Cats trailer: This multi-starrer musical looks exquisite

Cats is slated for a December 20 release. Cats is based on the musical of the same name, which in turn was inspired by poet TS Eliot’s work Old Posumm’s Book of Practical Cats. This is Hooper’s second musical after the resounding success of the multi-starrer Les Miserables. The movie boasts of a big star cast including A listers like Judi Dench, James Corden, Jennifer Hudson, Rebel Wilson and Idris Elba. American singing sensation Taylor Swift will be making her big Hollywood debut with the Tom Hooper directorial. Watch the trailer of Cats here:

Tom Hooper is best known for helming the Oscar-winning The King’s Speech. The film revolves around the story of a tribe of cats called Jellicles, who, one fateful night, have to tackle circumstances which would change their present and future forever. The movie has been executive produced by Steven Spielberg. Advertising

While the trailer has evoked mixed reactions from fans of the original, the movie in itself looks beautifully shot and choreographed. 0
