Universal Pictures has launched the second trailer for their upcoming adaptation of Cats, and it’s just as wild as you would imagine.
This morning brings us a brand new trailer for Cats, bringing more digital furry acting to your eyeballs than you ever needed:
On one hand, something about this movie just seems ill-advised. On the other hand, however, I’m fascinated and can’t look away. The weird cat-people visuals aside, the movie looks gorgeous and brings some nice visual style.
I know nothing of the original production’s story and this trailer isn’t exactly helping, but there’s something about it that keeps sucking me in.
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.
The film also stars Robbie Fairchild (Broadway’s An American in Paris), Laurie Davidson (TNT’s Will), hip-hop dance sensation Les Twins (Larry and Laurent Bourgeois), acclaimed dancer Mette Towley (featured in videos for Rihanna and Pharrell Williams’ N.E.R.D.), Royal Ballet principal dancer Steven McRae, and rising-star singer Bluey Robinson.
Cats hits theaters on December 20, 2019.
