Trailer: CATS The Movie

Jennifer Hudson as ‘Grizabella’ in CATS

The trailer for the upcoming live-action movie of CATS the musical has landed.

I think it has some amazing visuals going on, although the anthropomorphic/naked cat look will take a bit of getting used to.

Along the way, there looks to be some fantastic casting with Rebel Wilson as ‘Jennyanydots,’ Sir Ian McKellen as ‘Gus the theater cat,’ Dame Judi Dench as ‘Deuteronomy,’ and James Corden as ‘Bustopher Jones.’

Oh, and Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson belts out the show’s hit tune, “Memory,” throughout.

Ah yes, ‘the magical Mr. Mistoffelees’…
