Hugh Jackman (center) plays huckster and circus founder P.T. Barnum in the musical “The Greatest Showman”. The Greatest Showman is a fun and energetic film about finding a place we fit in this world. The film also stars Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson and Zendaya.
“It’d been 23 years since a studio had said yes to an original movie musical”.
And his persistence and dedication making the blockbuster has earnt Hugh a Golden Globe nomination under the category “Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy”.
“For me, seven-and-a-half years ago, I’d done musicals on stage”, Hugh explained to Be on the red carpet. “So I love the risk, I like taking risks”. His first theatrical enterprise, in 1835, involved the exhibition of Joice Heth, an elderly, enslaved African woman, who was said to have been a hundred and sixty-one years old and to have raised George Washington (who was born in 1732).
“My best girlfriend Elizabeth does Christmas Eve for 30 people and we’re all going”, Kennerley told 9Honey. I’m really proud of everything I’ve done.
Leave it to Zendaya to stretch her style wings. In fact, we got proof for you. She swings on a rope, flying through the air, then swoops down to meet Carlyle, who embraces her, only to see her fly away again. First-time film director Michael Gracey has a real command of the choreography. The trouble is that dedicated performers in musical theater-of whom Jackman is definitely one-can nearly always be seduced into doing a musical no matter what the other possibilities. We’ve became really good mates. I feel like this movie also villainized Barnum and made him seem reckless and impervious to the conditions of the poor and downtrodden, although he was a victim of poverty.
The Greatest Showman is in Australian cinemas on Boxing Day. “It grew into a deeper idea that what makes you different makes you special”, Jackman told Vogue.
“This is testament to who he is as a person”. I think of him like a Steve Jobs or an Elon Musk. “I would love to see Shah Rukh in the Indian version of this film”, he added.
“There’s so much love in this movie and there’s so much love in that man”. When W.D. warns people won’t like seeing black performers onstage, the showman replies, with a knowing smirk: “Oh, I’m counting on it”. But The Greatest Showman hasn’t come to linger on that kind of self-reflection; it’s too busy delivering great spectacle, and a lot of swirly, shiny humbug.
