In a role that his whole life may have been leading up to, Hugh Jackman becomes circus leader P.T. Barnum in the biographical musical drama The Greatest Showman.

While Jackman takes on the role of the founder of the famous traveling Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, he’s surrounded by a few other stellar actors. Michelle Williams plays his wife, Charity, while Zac Efron, Rebecca Ferguson and singing/dancing/acting sensation Zendaya also get into the swing of circus life.

It’s been a long time coming, but we finally have an official trailer. The Greatest Showman certainly looks like it will be quite an experience – we’ll be able to find out when it arrives in Australian cinemas on December 26.
