The film features a cast consisting of names like Jennifer Hudson, Ian McKellen, Taylor Swift, Rebel Wilson, and Idris Elba. December 25th!
Cats, the film adaptation of the Broadway musical by director Tom Hooper (The Danish Girl), hits theaters on December 25 and Universal Pictures has already released its first trailer.
Inspired by the poems of T.S. Eliot collected in The Book of Skilled Cats of the old Possum, the story follows the tribe of the Jélicos cats on the night in which their leader, Old Deuteronomy, must choose one of them to ascend to a new life.
In advance, besides being able to see for the first time the final result of the technique used of 'motion-capture' to convert actors and actresses into cats, you can also listen for the first time to the version of the famous song 'Memory'.
Hooper already knows what it is to put behind the cameras of an iconic musical. In 2021 he did it with Los Miserables and the result was a film that pleased the public and critics. Now, bring to the big screen the work on the stages of Andrew Lloyd Webber with a cast consisting of Jennifer Hudson (Sing!), Judi Dench (The Red Spy), Ian McKellen (Beauty and the Beast), Idris Elba ( Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw), Rebel Wilson (Compulsive Thimbles), James Corden (Yesterday) and singers Jason Derulo and Taylor Swift; among others. On these lines, do not miss the trailer.
