Montblanc has partnered with 20th Century Fox for the holiday film The Greatest Showman. It is a highly anticipated film inspired by the ambition and imagination of P.T. Barnum. Barnum was the American showman who founded the circus in the 19th century with his legendary “Greatest Show On Earth”.

The movie stars Montblanc ambassador Hugh Jackman as Barnum, and will feature Montblanc pieces including a heritage Minerva pocket watch from the maison’s Minerva Museum in Villeret, and a specially commissioned Meisterstück writing instrument with a ringmaster engraved on its nib.

Directed by Michael Gracey and featuring songs by Academy Award winners Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (La La Land), The Greatest Showman is a bold and original musical that celebrates the birth of show business through the story of Barnum. The film also stars Michelle Williams, Zac Efron, Zendaya and Rebecca Ferguson.

To mark the worldwide release of the movie, Montblanc has created a special Happy Holiday circus notebook with a yellow Saffiano calfskin leather cover featuring a printed circus design. The luxury stationery piece comes with a red bookmark and golden cut edges.
