    ive said this before and I'll say it until the day I die, part of what made Cats iconic (for me at least) was the makeup and costumes. We all know what Cats on broadway looked BECAUSE of how iconic that makeup was. Could you imagine how many amazing makeup artists could have worked on that production?? not everything needs to be cgi nowadays

      Personally, the /finesseCATS makeup freaks me out, but it is absolutely iconic. Why would they go out of their way to remove the show's main visual identity? I assumed they were going to use CGI to enhance or finetune the original look, not sidestep it altogether. And for what? Animals with boobs and human noses who wear effing fur. This will probably make a bunch of money as a hate watch

      Dany Vierps 💯could not agree more. For me, CGI makes most things seem more fake, not more realistic. Unless it’s sci fi of course. And even then, I loved Original Star Trek so maybe I’m just an old soul? 🤷‍♀️

    Here's what would happen if they made the white people black cats: "IT'S BLACKFACE"
    What if they made the black people white cats? "IT'S WHITEWASHING"

    Have you hear the cats soundtrack of taylor swift on spotify?

    My thought. Do your homework! If you’re going to review a movie based on a musical (or book for that matter) at least know something about what it’s based on. So many comments I’ve read about the trailers for Cats, the movie are obviously written by people who have barely an idea of the original. Obvious example, OF COURSE Bustopher Jones has to be fat. In fact “remarkable fat” according to TSE.
    Also. NO ONE so far has commented on the amazing dance moves which hint at the athleticism of the whole production. It’s fantastic! Huge! ...And ignored as of no consequence. Really?? Open your eyes people.

    I have the gut feeling that they made James Corden Bustopher Jones, haven't checked it but it seems like this, that would explain why they made him fat.
    We can read in T.S. Elliott's poem:
    "Bustopher Jones is not skin and bones,
    in fact he's remarkably fat..."
    and later on it is mentioned that he weighs 25 pounds which, I am by no means an expert on this, means that he is a 12.5 kg cat and that seems a lot to me.

    The cats don't just stick to their races. Francesca Hayward (the pure white cat) is not a white. While she is not dark she is certainly NOT so pale as to be represented by a white cat. I don't think they were just trying to stick to race there.

    I would love to hear your insight and see your reaction to Beautiful Ghosts by Taylor Swift for the Cats musical. The style is very different, and I'd be interested to see what you think of how she uses her voice and changes her accent in accordance to the musical!

    Tristan Paredes So YOU'RE the obnoxious know-nothing a-hole that always seems to be sitting behind me at the movies loudly questioning each moment as it happens: wait, what was that? Who is that? I don't get it, why is this happening? Which one is Taylor Swift? Jesus. How about you watch more than three seconds before giving us your "reaction"? You're so sure of what it's all supposed to be that you don't allow what it actually is to work on you. Cats, (the B'way musical) is a piece of shit. A bunch of talented theater dancers in leotards, leggings and whiskers, behaving vaguely like kitties. This, on the other hand looks beautiful. Maybe it won't work - we'll have to wait to see more than the trailer, but given the talented team behind it, we have reason to be hopeful.

    I dont know how I feel about them doing a movie version like this. Cats to me is about the sleek movements that the dancers effortlessly perform. Along with the costumes. These are actors not dancers. but Jennifer Hudsan is a yes for me!

    Human lips? What about the HUMAN NOSES? They have taken my favorite musical and thrown it into the uncanny valley.
    Also,James Cordon is supposed to be Bustopher Jones, who is a fat cat.

    Jennifer Hudson kills it because she is the only one with musical training, she’s been in Broadway so many times maybe she can teach them a thing or two 😂

    I totally agree.
    This movie has the potential and it’s gonna be successful, yet everyone’s focusing on the “cgi” when they haven’t even seen the movie yet.
    In the end it’s all about the acting and how the story will turn out.

    I'm jumping late to this party, so forgive me if my comment is redundant, but... the white cat is played by Francesca Hayward who is a half-black professional ballerina. She's a white cat because the character is called "Victoria the white cat" (not even joking haha). Also, James Corden is a "fat cat" because of his character, Bustopher Jones, who's entire song is about how he's a fat cat.

    The same cats in the musical will be in the movie so they can't change the way they look too much. Except it seems they've changed the gender on a couple. Some of them were fat, some had a particular color pattern, etc. The musical director kept the human form of the actors on purpose and it seems they've portrayed it in the movie as well. I love the musical and I'm hype about the movie. Come at me 😂

    I'm offended that you didn't know the names of the cats. James Corden's character is named Bustopher Jones, he's fat in the musical.

    Also, they have boobs in the Broadway musical.

    They're making the actors look like the Cats characters from the production, for the most part. As someone who grew up with the Cats, there will never be a Grizabella other than Elaine Paige. Jennifer Hudson has chops but she's no Grizabella to me unfortunately.
    Also, historically speaking the role that Taylor Swift is playing is more of a dancing role, than singing. How's that going to go?

  • Samantha Grasso
    Samantha Grasso 20 days ago

    The difference between stage acting and camera acting is pretty big and noticeable. A stage actor is acting for the back of the audience, so much of what they do is exaggerated and over the top that way the audience in the back of the theater can still get the idea of the emotions the actor is portraying. There are even differences between the style of acting a musical demands verses a comedy/drama on stage requires. Where as in camera acting you’re given the opportunity to have more specific facial expressions and be more subtle in you’re acting. Stage actors aren’t always good on camera and camera actors aren’t always good on stage.

      @Justin Setzer I'm not a fan of either of them, I'll give Taylor Swift a chance who she is in her personal life I do not care about I've seen actors actresses and singers surprise me like Heath Ledger as the Joker really surprised me because I never liked that actor until I saw him play The Joker

    • Chris Sanchez
      Chris Sanchez 21 day ago

      @Justin Setzer honestly that's not really the problem with this film because I've seen them turn ordinary actors into pretty good singers like huge Jackman etc in my opinion it looks like bad writing and bad CGI effects that will take us out of the overall fantasy of what cats is supposed to be, the songs are easily singable the issue isn't whether one can sing better than the other that scares me is the direction of the film and the CGI effects plus acting. I believe that in Moulin Rouge they did it almost perfectly bringing a beautiful world to life with normal singers (most of them) I was not annoyed with the singing I must like this actually.
