The Entertainer for The Greatest Showman

THE GREATEST SHOWMAN (TGS): This December, Moët & Chandon is proud to announce its partnership with 20th Century Fox’s upcoming holiday musical, The Greatest Showman – starring Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, and Zendaya – inspired by the life and legacy of P.T. Barnum. The blockbuster will showcase vintage bottles of Moët & Chandon champagne throughout the film, highlighting Moët – The Greatest Entertainer – alongside P.T. Barnum, The Greatest Showman. For any TGS coverage you may be working on, I’d be happy to provide clips and images of the vintage champagne bottles featured throughout the film that your readers will love incorporating the modern versions into hosting this season.
