La La Logan has officially returned, but we all know Jackman is more than that, and like the title says, he is truly one of the greatest showmen we have working today. With Jackman’s career transitioning post Logan, we get to see the Aussie go back to his musical roots as P.T. Barnum in this original musical that also stars Zac Efron, Zendaya, Michelle Williams, and Rebecca Ferguson.
I’m definitely pleased to see this unique ensemble cast getting to work together in a film like since, especially Zac Efron with his return to musicals because we all know the man’s got it in that department. Zendaya may just have the best agent in Hollywood as well or she just kills these auditions because she seems to be popping up in noteworthy films this year with Spider-Man: Homecoming being the other noteworthy project.
I’m not sure what that song was, but I wasn’t a huge fan of it until it progressed with the trailer and the singer’s pipes decided to burst with powerful notes and chill inducing pitch. Unlike, La La Land, we didn’t get little snippets of the film’s songs, but we did learn that this will be an optimistic, colorful, and vibrant musical with a cast that’s worth seeing come Christmas time.
