Movie Trailer: ‘Cats’ [Starring Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, Idris Elba]

Published: Thursday 18th Jul 2019 by Rashad

The jaw-dropping trailer to Academy Award-winning director Tom Hooper’s highly anticipated adaptation of the iconic musical ‘Cats’ dropped today and we couldn’t be more excited.

Pouncing into theaters December 20, the CGI-laden flick – which stars a slew of familiar music stars including the likes of Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, and Jason Derulo – also calls on Hollywood heavy hitters Idris Elba, James Corden, Rebel Wilson, Ian McKellen, and Judi Dench to help round out the cast.

Featuring the unforgettable Andrew Lloyd Webber score, including the play’s signature tune, ‘Memory’ (performed by Hudson), the screenplay is written by Lee Hall (famous for his work on the recent Elton John biopic ‘Rocketman’) and the legendary Steven Spielberg signed on to executive produce.

    I hate a musical and this looks the same as the others, boring AF.

      I agree it is missing something! Casting Jennifer was smart because I always thought her voice was more suited for Broadway than RnB but it is missing something like the other side of broadway….Fantasia or Toni Braxton or both…aka…somebody with broadway experience but a unique voice!

    Yawn.

    Wtf did I just watch? This is scary. What were they thinking.
    Look at academy award winners Judi dench and Jennifer Hudson, they look a mess with that horrible cgi

    Jennifer Hudson and all that damn yelling

    • DeanD July 19, 2019

      It’s not so bad in the beginning when she’s in her higher register but when she takes it to church you can barely make out what song she’s supposed to be screaming, I mean singing.

      • Boss Up July 19, 2019

        She had to sing it in a slight British accent and instead of making it pretty,the director wanted to focus on the emotional context of it. Love that it’s not a “perfect” vocal!

    I’m not freaked out by uncanny valleys, so this looks weird in a good way! People are so sensitive these days! Y’all some scaredy cats 🐱 😂 I mean, what’s wrong with being a little scared? This reminds me of movies back in the day…all types of weird ish to watch lol 🎥 🍿 #CATS

    Oops just when Nala thought she had the Oscar in the bag , effie comes back from the dead and f**** it up. Nala just get ready to wear w nice dress, walk the red carpet, peform SPIRATTTEEEEEE and go home. The year just got interesting.

    • Boss Up July 19, 2019

      Well…technically Bet will only be eligible for the Oscar for Best Original Song this year with “Spirit’.” I think that what she is gunning for. Smart move because her acting wasn’t going to nab it for her. JHud indeed could be eligible for Best Supporting Actress again this year.

      • Kelly Key July 19, 2019

        In my opinion Spirit is a good song but not a great one I doubt it will win the oscar. On the other way i’m sure JHud will get that nom, i’m anxious to see that movie just for her.

  7. It’s a shame July 19, 2019

    That version of Memory is atrocious.

    • DeanD July 19, 2019

      I knew it would be when they cast JHud, and she didn’t disappoint.

    • Boss Up July 19, 2019

      How is it atrocious and you’ve only heard 20 secs of it? Sounds like Jennifer delivered an exceptional performance. We shall see come December 🤩

  8. Banks no tyra July 19, 2019

    Beyonce and Jennifer Hudson maybe up for Oscar’s again, beyonce done released an whole album dedicated to the film and watch Jennifer Hudson walk away with the oscar

    • K.B. July 19, 2019

      • Boss Up July 19, 2019

        Right! Lol

  9. XYZ July 19, 2019
