The Greatest Showman and Breathe (2017) Trailers

Fresh off of La La Land's remarkable success comes Michael Gracey's original new musical, The Greatest Showman. The Christmas release will be a directorial debut for Gracey and it stars the theatrical stamina of Hugh Jackman. Its story follows the rise of P.T. Barnum (Jackman) and his revolutionary origins of "show business". Also featuring Michelle Williams, Zac Efron and Rebecca Ferguson, The Greatest Showman delivers some spectacular footage in its first official trailer. See it for yourself below.

Andrew Garfield has quite a cinematic year in 2016 with an Oscar-nominated turn in Hacksaw Ridge and a lead showing in Scorsese's Silence. Garfield returns this October in Andy Serkis' awards season hopeful, Breathe. Garfield stars as Robin Cavendish, an adventurous fellow who wins the love of his beautiful wife (Claire Foy), only to succumb to the paralyzing effects of polio. At first glance Breathe appears to filled with and Oscar-baity story and performance, but I'm feeling a bit skeptical of its chances. However, Garfield is a remarkably gifted actor and if anyone can pull it off, it's him. Catch the debut trailer for Breathe below.
