The trailer of star-studded film Cats is released and mixed emotions with fans expressing puzzlement and even fear at the look of the movie. Taylor Swift, playing Bombalurina, heads an all-star cast including Idris Elba, James Corden, Francesca Hayward, Dame Judi Dench and Jason Derulo.
The film is a musical fantasy based on the musical of the same name. The plot includes Over the course of a single night, a tribe of cats called the Jellicles to make what is known as "the Jellicle choice" and decide which cat will ascend to the Heaviside Layer and come back to a new life.
The film uses the actors' faces and covers their bodies in computer-generated fur as they sing and dance on a larger than life set. The actors almost look naked in their feline get-ups.
The film is directed by Tom Hooper and distributed by Universal Pictures. Cats is slated to release on December 20 2019.
