If you're looking to take your mind off the circus in Washington for a moment, Hugh Jackman is here to help. 

The first trailer for Jackman's upcoming P.T. Barnum musical biopic, "The Greatest Showman," has dropped, offering an early glimpse at the story of how the down-on-his-luck dreamer created the famed Barnum & Bailey Circus. 

Though that circus recently ended its 146-year run, the trailer for the film – which hits theaters Christmas Day and co-stars Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, Zendaya and at least one bearded lady — promises a feel-good, inspirational take on the erstwhile "Greatest Show on Earth."
