Posted by December 18, 2017 Comment

Hugh Jackman has put down Wolverine’s claws and picked up the hate of P.T. Barnum in the new film The Greatest Showman. The film is described as: “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.” It’s directed by Michael Gracey and has a cast that includes Jackman, Michelle Williams, Zac Efron, Zendaya, and Rebecca Ferguson.

Last night, during a live performance of A Christmas Story on Fox, the cast of the movie pulled of a two-minute live commercial as the three main stars joined a full ensemble, singing and doing a dance routine to the film’s track, Come Alive. The piece starts with Jackman in his ringleader costume and then he is joined by Efron and Zendaya until a huge group is singing and dancing. It was like a 2-minute musical which Fox is calling the “world’s first live movie commercial”. You can see the performance below.

The Greatest Showman opens this Wednesday, December 20th.
