Hugh Jackman is joining the circus and bringing the true story of Barnum and Bailey founder P.T. Barnum to life in his upcoming film The Greatest Showman.
“The guy could turn lemons into lemonade,” says Jackman. “It’s so much fun to play a guy with that kind of bravado, that amount of courage and that ability to dare to see things that no one else could and bring them out into the mainstream.”
In this exclusive video, viewers can go onto the rehearsal stage where Jackman and the cast, which includes Zac Efron, Zendaya and Michelle Williams, are putting the final touches on the film’s show-stopping number “Come Alive.”
From the rehearsal stage you’ll be whisked into the middle of the action on set and experience the excitement of movie-making up close as the cast and crew bring this incredible song from the original musical to life all around you, in 360.
