrilling musical movie ever filmed for the big screen. With original songs by then unknown and now Oscar-winning duo Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, “The Greatest Showman” told through powerful series of dance and songs is a full-on celebration of humanity, our oddities and the larger-than-life belief in oneself amidst impossible hurdles.

    It’s a classic rags-to-riches story about a man who started out life with nothing, but by the sheer force of his imagination and ambition, realized his dreams, going on to transform entertainment, while becoming a global sensation. An optimist and an idealist responsible for inventing the Big Top, P.T. Barnum’s story is nothing short of remarkable. Hugh Jackman takes the leading role and it is impossible to imagine anyone other than the charismatic, Oscar-nominated and Tony-winning actor playing the legendary 19th-century impresario and showman.

    “The Greatest Showman” chronicles the journey of Phineas Taylor Barnum, who grows up poor and falls in love with Charity (Michelle Williams), his childhood sweetheart. The film follows the couple as they embark on an incredible series of adventures with their two daughters. Breaking down social and class barriers, he had an instinctive understanding of how to entertain people, amaze audiences and lift their spirits.

    Alongside Jackman, Zac Efron stars as Barnum’s protégé and business partner. Singer and actress, Zendaya, dazzles as a pink-haired trapeze artist. And Rebecca Ferguson shines as the iconic 19th-century soprano, Jenny Lind, also known as the ‘Swedish Nightingale’. Along with the dancers, gymnasts, acrobats and fire breathers who filled his thrilling circus, the showman hired a unique group of diverse performers, outsiders who were overlooked and ostracized by society at the time. P.T. Barnum’s ‘Oddities’ included the Bearded Lady (Keala Settle), and an exceptionally small man, ‘General Tom Thumb’ (Sam Humphrey). With no other chance to make a living or enter ‘normal’ society in the 1800s, P.T. Barnum gave these outsiders hope -- as well as jobs -- celebrating their individuality and treating them as a family. He had a strong belief in acceptance, a powerful theme in the film, and felt that what makes everyone different, actually makes them unique.


    Witness the power of one’s imagination in cinemas and the birth of show business – “The Greatest Showman” is a 20th Century Fox feature film to be distributed by Warner Bros. in PH.

    Is this an original song for the film? Eto ang pinakamagandang song sa movie.

    Yes. All songs used are original. Composed by Justin Paul and Benj Pasek. Sila din composers OMPST ng La La Land.
  • joshemirjoshemir #BeaverTraveler ✭✭✭
    Just watched it last night sa moviehouse.

    Umm... Story? Meh lang. Mukhang pinilit yung pagkakagawa ng movie. Way too predictable.

    Sa songs naman, hindi nila dinibdib yung kanta (aside from maybe a couple of songs na maayos ang pagkakadeliver). "Never Enough" was the highlight of the movie for me, both the original and reprise version. Muntik na akong tumayo para pumalakpak! :rotflmao:

    Na-gets ko din naman ang gustong mangyari ng creative team sa This Is Me. Kung grammy awards to, pwede tong maging song of the year! Kaso, sa case ng musical films, hindi siya naexecute ng ayos as part of the film. Pwede na, pero hindi siya sing-powerful ng pagkakagamit ng City of Stars sa La La Land, or "Suddenly" ng Les Mis.

    Nadisappoint ako sa movie. Ang hirap pag pumasok ka sa theater na mataas ang expectation sa ipapalabas. Whew!

    Hindi nila to ipinasa sa Academy for Original Song? Kung hindi, I guess hindi nila kayang magtake ng risk this year because of Coco.

    I watched this last night and was very entertained :D Enjoyed it so much.
    I do get bakit so-so reviews from critics, may something off sa story but personally I don't mind kasi the musical numbers were more than enough for me.

    Ang ganda nga nang pagka kanta ng NEVER ENOUGH :mecry:

    Favorite number ko REWRITE THE STARS, aliw na aliw ako sa trapeze stunts kahit medyo halata yung special effect minsan :lol: but that was very entertaining

    Also loved Hugh Jackman and Michelle Williams dance to A MILLION DREAMS, so elegant.

    Ma-impact yung rehearsals ng THIS IS ME and FROM NOW ON na uploaded sa YouTube so medyo undewhelming yung sa actual musical production na mismo, parang may kulang

    Bookending the movie with THE GREATEST SHOW *okay*
