Montblanc Stars On The Silver Screen
November 29th 2017
Directed by Michael Gracey, The Greatest Showman will hit cinemas December 20 and stars Montblanc brand ambassador Hugh Jackman. The highly anticipated release is inspired by the ambition and imagination of P.T. Barnum, the American showman who founded the circus in the 19th century with his legendary Greatest Show On Earth, a bold and original musical that celebrates the birth of show business through the story of Barnum, an unconventional visionary who rose from nothing to create a worldwide sensation. The movie stars Montblanc brand ambassador Hugh Jackman as Barnum, and will feature Montblanc pieces including aheritage Minerva pocket watch from the Maison’s Minerva Museum in Villeret, Switzerland, and a specially commissioned Meisterstück writing instrument with a ringmaster engraved on its nib.
“We are delighted to support this movie as it not only features our brand ambassador Hugh Jackman but also shines a light on the cultural influence of a man who invented modern entertainment,” explains Nicolas Baretzki, Montblanc CEO. “With a history rooted in innovation, Montblanc has a tradition of celebrating those whose lives have a lasting impact on human civilization.”
