Okay, so apparently, some people find the just-released trailer for Cats to be kinda creepy.
Speaking for myself, the trailer pretty much looks like what I would expect a film version of Cats to look like. I mean, the entire point of the stage production is that everyone dresses up like a cat and sings their heart out! The cat costumes and the makeup are a part of the production so I don’t know what everyone’s complaining about….
Well, okay, I will admit that I cringed when Rebel Wilson showed up but that’s just because it was so inevitable that Rebel Wilson would be in this movie. She’s like the female version of James Corden and …. oh wait, he’s in the film too?
Listen, I’m going to say it right now. Cats is going to be great. Well, maybe not great but it’s definitely going to be something that you’re going to want to be able to tell your children that you witnessed firsthand. A friend of mine hasn’t done shrooms in like ten years but he’s planning on indulging for one night only, the night that he sees this film. That’s type of cultural phenomena that Cats has the potential to be! (That said, he won’t be seeing the movie with me because I don’t want to be around if he has a bad trip. I’m never really sure what my exact obligation is in a situation like that.) Some people are going to hate this film but I like the whole idea of the film encouraging people to believe in something more than just pure cynicism, I just wish the film starred actual cats.
Anyway, here’s the trailer. Taylor Swift’s in it so you know the movie’s going to be a financial success no matter what the critics say.
