Zac Efron recently posted a photo of an essay for The Greatest Showman, the musical inspired by Barnum debuting on December 20 which reminds us of his days in the High School Musical series.
We know that the actor, Zac Efron, is promoting the new movie, “The Greatest Showman” which opens on December 20. The truth is that a few hours ago the actor shared a photo of one of his performance during the filming of this new movie and woke up Troy Bolton for the fans of “High School Musical”.
“Ladies and gentlemen, this is the moment you have waited for, we dance with all our heart. #GreatestShowman,” Efron wrote in a post on his official Instagram account, and invited us to watch the trailer. For those who do not know, “The Greatest Showman” will be a musical film that will tell the story of PT Barnum, the famous founder of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. Within the film we will meet artists like Hugh Jackman, Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson and Zendaya .
As we all know that Zac Efron is 1.73 m tall which is average height, but he looks great with Hugh Jackman.
The story starts when Barnum loses his job and in the midst of a great economic crisis and that his company in which he works, declares bankruptcy. With the typical pressures of feeding his wife and children, the character thinks of creating a collective of artists that will become the success of entertainment. Within this group will come an illusionist Phillip Carlyle (Zac Efron) and a trapeze artist Anne (Zendaya) and a love story will be born among them. The whole film is set in the style of Moulin Rouge .
Four months ago, the first trailer for ‘The Great Showman’ was released with the promise of being a show full of life. Now that the second trailer has been launched, it is no longer just a promise, it is a reality. The film starring Hugh Jackman and Michelle Williams will be full of contemporary music that blends perfectly with the overall setting of the show. Among the cast are also recognized actors such as Zac Efron , Zendaya and Rebecca Ferguson.
The film is inspired by the life of PT Barnum , a politician, businessman and showman who is remembered for being a famous comedian and for founding the Barnum & Bailey circus.
The most interesting thing about this movie is not only the fabulous cast that it has, but also the music that is in it. The sound is almost more protagonist than Hugh Jackman himself. For that reason, it is not surprising that they have left their composition to the Oscar winners for best song Benj Pasek and Justin Paul who fell in love last year with the soundtrack of ‘ The City of Stars: La La Land ‘ .
Director Michael Gracey told Vogue that the musical style of “The Great Showman” would be a mash-up between musical theater and pop. Choreography is also a mixture of classic and contemporary. According to ScreenRant, this idea of opting for modernity was, among others, Hugh Jackman who not only embodies Barnum, but also is the executive producer of the film.
In addition, the new trailer gives a couple of clues about how the sound will be, although it is a bit short to fully notice. However, the two songs used in the exposed footage ‘This is me’ and ‘The Greatest Show’ can be heard in full on YouTube.
The film will arrive in cinemas on December 25, 2017 under the direction of Michael Gracey, Australian director who will soon be in charge of filming the biopic of Sir Elton John.
With this we get an idea of how vibrant and emotional this musical is going to be that pretends to make you believe that any dream is possible to fulfill in the most wonderful way. ‘El gran Showman’ will be released in theaters on December 25.
