We’ve got our hands on the first official trailer of Cats, the upcoming drama comedy movie directed by Tom Hooper and starring Francesca Hayward, Idris Elba, Jennifer Hudson, Taylor Swift, Jason Derulo, Judi Dench, Ian McKellen, Rebel Wilson, and James Corden:
“Oscar-winning director Tom Hooper (The King’s Speech, Les Misérables, The Danish Girl) transforms Andrew Lloyd Webber’s record-shattering stage musical into a breakthrough cinematic event.
Cats stars James Corden, Judi Dench, Jason Derulo, Idris Elba, Jennifer Hudson, Ian McKellen, Taylor Swift, Rebel Wilson and introduces Royal Ballet principal dancer Francesca Hayward in her feature film debut.
Featuring Lloyd Webber’s iconic music and a world-class cast of dancers under the guidance of Tony-winning choreographer Andy Blankenbuehler (Hamilton, In the Heights), the film reimagines the musical for a new generation with spectacular production design, state-of-the-art technology, and dance styles ranging from classical ballet to contemporary, hip-hop to jazz, street dance to tap.”
Can’t say am excited about this film… It looks kind of ugly… Maybe die-hard cat lovers will like it?
The release date of the movie is set to December 20, 2019 (in theaters).
Stay tuned for updates.
