The Greatest Showman Synopsis:
Inspired by the imagination of P.T. Barnum, The Greatest Showman is an original musical that celebrates the birth of show business and tells of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a spectacle that became a worldwide sensation.
The Greatest Showman is a 2017 American period musical drama film directed by Michael Gracey, and written by Jenny Bicks and Bill Condon. The film stars Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson and Zendaya. The film is inspired by the story of how P. T. Barnum started the Barnum & Bailey Circus and the lives of its attractions.
Principal photography on the film began in New York City in November 2016. The Greatest Showman premiered on December 8, 2017 in New York City. It was released in the United States on December 20, 2017 by 20th Century Fox, seven months after the circus stopped operating for good, and has grossed $23 million worldwide.
The film received mixed reviews, with praise for the cast, energy and production value, but was criticized for the artistic license taken and some critics calling it “faux-inspiring and shallow”. At the 75th Golden Globe Awards, the film received three nominations: Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, Best Actor – Musical or Comedy (Jackman), and Best Original Song (“This is Me”).
