Michelle Williams in the greatest showman on earth

Hugh Jackman has been attached to the P.T. Barnum biopic The Greatest Showman on Earth for almost seven years. Every once in a blue moon, we’d get an update saying the project, which centers on the founder of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, is alive and well. After years of development, the project is maybe more alive than ever, as another actor, Michelle Williams (Manchester by the Sea), may finally join Jackman in The Greatest Showman on Earth.

Below, learn more about the biopic and who Michelle Williams might play.

Zac Efron in The Greatest Showman on Earth

Throughout the early 2000s, Zac Efron jumped around with small roles in TV shows and made-for-TV movies. But he caught his big break on The Disney Channel as one of the stars of High School Musical. The TV movies sparked two sequels, one of which actually ended up in theaters, and gave Efron the firm footing to launch a film career. Since then, he’s only returned to the musical world once with a supporting turn in Hairspray, but now he’ll finally be singing and dancing on the big screen again.

Zac Efron is currently in talks to take a role alongside Hugh Jackman in The Greatest Showman on Earth, the circus musical that has been developing since 2009, following the creation of the three-ring Barnum & Bailey Circus.

X-Men Apocalypse Review

As the third film in the most recent trilogy in the X-Men franchise, it’s pretty bold to have a joke in X-Men: Apocalypse that mentions the third film in a trilogy is usually the worst. The line is meant to take a shot at the almost universally hated X-Men: The Last Stand, and while X-Men: Apocalypse is nowhere near as bad as Brett Ratner’s film from 2006, it’s not without some shortcomings of its own.

X-Men: Apocalypse has a simple, hollow story, spinning a wheel that also treads water. However, it also does a great job of bringing the young versions of familiar X-Men into this modified timeline and delivers some thoroughly entertaining action. In short, X-Men: Apocalypse feels like an extended episode of X-Men: The Animated Series, for better and worse.

wolverine 3 rating

A few months ago, it was rumored that The Wolverine 3 would be shooting for an R rating. But not because of the success of Deadpool. No sir. It definitely has nothing to do with that film skyrocketing to the top of the superhero heap, becoming the highest-grossing X-Men movie and trampling the likes of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice at the domestic box office. Yep, this was certainly a decision being made entirely independent of that. Of course. Uh huh.

Anyway, producer Simon Kinberg recently sat down for a new interview and confirmed that the next (and possibly final) adventure of Hugh Jackman‘s adamantium-clawed superhero will be R-rated. He also announced the movie has quietly begun filming and that yes, everyone was correct when they assumed that this movie would be based on the “Old Man Logan” storyline.

Wolverine in X-Men Apocalypse

Just yesterday, the final trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse arrived, and along with all the destruction that comes from the film’s title villain played by Oscar Isaac was a little tease of the return of Wolverine, played by Hugh Jackman. When we last left Wolverine in X-Men: Days of Future Past, he was being rescued from drowning by Mystique in disguise as William Stryker, and many fans have been wondering where we’ll find him in this sequel.

The X-Men: Apoclaypse trailer offered a little hint of the clawed, healing mutant helping out the young versions of Cyclops and Jean Grey take down some bad guys. Now director Bryan Singer talks a little more about what we can expect from his place in the movie, which he says features “the birth of a new direction.” Find out more about Wolverine in X-Men Apocalypse after the jump.

Check out the latest X-Men: Apocalypse trailer, featuring the first little peek at Wolverine, below.

The buzz leading up to X-Men Origins: Wolverine was toxic. Reports of huge creative differences didn’t help, but things got worse when the film leaked online. After a rocky production, it wasn’t very surprising when the film turned out to be a major disappointment. Director Gavin Hood has done fine work since then, like Ender’s Game and Eye in the Sky, but X-Men Origins: Wolverine sticks out of his filmography like a sore thumb, for a variety of reasons.

The director hasn’t said too much about the film in the past, but now he’s opened up a little about his experience on the 2009 comic book movie.

Wolverine 3 R-Rated

Just a few days after Deadpool stormed the box office with unexpected record-breaking numbers, rumblings surfaced that 20th Century Fox was considering going for an R-rated comic book sequel for the developing Wolverine 3. It seemed like a knee-jerk reaction at the time, but not one that fans were going to complain about. Who doesn’t want to see Wolverine get some blood on his claws? But it turns out that Deadpool might not have been much of a factor in that decision by the studio. Find out more below. Read More »
