Zac Efron Goes Back to His Dancing Roots in The Greatest Showman

Zac Efron Goes Back to His Dancing Roots in The Greatest Showman
By now, teases of High School Musical reunions, secrets and alternate endings are the oldest click bait in the book. There's never going to be another HSM—at least not in the form that its original fans know—so it's about time to let it go. But those who thrive on nostalgia and are still clinging to a long-gone version of Zac Efron can still find ways to hold on to that memory. Take next month's The Greatest Showman. Is it about teenagers? No. Are there basketball games? Definitely not. But by God, there'll be dancing. The musical, which also stars Hugh Jackman, Michelle Williams and Zendaya, is inspired by the real-life tale of P.T. Barnum, who...

Awards Buzz: Hugh Jackman Stars in 'Greatest Showman' Trailer; Could He Be Nominated?

  • Movies.com
Hugh Jackman already stars in one of the best movies of the year, the X-Men spin-off Logan, and he gives a fine performance there. But the Oscars don't tend to recognize superhero movies. The Academy does have a history of loving big musicals, however. Therefore, The Greatest Showman might be Jackman's better chance of earning his latest nomination.  He stars as circus pioneer P.T. Barmum in the song-and-dance-filled biopic, opposite Michelle Williams as first wife Charity and Zac Efron as a fictional collaborator. Not only is the genre a positive for the Academy's notice, but the original songs are by the Oscar-winning La La Land duo Justin Paul and Benj Pasek.

Zendaya to Star in, Produce Movie About First African-American Woman to Graduate From Vassar
Zendaya will produce and star in the thriller “A White Lie,” playing the first African-American woman to graduate from Vassar College, Variety has learned.

The project is based on Karin Tanabe’s book “The Gilded Years,” which told the true story of Anita Hemmings, a light-skinned, African-American woman who was the descendant of slaves and passed as white so she could attend Vassar during the 1890s. She’s pulled into her elite world where she’s treated as a wealthy, educated white woman who finds romance with a moneyed Harvard student.

Hugh Jackman And Zac Efron Dance Their Way Through The Greatest Showman Trailer

It’s no secret that La La Land reignited Hollywood’s hunger for a modern musical, and that’s despite the fact that Damien Chazelle’s dreamy love story was piped at the post by Moonlight in spectacular fashion during February’s Oscar ceremony.

Perhaps more than anything else, La La Land stands as concrete proof that a modern-day musical is not only economically feasible, but also has the chance to become a critical and commercial hit – in the right hands, of course – and one director stepping up to the plate later this year is Michael Gracey.

His movie? The Greatest Showman, an original drama which looks to chronicle the remarkable rags-to-riches story of P.T. Barnum, who is often credited as the founding father of show business. Trading mutants for musicals is Logan actor Hugh Jackman, who calls upon his Les Misérables experience in today’s brand new trailer for the pic.

Danielle Harris Gives Her Thoughts On 2018’s Halloween Reboot: “I’m Bummed Out”

Turns out Danielle Harris isn’t a big fan of David Gordan Green’s forthcoming Halloween reboot.

Dubbed a total reinvention of the classic horror series, the director has already welcomed the return of Jamie Lee Curtis and Judy Greer (and Zac Efron, too?), as Green gears up for Laurie Strode’s final confrontation with Michael Myers.

But after four films in the Halloween franchise, Harris admits that the decision to double down on John Carpenter’s 1978 original, thereby ignoring all the sequels that followed, left her feeling “bummed out,” as it essentially rules out a return for either Jamie Lloyd or Annie Brackett.

I’m bummed out. And here’s why I’m bummed out. I’ve done four Halloween movies, and I’m grateful for those movies. I wouldn’t have all of you guys here… if it wasn’t for Halloween. I’m forever grateful and indebted to the Halloween franchise.
