A movie version of Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical Cats has been in the works for a while and after speculation over the last day or so, Taylor, Jennifer Hudson as Grizabella, Ian McKellan & James Cordon have all supposedly been cast! This is directed by Tom Hooper (Les Miserables, The King's Speech) and set to come out late 2019 (filming late this year)!

I'm SO excited for this <3

Taylor barely has one vocal chord, and cannot act her way through a 3 minute music video.....J-Hud could fart and it'd have better vocal control and can act.

The trailer is out for this and itís absolutely horrifying.




I donít understand why on earth anyone funded this. From what Iíve heard Cats is a pretty hated musical and trying to make the actors to look like cats is such a horrible idea. Iím expecting somewhere between 0-15% on Rotten Tomatoes and a lot of Razzies nominations.

Oh my gosh, that looks creepy, like REALLY creepy. I mean I can understand that bipedal look for a stage musical, but this is film, what's the problem with making them look like, y'know, REAL CATS or just straight out animated cats?! I mean anything's better than that horror.

This still looks awful even without that though, Taylor Swift, James Corden and Jason sodding Derulo acting is enough to prove that. A shame as they seem to have also gotten some really good names as well.

I couldnít believe when Jason Deruloís name came up

I also canít believe this is from the same director as Oscar nominated movies like Les Mis and The Kings Speech.

But you can bet Iím excited to see it as soon as itís released, just to see how awful it is in full..

This trailer just has to be a parody/skit or something? No way anyone actually thinks this looks even remotely good. The backlash this trailer has received is probably absolutely mortifying for anyone connected to this project lmao. Creepy is an understatement.

omg i think the Jason Derulo one is the weirdest, it feels like his facial features are coming off the Ďcatí

This could have easily been fine with prosthetics. I wonder if they were worried they couldnít find the right level of star power to sit through the hours of prosethetics it would have taken though.

This is getting absolutely dragged online, the reviews are hilarious! laugh.gif Some calling it 'overly horny' and an 'absolute nightmare'. Think this might bomb at the Box Office too!

Is anyone surprised lmao

The reviews will be 10x more entertaining than the movie I guarantee it, all thatís left to see is which godawful movie (this or Star Wars) hasnt slaughtered its legacy

Oh I think this will be huge and the reviews won't matter. It'll be good counter-programming to Star Wars and I think a lot of people will be interested in seeing it just to see for themselves how bad it is

Initially I think it'll do well but just look at how 'Last Christmas' has fell off due to bad reviews, I think it'll probably do similar to that.

Enjoy:

Boston Globe
My eyes are burning. Oh God, my eyes.

Collider
Can you make a movie so bad that the Academy takes back your Best Director Oscar? Asking for Tom Hooper.

The Beat
Cats is the worst thing to happen to cats since dogs.

Hollywood Reporter
Cat-astrophic.

LA Times
"CatsĒ is both a horror and an endurance test.

Slashfilm
There is a thin line between idiocy and genius, and Cats pukes a hairball on it and rubs its ass all over it.

Variety
Nine may not be enough lives for some of the stars to live down their involvement in this poorly conceived and executed adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webberís hit musical.

Little White Lies
I felt the light inside me slowly fading.

The Playlist
Once Tom Hooper's 110 minutes of Cats are over, theater is dead. And we unchosen ones are left, tragically, to continue living.

New York Times
It's amazing to see what Adult Swim can accomplish with a $100 million budget. I never knew Tom Hooper was capable of making a surrealist nightmare that would rival Jodorowsky, that could baffle David Lynch, that would prompt even the dark god Cthulhu to emit an impressed eldritch shriek of ďneheheheheheĒ

Vulture
To assess Cats as good or bad feels like the entirely wrong axis on which to see it. It is, with all affection, a monstrosity.

The Daily Telegraph
Glad to report that Cats is everything youíd hoped for and more: a mesmerisingly ugly fiasco that makes you feel like your brain is being eaten by a parasite. A viewing experience so stressful that it honestly brought on a migraine.

Den of Geek
One of the weirdest and most garish monstrosities to be birthed out of the Hollywood studio system in this century.

Vanity Fair
Itís an ugly stray who smells bad and should not be invited into your home, certainly. And yet it is its own kind of living creature, worthy of at least some basic compassion.

The Guardian
A purr-fectly dreadful hairball of woe. 1/5.

Indiewire
Tom Hooperís feline musical is an absurd and exuberant mess. This visually dense adaptation of the Andrew Lloyd Webber hit is at once too crazy for this world, and not quite crazy enough.

Newsday
Fans of the stage musical may swoon, but others will be severely allergic.

The Wrap
Andrew Lloyd Webberís feline fantasy musical becomes a garish hairball. Itís hard to ďruinĒ Webberís already strange musical, but Tom Hooperís wrongheaded attempt certainly tries. Tom Hooperís jarring fever dream of a spectacle is like something that escaped from Dr. Moreauís creature laboratory instead of a poetís and a composerís feline (uni)verse, an un-catty valley hybrid of physical and digital that unsettles and crashes way more often than it enchants.

Bleeding Cool
Cats is a strange beast to begin with, but the combination of strange CGI makes the translation from stage to screen even worse.

Slant
This adaptation gets straight to the heart of the material, which is basically two hours of stray cats introducing themselves.

Rendy Reviews
On a scale of one to Zemeckis, Hooper's Cats boldly goes beyond the uncanny valley and creates a tier of its own.

Screen Junkies
A spectacular disaster...This movie feels like a prank but I don't know on whom.

The Jam Report
The most inexplicably bizarre film of the year, it's jawdropping for all the wrong reasons.

RTE Ireland
First off, full disclosure - I am not a cat person. Second off - after watching this frankly mortifying film adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Cats, I'm not altogether sure I am a movie person anymore either.

Ngl I kind of do but I know 10 minutes in I'd regret it and want to walk out laugh.gif It's one of those things that the more bad things I hear about it, the more curious I am to see just how bad it is.
