Inspired by the imagination of P. T. Barnum, The Greatest Showman is an original musical that celebrates the birth of show business & tells of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a spectacle that became a worldwide sensation. The film is directed by Michael Grey and stars Hugh Jackman, Michcelle Williams, Zac Efron, Zendaya, and Rebecca Ferguson.

Keala Settle will be in the film as The Bearded Woman (as featured in the trailer). The actress made her debut in 2011 in Priscilla Queen of the Desert as Shirley. She soon originated the role of Norma Valverde in a new musical, Hands on a Hardbody along with other roles in Les Miserables, Waitress, Hairspray, and South Pacific.

Distributed by 20th Century Fox, The Greatest Showman is set to release in Philippine cinemas January 24, 2018!
