Get ready to “believe” as Universal Pictures releases the first official trailer for the upcoming theatrical version of Broadway hit Cats. View trailer below.
Over the course of a single night, a tribe of cats called the Jellicles make what is known as “the Jellicle choice” and decide which cat will ascend to the Heaviside Layer and come back to a new life.
I’ve seeing plenty of Broadway plays from Les Miserable to Phantom of the Opera. So, yes I’ve actually seeing Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Broadway musical Cats. However, my memory on the play is a little bit vague. Still, I remember the costumes were great and the song “memories” as well as the ending of the story. Given the fact there has been several film adaptations of Broadway shows, it was almost inevitable that Hollywood would eventually get around to doing a movie version of Cats. Judging from the trailer above, the quality of the movie looks good and the cast is quite a star-studded one. However, I’m a little bit skeptical about the movie. Can’t really put my finger on it. I’ll just have to wait and see if the skepticism wears off before the movie gets released…..
Cats arrives in theaters on December 20th, 2019
