As Christmas comes closer and the nights draw in, we're all getting super excited at the fact that we can snuggle up and watch all the films possible.

It's also pretty exciting that the trailer for The Greatest Showman which stars Hugh Jackman and Zac Efron has just been released today too.

20th Century released a brand new trailer for the film, as well as an earlier than expected release date...

The rags to riches tale is set to be released on Boxing Day or the 26th of December for all you Grinches out there, which is a whole month earlier than what was originally stated. As always, it comes out a day earlier in the States.

Hugh plays the 'godfather of the circus', and Zac Efron is his business partner. The film also stars Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson, and Zendaya.

There's all the beautiful costumes and epic dancing that you could ever wish for in the P. T. Barnum story, and I for one can't wait for the film to hit cinemas next month.

Les Miserables was the last Christmas release that Hugh sung on way back in 2012, meaning fans are chomping at the bit for his singing, dancing and acting.

The Greatest Showman features the musical work of Academy Award-winning lyricists from La La Land, so if that's one of your faves, I can more or less guarantee that you'll LOVE this film.


The film has been a huge seven years in the making too, meaning that expectations are high, and by the looks of that trailer, they are definitely going to be met.

Earlier this year, a faulty pyrotechnics caused one of the set buildings to catch fire, and Zac Efron revealed that Hugh Jackman carried him out of the burning building. He adorably labelled it "every girl's dream".
