    Cats (2019)

    Release date: December 20, 2019
    Studio: Universal Pictures
    Director: Tom Hooper
    MPAA Rating: N/A
    Screenwriter: Lee Hall
    Starring: Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, James Corden, Ian McKellen, Idris Elba, Laurie Davidson, Mette Towley, Judi Dench
    Genre: Musical

    Plot Summary: Based on Andrew Lloyd Webber’s perennial musical. Director Tom Hooper is exploring whether to do the film entirely in CGI, entirely in live-action, or a combination of both ala the recent hit "The Jungle Book."

    First performed in 1981, “Cats” is the fourth longest-running show in Broadway as well as West End history, with a direct-to-video version of the production released in 1998. Based on T. S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, the show is set amongst a larger- than-life junkyard playground and is alive with our favorite feline characters including Rum Tum Tugger, Mr. Mistoffelees, Macavity, Jennyanydots, Old Deuteronomy, Grizabella and Skimbleshanks.

    Cats (2019)

    The trailer is scarier than the one for IT.

    Also, this musical sucks. It’s arguably the most overrated one ever, the songs are mostly formulaic, the story is lame and even the big set pieces are unimpressive. No buys for me.

    Currently enjoying a plate of Pulpo Gallego via Tapastalk.

    I have to hand it to these folks. They somehow managed to make this movie look even worse than it already did.

    Re: Cats (2019)

    I just want to stress to anyone planning on watching this that they should really consider listening to a few of the songs beforehand. You'll instantly be able to decide whether it's worth it the moment you hear "Magical Mr Mistoffelees" or "Mungojerrie and Rumpelteazer" in all their insane glory.

    There's a rumor this movie has an estimated budget of £230 million ($300 million). That seems reasonable.

    Grosses
    DOMESTIC (73.2%)
    $11,185,980
    INTERNATIONAL (26.8%)
    $4,100,000
    WORLDWIDE
    $15,285,980
    Okay so the reported budget of 300 million was made wrong according to reports. But this movie did cost almost 100 million, and bombed.

    Re: Cats (2019)

    Wife went to see it earlier in the week and was rather disappointed with it, especially the lack of background changes. Sounds like they made it too much like the stage production for it to transfer well into the movie world.
    I have a plan so cunning......
