Trailer Alert – The Greatest Showman
You can tell a lot about a movie by the time of year the studio chooses to release it. If a movie is being released between Memorial Day and Labor Day, there’s a solid chance it’s going to be an action movie. If it’s released on or around Halloween it’s going to be a horror movie and if it’s released during Christmas you bet your ass it’s going to be an uplifting story that’s going to capitalize on everyone being in the holiday spirit. It should come as no surprise then that The Greatest Showman, a movie about the rise of P.T. Barnum and his show business spectacle/circus has an inspiring theme to it’s trailer. In the mid 1800s I have to imagine people were more worried about dying from a splinter than enjoying something called ‘show business’, but Barnum had a vision and executed it to the T. Bearded women, midgets, trapeze artists, Zac Efron; you name it, he had it in his show. If you’re ever in need of a pick me up, watch this trailer and try not to smile. The Greatest Showman premieres Christmas day.
